I purchased this cookbook through Readers Digest books several years ago and have found it to be a lifesaver when it comes to planning a party. This cookbook has everything you could possibly need in planning a party or event. From appetizers to desserts and snacks to entrees they are all included.
I used this cookbook for recipes for my son and daughter-in-laws wedding shower for which we prepared Cranberry/Strawberry punch, Creamy Crab Salad, Shrimp Pasta Salad, Spinach Cheese Mushroom Caps and Parmesan cheese straws with Creamy Coconut Chocolate Pie for dessert. There is also a section on setting a lovely table for the ladies.
I have gone to the Taste of Home Celebrations cookbook for recipes for dips and snacks for our Euchre Club, appetizers and desserts for our Christmas Eve get together, and recipes for the annual Fourth of July celebration. There are lots of ideas for table decorations for holiday dinners as well. This cookbook has become one of my favorites and has replaced several others as the recipes are easy, delicious and always receive rave reviews. I believe this cookbook is still available and you can probably find it by doing a Google Search. Happy Cooking.
