Book Review

Most of the ideas are fresh and really inspiring for any party you may be planning. The color and materials combinations are unique and attractive. Some people feel daunted about the idea of planning a party and in this book there are ideas for making wine glass charms, ice bucket, party hat, plates, favors, vases, place cards, luminary, garland, pinwheels, thank-you cards, napkin rings, wreath, centrepieces, utensil bucket and candles for a number of occasions. The celebrations include New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthday, Graduation, Bridal Showers, Weddings, Housewarming Parties, Baby Showers and Anniversary and Retirement parties

The styles of the projects in this book are very elegant but simple to make. The instructions aren’t laid out in the typical numbered step-by-step style but are very clearly written and the process explained in a manner for all levels of crafters to understand. Normally I would prefer there to be a supplies list with each craft idea but looking at the photo and reading the instructions helps you decide whether it is what you want to use for your party. Once you have decided what you want to make there is a Project Materials chapter at the back of the book that lists all the materials as well as the specific brands used. The materials lists are accompanied by photo and name of the projects for easy access to the product information. If additional information is required on the specific materials there is a Resources page at the back as well. Some of the projects involve the use of a template and this is at the back of the book, which isn’t as nice as having it with the project instructions, but this is a minor inconvenience.
