Ranging from 'Any Excuse to Celebrate' soirees to 'A Wine-Tasting Party Even Beer Drinkers Will Love', every party has step-by-step guidance to ensure you throw a great bash.
Including helpful tips and tidbits and more than 60 recipes for delicious cocktails and suggested menus that can be made ahead of time, 'Cocktail Parties, Straight Up' is the ultimate blueprint every girl or guy needs for hosting a fun and memorable party.
