"I love the puzzle of throwing special, chic parties with down-to-earth budgets, and lucky you, I'm psyched to share my secrets." Tori Spelling planned her very first party (her own roller skate-themed birthday with a hot-pink- and-turquoise color scheme) at the age of eight, and she's been hosting friends and family in her home ever since. She knows as well as anyone that "style" and “elegance” don't often play well with “budget.” Well, with celebraTORI, she rolls up her sleeves and turns that notion on its head-expertly showing how creativity, passion, and smart planning are the secret ingredients for throwing a truly unforgettable bash on any "real world" budget. All it takes is a little elbow grease and a lot of imagination to transport your guests to another world as soon as they walk through the door. In this delightfully entertaining, must-have party companion, Tori shares all the tips and tricks she's learned from her most successful soirees (and a few train wrecks). It’s like having your own personal party planner for a fraction of the cost! celebraTORI is not just instructional, it's inspirational. Hosting an event is not about ticking to-dos off a list; it’s about turning an organic idea into a fun day you and your guests won't forget-so much so that you just can’t wait to do it again . . . with a different theme, of course. Tori covers all the basics, from discovering new reasons to celebrate and choosing a concept, to decorating, creating flower arrangements, making refreshments, and building the corner-stone of any great party: the dessert table! The best part is that all of her suggestions, including her mouthwatering recipes, are 100 percent do-it-yourself. Filled with lots and lots of great advice, handy blueprints, and hilarious anecdotes, celebraTORI will be the most important guest at your next party. It's the perfect foundation for taking life’s special occasions up a notch . . . or five. ***They say the devil’s in the details, but for me the details are heaven. Maybe an avid planner and host like me should say that in the course of the party I'm on a cloud of joy, but that would be a lie. Planning and preparing are my favorite parts of the process. Truth be told, when it comes to the actual parties, I'm a nervous wreck. But there is a moment of joy. Mine comes when I see the party come together. The guests are flowing through the space, tasting food, trying out any activities, having conversations with friends and strangers. And when I see someone take a bite of dessert, or try out a photo booth costume, or smile as they pick up a favor, well, that makes it all worth it. Creating a party. It's my favorite thing to do, and I’m inviting you, as my guest, to join me in the festivities. I know we’re going to have fun. Come-discover your inner party planner! Love, Tori

Like a kid in a candy store

Tori's personality really comes across in her party planning book and makes it a fun and informative read. For anyone who is a fan of Tori and her show then this book can surely do no wrong as there is quite a section of backstory on Tori and how she got into parties as a kid, and plenty of daily anecdotes, too. The information she provides is more of a narrative than a 'how to' and I was a little bit surprised that in spite of the blurb, only four party themes were showcased. I was expecting much more. Those that are shown, though, are very inspiring and are a good case study on which to build your own ideas, and bring them to fruition. The pictures are great, too. But again it would have been nice if there had been more. This book actually tries to do a lot for its size: bit of bio, bit of party planning strategy, bit of themes, and a bit of recipes. It does make for a pleasant pick and mix, and I enjoyed it very much. Just bear it in mind though that if you are a seasoned party planner already, or Tori as a personality isn't something you are into, then this book might not be exactly what you were after. For me, though? I thought it was great - just would have been nice to have had more of everything.
