The day has finally arrived- POP that cork and Light that sparkler!

2013-09-30_12-11-29 As all of you know, I have been waiting for this day to come. If any of you have written a book, you know that this is a very BIG day. The day that your vision, blood sweat and tears, and all the long hours and work days come to fruition. It’s the moment that your literary baby is released to the world! TODAY, October 1st, 2013,¬†is that day. Just know that all the support from my family and friends, clients and assistants, art directors and editors, offered along the way did not go unnoticed. Thank you.

A special thank you to my darling husband Frank, my chief advisor, cheerleader and hand holder through out this process. He is simply the best. A huge thank you to my kids for telling me along the way that I could do this. To my photographer Deborah Whitlaw Llewellyn … thank you.¬†Deborah is brilliant and humble, the best combination. None of this would have been possible without my sweet and smart editor Chris at Rizzoli, their fantastic PR and Sales team and of course the leader of the whole circus… Janice Shay. She’s the best in the business and of course I can’t forget my right hand man Justin. Thank you. 76371df987e9fe269f800c24c7335b37 It’s been a labor of love. This is the part where I tell you to buy my book here. In the book I offer menus with detailed party planning notes and recipes for special holidays and gatherings. It is chock full of all of my secrets from styling for over 20+ years. Read more about the book here. Can’t wait to see you reap the rewards of your newfound expert party planning skills. Please let me know how it goes! I want to see your pics. Also, I would love for you to tweet me and send me messages… I want to hear from you! Your feedback and thoughts mean so much. POP that cork and come on everybody “Let’s Party”! xx

Here’s a little Champagne cocktail recipe from the book to make and toast along with me, cheers!
