Review: The Best Party Book Ever! by the editors of faithGirlz

Best Party Book Ever!From invites to overnights and everything in between

By Editors of Faithgirlz! and Girls' Life Mag
Published by Zondervan

   I was interested in this book because I've been cooking and baking since I was a little girl and as for family has been doing those since before I was born! As of now, we still do eleven themed parties a year. Needless to say, we love coming up with ideas for decorating, foods to prepare, etc. etc. 
I was actually pleased with this book for girls. It was full of fun ideas for parties and get-togethers. There were examples as to decor, yet it wasn't overbearing, leaving the young hostess plenty of room for imagination! Menu ideas were given as well as actual recipes, found at the back of the book. These recipes are surprisingly real. I was expecting them to be full of store-bought mixes and such, but instead the authors wisely decided to create simple recipes the girls can make from scratch. Many of them could even be converted to ''healthy''! The parties in here are all fun and pretty. Very feminine. I can assure you your daughter, any young girl in your life, or even yourself will be delighted with the ideas presented here. The pictures are pleasant and bright. (and as an aside, the models have come a long way from models of 1990's craft books. ;) )
I appreciated all the ''hostess tips'' included in this paperback as well. After reading this book, your daughter will definitely know more about becoming a gracious hostess. There are tips for the reader as guest too. 

I recommend this book to every girl who loves (or wants to learn to love) giving parties or get-togethers!

I received this book through the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
