Summary "A fresh guide to entertaining, with a focus on tabletop and floral design, from celebrity event designer DeJuan Stroud. DeJuan Stroud is known for elegant weddings, celebrity events, and movie premieres, but his dream is to inspire and encourage everyone to bring flowers and beauty into their lives in an effortless way. In his first book, he presents seventeen at-home celebrations featuring spectacular tabletops, glorious centerpieces, and simple how-to floral projects. The party themes range widely from a Venetian-inspired birthday dinner party with dramatic ribbon poles to Christmas in the country using fruits, spices, and herbs, but each one emphasizes the joy of celebrating life's day-to-day occasions. From conquering flower "stem fear" to learning how to map a table, Stroud demystifies the art of the tabletop, emphasizing above all his love of flowers, from the humble to the exotic. Readers will be inspired to create striking arrangements, set a beautiful table, and create decor for simple or grand occasions."--provided by
