9780743442787: The Swell Dressed Party

The bestselling authors of "Swell: A Girl's Guide to the Good Life, Home Swell Home: Designing Your Dream Pad," and "Swell Holiday: Turning Up the Twinkle" have delighted readers with their groundbreaking manuals on style and decor. Now Cynthia Rowley and Ilene Rosenzweig bring you The Swell Dress Party, a bubbly bible for the modern hostess.

With their fun-loving spirit and entertaining expertise, they serve up ideas for memorable affairs that are easy to execute, don't leave you exhausted, and allow you to achieve the ultimate hostess goal -- to be a guest at your own party.

This day-to-night guide brings a much-needed dose of realism to fabulous entertaining. The confident hostess makes the most of what she's got, mixing homemade with store-bought, pairing her best crystal flutes with last minute Polaroid placecards, and knowing it's important to keep the conversation as sparkling as the champagne.

"Part Dressing" is a new approach to great entertaining that relies on playfulness, not perfectionism. Over twenty parties in this book combine recipes that deliver wow factor without requiring a culinary PH.D., and anecdotes from Rowley and Rosenzweig's party career. They show how to bring friends and family together for high-style good times without spending an obscene amout of time or blowing a wad of dough.

The Swell motto is: "Minimize effort and maximize fun," Great hostessing is about setting a mood as much as making sure people get enough to eat and drink. A Swell party is like the perfect black dress glammed up with little accessories that make a big impact.

- Double-duty favors that bring an activity to the party, like sketchbooks and charcoals at everyy placesetting.

- Iced gel-eye masks and Tylenol for a Hangover Brunch.

- Filling the pool with blow-up ducks as an aquatic centerpiece.

- The No-Time-for-Dinner Party, ordering in every course, from MacDonald's fries to steakhouse sirloins, and making an event of every delivery.

- Turning Games Night or Must-See TV into a weekly ritual of three-martini playdates.

- Keeping the cupboard stocked for chic-and-easy bar snack and canapes for the impromptu cocktails.
