Leave your preconceptions at the door: this is a coffee table book with a twist – and one you’ll actually use! In Sophistication Is Overrated, you’ll find delicious recipes as well as tips and tricks for truly unforgettable, and ridiculous, entertaining. Written by Babs Horner, a gourmet caterer, and her sister Susan Palma, an interior decorator – better known as the Slageter sisters – the book is a testimony to both refinement and fun. In it, you can learn to make your party “So Chic” with elegant crafts and décor, or go “So Slageter” with rubber chickens, wacky costumes, blow-up dolls and a healthy dose of humor. Whether you’re planning an anniversary, Mardi Gras, or a child’s birthday, Babs and Susan know how to bring the goods. At the heart of all the shenanigans, however, are Babs’s gourmet recipes, which are big on flavor, light on butter, and sure to please at any occasion. Along with these, you’ll find unique arrangement insights from Susan and her years of decorating experience. So stick your tongue firmly in your cheek and learn to entertain the Slageter way: with humor, heart, and above all, delicious food.

From the Inside Flap:

When Babs hosts a dinner party, the food is beyond amazing; however, you are likely to feast off of paper plates, plastic utensils in hand. Sue Sue, on the other hand, will leave you speechless with gorgeous tablescapes and surprises behind every corner, but nothing to eat. Together, they throw the most spectacular parties. Something to note before going any further: the Slageter sisters, Sue Sue and Babs, will do anything for a laugh. ANYTHING! They have a delightfully twisted sense of humor that at times may shock, but always leaves their friends and family in stitches. Thus, each classic theme is followed by “The Slageter Way.”

About the Author:

The nuns would not approve of any bragging, but...Babs Horner is a successful gourmet caterer of Absolutely Babulous and a needlepoint entrepreneur with It's A Stitch. She lives with her husband Jack in New Canaan, Connecticut, and has two daughters. Susan (''Sue Sue'') Palma is a nationally and locally published decorator, owner of Susan Palma Interiors, and co-owner of The Design Girls with Muffin Lemak. She lives in Dallas, Texas, with her husband Gene and has two sons. The sisters are not socialites but fauxcialites who have planned and directed numerous charity events. These have included galas, a luncheon for one thousand, a black-tie comedy night, Festival of Trees and Deck the Hall seasonal events, various school carnivals, and auctions from coast to coast. Both have had repeat clients for twenty-five years. In addition, they are both addicted to Pinterest and are proud members of the clubs Fruit of the Month and Costco.
