A preeminent hostess and tastemaker invites you to the most chic at-home parties, with detailed descriptions for invitations, flowers, table settings, linens, and more than eighty original recipes. Veranda calls Danielle Rollins a "genuine expert—a natural-born entertainer," and in her first book Rollins invites readers into her world of elegant, accomplished entertaining. Featuring events both intimate (a New Year’s Eve dinner) and grand (a fund-raiser), all fifteen parties emphasize hosting guests with grace and ease at home. The reader will learn how to create a party timeline, how invitations set the tone, and how to plan a menu and gain dozens of ideas for setting festive tables.From signature cocktails (Blood Orange Old Fashioneds, Prosecco with Popsicles) to the imaginative linens, flowers, and menus, Rollins brilliantly executes every detail. From croquet in the garden at the Gatsby Lawn Party (St. Germain Lemonade Cocktails and Victorian Iced Sorbet, with guests in period attire) to a Fall Harvest Chef’s Dinner in the Kitchen, with guests seated cozily around the kitchen island, eating Pork Chops with Stone Ground Grits, the parties are cleverly conceived, flawlessly executed, and fun.Handsomely photographed and filled with the parties of tastemakers such as Oscar de la Renta and Lela Rose plus recipes by esteemed guest chefs, Soirée is an idea-filled resource for those who love to entertain.

"This book is about creating moments that we can share and cherish. It's about making it easy on yourself when you do entertain and about spreading a little joy in life to maximize the ups and minimize the downs. I hope even reading this puts a smile on your face. It was a thrill for me to put it together. So, bon appetite and cheers for your next very own soiree!" - Danielle D RollinsAbout the Author:
Author of bestseller Soirée Entertaining with Style (Rizzoli 2012), contributing editor for Veranda, and lifestyle editor for LuxeCrush.com, Danielle Rollins is quickly becoming one of the nation's leading lifestyle experts. Mixing a dash of glamour with an approachable flair, Danielle sets the standard for Gracious Living and Stylish Entertaining™. Channeling the style of Grace Kelly, the wit of Lucille Ball, and the decorating and entertaining approach of Dorothy Draper (mixed with a little fantasy from the ever-imaginative, flamboyant Elsie de Wolfe), she inspires and encourages others to celebrate any and every opportunity to create a memory. Danielle is also the co-founder and chair of several charities and member of a number of boards whose causes are devoted to children's health and education. A native of Dallas (which explains her "go big or go home" approach to living), Rollins now makes her home in Atlanta with her three children.
