Very good, with general guidance to help you put together a nice event. Just do not expect it to be a very detailed guide. It is a pity she did not add photographs of the parties and recipes--since, according to what I read, she has practical experience in all the subjects. Some recipes sound quite intriguing and worth trying. If you like to throw parties like I do, this is a good reference guide.
