Preston Bailey's Design for Entertaining by Preston Bailey

Book Description

Preston Bailey's DESIGN FOR ENTERTAINING is a sourcebook of inspiration and ideas for envisioning and creating the perfect ambiance for any major party or event. In an engaging, clearly written text peppered with examples and tips, Bailey guides the reader through the process of planning a party with his 'total decor concept' that brings all the elements of a party together to create a singular environment. Beginning with large decisions such as picking the theme, creating the mood and transforming the space to fit the vision for the event, it moves on to the details - flowers, lighting, table settings - that help promote the theme or enhance a mood. Throughout the book are fill-colour photos of events - including Melissa Rivers' wedding and the launch party for Oprah's 'O' Magazine - that put this approach into action. Bailey's background is in floral design and many of his most dramatic arrangements are featured on these pages. Alongside these magnifdicent creations there are tips on how to adapt the same principles to a more intimate scale or lower budget. Above all Bailey encourages anyone planning a party to allow their creativity to blossom and have fun while designing their dream event.
