I was not expecting to absolutely adore this book. ADORE. I didn’t just like it because of what it’s about but for a range of different things.

– Layout
I love the layout. It was really attractive and looks professional. There are some really nice, bright colours used, that are perfect for not only maintaining an 8-14 year old girl’s attention but that of a person any age.

– Ideas
This point covers a lot of cool stuff. Whether it’s invitations, themes for parties or even party favours, this book has you covered. Even if it’s just little things in terms of presentation, these tips go a long way.

– It made me want to plan a party
I’d bereading this and imagining hosting these parties and coming up with my own ideas and it really made me want to host one of my own. Go on, I CHALLENGE you to read this book and not want to host a party.

– It was pretty inspiring
Like I mentioned before, there are themes, pretty pictures, food recipes and menus, this book will just fill your head with great ideas.

– Helpful
This is a MUST have for parties. It has you covered in every way. Food, cleaning up messes, decorations, catering with your budget… Very helpful and nice to look at.

I’d recommend this to both children and adults thinking of hosting a party (really for ages 8-14). It might even give parents hosting their own themed parties some ideas. I loved this book just to read!

 5/5 stars!
