Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends is out Oct. 30
Want to party like a Middleton? Pippa‘s got just the thing for you.
The Duchess of Cambridge‘s sister has penned a book about party planning (her family’s business), titled Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends. PEOPLE has your first look at the front and back covers, which contain both photos of Middleton, 28, and cheery shots of various celebrations.
In the U.K. release of a similar looking book cover, Middleton stated “This book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to home entertaining, based on my experience in my family’s party business, Party Pieces, and work for London-based events company, Table Talk. It is a useful and practical journey into British-themed occasions and I hope it offers welcome inspiration and ideas, most of which needn’t leave you alarmingly out of pocket. Entertaining on any scale can be stressful and daunting so this is all about finding ways to manage and enjoy the process.”
“I hope you will see this as a feel-good book with ideas to look forward to each month, providing threads of lasting, happy memories, be it around a table lit with candles in winter, outside on a rug in summer or in the autumn, perched on a leaf-covered bench, hot drink in hand,” she added.
No one’s seen the inside of the book just yet (it will go on sale next month), but we expect Middleton’s advice to fall in line with that of The Party Times, an online party magazine that she edits for the family’s company, Party Pieces.
Back in February, The Party Times suggested the following for Valentine’s Day: “Hang some heart decorations around the room for extra kitsch-factor and drink sparkling wine or specially mixed Valentine’s cocktails.”
Viking will publish the 400-page Celebrate on Oct. 30 for a retail price of $50.
