You already know what an amazing fashion designer Lela Rose is (Need proof? Take a peek at her spring collection.) but what you might not know is that Lela’s design skills don’t stop there: she’s equally as talented at hosting parties. Not just any parties, mind you. Seriously good parties. Fun fact: She has a dining table that can seat 68 in her home. That’s how much she loves to entertain. Lela is known for throwing some of the most creative and fun dinner parties – not to mention, they come with delicious food and even better cocktails. She isn’t one to stand back and let others do the work for her either. From the cooking (she’s a serious foodie who has cooked with the likes of Mario Batali and Thomas Keller in her kitchen) to the bartending to the table decor, this hostess-with-the-mostess is completely hands-on. Now, she’s sharing all of her party tricks in her new book, Prêt-a-Party: Great Ideas for Good Times and Creative Entertaining. Whether it’s gal pals over for a tequila tasting or a formal Christmas dinner, this glossy read has tips and tricks on all of it. It’s a must-have for anyone that loves to throw a good party.

In celebration of the new book, I’m hosting a cocktail party with the author herself. And you’re all invited! Come by the Lela Rose boutique in Highland Park Village from 5-7 p.m. this Friday, October 2nd for cocktails, bites, and books. With Lela involved, you already know it’s going to be a good party. I hope to see you all there!
