You’re So Invited: Panic Less, Play More, and Get Your Party On! by Cheryl Najafi

From the Publisher: With summer just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about backyard parties, dinners for out of town guests, and celebrating long weekends and holidays by sharing good meals with good friends. Don’t want to throw the same barbeque with all the same predictable foods and decorations as everyone else? Let veteran hostess and author Cheryl Najafi help you do something unexpected, memorable, and fantastically fun with her new book.

I actually met Cheryl at the SNAP Conference in April. She is a beautiful and kind person and she shared openly the hard work that lead up to creating her book. With years of event planning experience, I think I liked the story about when she had Martha Stewart over for dinner the best. You can find more about Cheryl at her lifestyle blog, Cheryl Style.
