Eduardo Xol, star designer of ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, presents an innovative guide to entertaining using all the senses.
Eduardo Xol, star designer of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition, assures readers that if a home could be built and designed in only seven days, you could prepare your own fantastic event in much less time. In Extreme Entertaining Made Simple, Eduardo takes the daunting task of hosting your own party and makes it easy and accessible. His secret is to utilize and stimulate all five senses to inspire the design, feel, mood, taste, and sound of any special celebration.
Spanning from a Classic Dinner Party to an at home Spa Party, Eduardo covers six unique and inspired party themes, which can be applied to hundreds of occasions—each with event-appropriate food and drink recipes, as well as event-specific design tips and suggestions. He breaks down the design elements of a party and shows how to assemble stunning table ensembles, decadent entrees and delicious appetizers, fragrant and eye-opening flower arrangements, and delightful tunes by simply applying your senses and intuition. As you master your senses, creating spectacular celebrations can be a fun and stress-free experience and eventually becomes second nature.
