Mercedes-Benz, Jimmy Choo, Juicy Couture, Dunhill, and Cartier: these are just a few of the companies who've employed the authors of Fête Accompli! for high-profile events and publicity. Lara Shriftman and Elizabeth Harrison, principles of the public relations, special events and marketing firm Harrison & Shriftman, have produced some of the most remarkable parties ever featured in magazines like InStyle and Vogue. In Fête Accompli! they team up with champagne-circuit journalist Karen Robinovitz to create the hippest yet most practical party-planning book around, complete with celebrity tips, easy reference lists, insider resources, crowd-pleasing recipes for food and drinks from top chefs and restaurants, and much more.
Chapters range from choosing an attention-getting theme and finding the perfect location to designing a memorable invitation and remembering all the little touches that make a party fun. The authors also include a chapter of colorful case studies with photos and step-by-step ideas for recreating eight fabulous Fêtes.
