Designing Life's Celebrations is a fresh guide to entertaining, with a focus on tabletop and floral design, from celebrity event planner Dejuan Stroud. In this book, event planner Dejuan Stroud presents seventeen at-home celebrations featuring spectacular tabletops, glorious centerpieces, and simple how-to floral projects. The party themes range widely from a Venetian-inspired birthday dinner party with dramatic ribbon poles to Christmas in the country using fruits, spices, and edible arrangements, but each one emphasizes the joy of celebrating life's day-to-day occasions. From conquering flower "stem fear" to learning how to map a table, Stroud demystifies the art of the tabletop, emphasizing above all his love for flowers, from the humble to the exotic. Readers will be inspired to create striking arrangements, set a beautiful table, and create décor for simple or grand occasions.
