Almost everyone loves to entertain (or is obligated to), whether it’s just a family gathering, or a group of friends. It often means lots of planning, decorating, and cooking. Maria Provenzano, television personality and blogger, presents suggestions to take the stress out of entertaining with fun ideas to make your celebrations not only fun, but unique and individualized in her book, Everyday Celebrations from Scratch . This book is full of crafting ideas and mouthwatering recipes that are designed to make any day a celebration. Provenzano has included pantry and craft lists so that anyone can add a little pizzazz to their celebrations without having to do a lot of shopping. Some of her ideas are geared toward families and children; others are for adult parties complete with cocktails.

There are step-by-step instructions for the DIY crafts, and the recipes are written in the traditional form so that they are easy to follow; they are also mostly easy, so anyone can successfully make picture-perfect dishes along with fun crafts. There are dozens of beautiful photographs of the crafts and dishes (maybe a few too many of her cute children, but since she’s the author, that should her prerogative as a Mom).

The book is organized according to different celebrations complete with crafts and recipes for that particular celebration. It’s different, but it works well, and will inspire dozens of ideas. One of the best things about this book is the fact that she emphasizes over and over that it doesn’t have to be a holiday to celebrate. In fact, it’s actually more fun to celebrate when the day isn’t particularly special; it makes life fun and there is always something to look forward to.

All told, this is a very fun book; it has something for everyone and great ideas for celebrating almost everything.
