Parties are a big thing in my family. I've loved them growing up and now my littles looks forward to them every year for her birthday. Party planning for me is a several month adventure. Choosing the theme, and from there the decorations, food, guest lists, and many other little things. However, in the chaos of my brain things generally slip from thought. Then I feel panicked....very bad for a party. So, I was excited to read through Best Party Book ever! Help is a wonderful thing with parties, and this book offered quite of bit of insight and fun ideas.

What caught my attention right off the bat was the fun food ideas for each party and how they fit into the themes perfectly...and the themes were all original and fun! Everything was bright, plus there are just pages upon pages of wonderful photos to help show you. Perfect for the soon to be pre-teen to teens girl (I would gladly borrow some ideas for my next bash). It was also wonderful to see how things for the parties were divided up and made it easy for moms and daughters to work together...or allowed for the girls to plan their party on their own, with a little help from the parentals. This book also made sure to offer support and to remind everyone about that the party is for fun and time to spend with friends.

This book is a wonderful guide and helper. It is one I will be hanging onto for future references as my littles gets older.

Best Party Book Ever! is written for girls to plan parties for their friends. I found the introduction helpful as it gave tips for invitations, how to host a party, and checklists.

There was a short 3 question quiz to determine your soirée style. There were 3 questions with 4 answer options. I took it just for fun and picked a different letter from the options for each question. To get my answer, I had to go off of what letter I picked most. This didn't work well for me...

I think this book offers some great ideas for an amazing party for girls. I think it is great that it encourages young girls to host a party and to do the planning and hosting of the event. I like the numerous photos and the menu ideas, as well as crafts and activity ideas.

I was a little disappointed that they did not give a backup plan for an outdoor event in the event the weather is bad. While they encouraged the event in Spring, you could have a downpour. I think the party idea is great, but when it is called "best party book ever" I expected it to prepare me for almost anything.

The back of the book did provide some additional resources as well as a few tips for guests. I found this helpful and it would have been nice to include about the weather here as well.

Overall, I found this book to be very helpful. I like the way it is encouraging girls to host parties and giving them fun ideas for the party.

Best Party Book Ever! by Editors of Faithgirlz! and Girls' Life Mag is a fantastic resource for any hostess-with-the-mostess-in-training.

Although the claim as the "best ever" party book may be a little stretch, it really is a great resource! The photographs in this book are more magazine style than a how-to book style. The photographs are really fantastic, but not exactly helpful if you are looking for a how-to. I would have loved to have seen some diagrams or step-by-step pictures. (For example, in addition to the explanation of how to create an invitation for a specific theme, I would love to see a drawing or picture of an example invitation.)

With that said, there were a lot of things that made this book fun to look at and to read. I loved how it didn't just dive into themes and color schemes...but went over the idea of how to be a great hostess. (For example, it went beyond saying "be sure sure to introduce your guests to one another", but actually gave the suggestion to think of things your guests have in common to get them comfortable and talking to each other.)

The variety of party ideas in Best Party Book Ever! is great. This isn't just about birthdays - there are also ideas for anytime parties and holiday parties...and even a pet party.

Another fantastic part of this book is the recipe section. There are a variety of recipes for snacks, drinks, sweets, and even treats for "furry friends". Again, the photographs in this section are fantastic.

All in all, I think this is a great resource for party planning and I think it outshines other party books in the perspective of how to be a great hostess.

FTC Declaration: The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. This does not change the fact that I will give my honest opinion in my reviews. (Posted on 10/4/14)

I don't know if the title fits or not but this small paper back book sure has some great ideas in it! This book contains everything you need to know to plan fifteen great get-togethers from start to finish! I think the healthy recipes will come in really handy as the coconut water Popsicle sound super neat! The idea of healthy recipes is a great bonus. Not only are they super easy to make but they look so appealing , kids wont know the difference so they wont think they are missing out on anything!

There are some really good ideas in this book for parties such as Secret Garden , Pom, Pom party, Cookie Bake off,, Ice Cream Social, Pet party, Sprinkle Soiree, New Years Fete, and many more! Each chapter has decore ideas, invitation inspirations, craft ideas, menu and ideas to make this day extra special. At the end is a chapter full or recipes including dog biscuits, salted caramel brownies, Mint lemonade, trail mix popcorn balls, triple berry lemon muffins, and cucumber cream cheese round. Enjoy over 100 pages of fun ideas with pictures to inspire you! (Posted on 8/19/14)
