In her follow-up to Pret-a-Party, fashion designer Lela Rose takes the party outdoors, sharing tips and inspiration on hosting more than a dozen fun and festive gatherings.

Lela Rose is the ultimate party girl. In her second entertaining book, she is back with advice on giving stylish parties outside, filled with ideas for beautiful table settings, flower arrangements, and specialty cocktails and canapes.

The parties featured are inspired by places that matter to Lela-her childhood home in Texas, her favorite vacation retreat in Jackson Hole, and her home base in New York City-but their concepts easily travel, from a sundowner cocktail hour to a party celebrating local cheeses.

There are stylish bird-watching excursions and a wildflower-gathering expedition under the big sky of Texas. The glory of the Tetons serves as a backdrop for a glamorous bonfire, and there is a beautifully choreographed dinner with a lunar theme on a Manhattan terrace. These and many more unique parties showcase Lela's creative flair with dozens of tips and takeaways. From always choosing a specialty cocktail to picking a pretty dress to match the theme of the party, this book shows the importance of celebrating life's everyday moments with the people who matter most.


"This of course is no coincidence, as Lela Rose has also launched her second book Fresh Air Affairs: Entertaining with Style in the Great Outdoors. As the title would denote, the book is guide to entertaining in the great outdoors, with tips for crafting specialty cocktails, as well as ideas for excursions and carefully curated gatherings. Entertaining according to Lela is where elegance meets simplicity. It can be distilled down to this advice: set the tone with a signature cocktail and a smile." - TOWN COUNTRY
