Party Basics for New Nesters

party basics for new nesters

This visually appealing book might be called Party Basics for New Nesters – but it’s full of great ideas and entertaining inspiration that should apply to pretty much anyone…even if you’ve already been a “nester” for quite a while! Author Maria McBride offers tips and instructions for creative, yet doable party decorations, crafty projects, and clever food & drink ideas.

A few favorites pictured below: Crudités served in votive holders, Canned Daisies, Origami Parasols, and Egg Salad served in eggshell cups…

I’m also loving all these wonderful ideas for personalizing & dressing up basic glass votives; the transparent vinyl stickers (2nd row, far right) are an easy, yet elegant look for weddings and bridal showers…
