  11. Brenda Thomas says

    Every event I have, and I have lots, everything is homemade. Would love to have some new ideas! I love to play hostess!

  12. Hayley says

    I am definitely a handmade hostess – have an obsession of making and doing everything myself – which I often regret 10 minutes before everyone arrives! Next party is an easter lunch for my family and inlaws complete with an easter egg hunt for the kids

  13. Jeanine says

    I’d love to win the book which sounds great. I need some fresh new ideas for parties. Just had our second sparkling wine party and would love to have a theme for the third.

  14. Shari Harniss says

    Easter is coming soon and we will probably be hosting a dinner. Love to get fresh ideas about entertaining!

    I’d love to have this book. It seems that my huge family is always planning some party or other,and we could use a few new ideas.

  16. Mary Mac says

    I would gift this to my sister who is the ultimate hostess. She love to plan and give a party for my large family. I have even seen her make up holidays to do this.

  17. Anne Marie says

    This book would give me some inspiration, which I very much need. We just had a birthday party last night for our 4 year old. Lollypop theme. Great cake and lots of color. Next party might be tonight as the kids are on spring break and want to celebrate National Dentist’s Day (who knew?!) for their dad. We’ll see what we can come up with in 8 hours!

  18. Julie Henderson says

    One of us is going to be SO blessed by winning this book. I would humbly loved to be the one. Just the title even appeals to the cozy aesthetic of putting love/oneself into homekeeping. Thanks for the giveaway! Blessings – Julie H. :-)

  19. Josanne M. says

  23. says

    I grew up with a german mother who didn’t always instill the american traditions of hosting, so this would be very educational

  24. Karey says

    Wow this book is so me! I love making things whether it’s for me or to give as a gift. And I love small parties. We are planning one so for some friends to come over.

  25. laura r says

    I’m hoping to have a new home in the near future. Would love to craft a house warming party :)

  30. Diana Priebe says

    I would love this book to help plan a big year of hosting. At 50, I am thankful for the help in putting my thoughts together for planning and executing a wonderful party. I have planned so many parties in the past, this book looks like it has new and fresh ideas that I would LOVE to put into action. I am ALL about handmade and creative. thank you, and yes, please.

  31. says

    This would be lovely as I host a few parties throughout the year and something always seems to not quite gel. This would be a great lesson in continuity.

  32. says

    I love to have friends and family round for a party and as I love to craft it would be great to start incorporating that more into the parties I host.

    My next party will be a ‘girls night in’ with a posh grown up high tea & possibly some cocktails too!

  33. Dani says

    As a science nerd (and educator), the mad scientist party looks awesome! I bet everything in this book is great :)

  34. cassie says

    I’m planning our DIY At-Home-Wedding Reception… I would LOVE This for some inspiration

  35. Ann Shaffer says

    This book is really very exciting. I love the Mad Scientist party and I am excited to take the ideas and run with them. (If I win)

  36. says

    I love throwing parties and my friends always expect something amazing so what better way not to disappoint than ideas from this book. It will definitely be appreciated for upcoming BBQs and kids birthday parties.

  37. Carmen says

    My next “party” is a women’s biblical conference – where we meet in person and watch some videos with discussion. I’m nervous because I’m hosting and I don’t entertain much.

  38. says

    Oooh, I’m excited to find this giveaway…on the very last day. The title captivates me and I’m all about finding new ways to be a hostess in our home sweet home. The next party I’m planning is a summertime river raft party.

    Thank you! :)

  40. says

    Thanks for the chance to win this lovely book. I could use this book to plan family celebrations throughout the year and especially to welcome back our children who are travelling overseas.

    Happy days.

  48. says

    having my first birthday party this weekend at 60 with my twin sister. It will be a fun reference book for ideas…

  49. Brenda J. Moore says

    I’m looking forward to setting up a House-Warming Party for my Daughter and S.I.L at the home they bought last Sept. By the time they got settled-in, we seemed to have run out of time for a “house” party due to Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas etc.
    Sharing this party planning with his Mum would add to making the party real special; a book like this would be an ideal guide for her and I to get started from.
    Cheers from Oshawa Ontario.

  50. Tracey Hunton says

    I make all of my kid’s theme birthday party decorations, and they are in their. twenties. Wizard of Oz is next!

  51. Theresa says

    I would love to have this book. I am helping with the planning of several fundraising parties so this would be a big help.

  52. says

    If you’re going to have a party, it’s worth making everything special: the theme, the food, the decorations, and the guests. I love to make the guests feel special. This book is lovely! Thank you for the giveaway!

  53. Beata Fiebelkorn says

    I’d love to see all party ideas in this book! I’m all about handmade but not quite as creative to put all aspects together. I usually make yummy snacks from scratch and maybe one or two handmade decoration elements like a banner or rosettes but maybe with a little more inspiration I could do more?
