A native of Panama, Preston Bailey arrived in Manhattan in the early 1970s. He began his career in floral design after working as a model and retail clothing proprietor. His eye for elegantly dramatic statement in total event décor has made Bailey a favorite among celebrities and arbiters of taste.
A party planner to the stars offers guidance to the earthbound on creating the perfect celebration, from designing the ideal lighting to choosing the best floral arrangements. Lavishly photographed by Roger Dong and Alex Kirkbride, this book gives readers glimpses into Matt Lauer's red-themed wedding reception and the sumptuous anniversary party for Oprah's magazine, O-content that's fun for brides-to-be and celebrity voyeurs alike. While it's unlikely that many of Bailey's readers will have the resources to plant atmospheric rows of 20-foot birch trees (as Joan Rivers did for the wedding of her daughter, Melissa), there are simpler, more down-to-earth tips to be found in this book: the pictures may feature the stupendously lavish, but the text offers tips for somewhat smaller budgets. Both reassuring and inspiring, Bailey details ways to maximize party space, outlines the divergent effects of candlelight and electric light, gives useful suggestions for designing an event to please both adult and teenage guests and provides pointers on selecting appropriate chairs, tablecloths and silverware. "Look at each decision as an opportunity to do things in your own way," Bailey urges. His helpful guide will help party planners do just that. 150 color photographs.

Preston Bailey s DESIGN FOR ENTERTAINING is a sourcebook of inspiration and ideas for envisioning and creating the perfect ambiance for any major party or event. In an engaging, clearly written text peppered with examples and tips, Bailey guides the reader through the process of planning a party with his total decor concept that brings all the elements of a party together to create a singular environment. Beginning with large decisions such as picking the theme, creating the mood and transforming the space to fit the vision for the event, it moves on to the details - flowers, lighting, table settings - that help promote the theme or enhance a mood. Throughout the book are fill-colour photos of events - including Melissa Rivers wedding and the launch party for Oprah s O Magazine - that put this approach into action. Bailey s background is in floral design and many of his most dramatic arrangements are featured on these pages. Alongside these magnifdicent creations there are tips on how to adapt the same principles to a more intimate scale or lower budget. Above all Bailey encourages anyone planning a party to allow their creativity to blossom and have fun while designing their dream event. Codice libro della libreria BZE9780821227657
