All That Pizzazz

Pick up some new tricks for wowing your guests from Southern blogger Courtney Whitmore.

With every party you throw, you try to top yourself. But what to do when you run out of tricks up your bell sleeve?

Turn to big deal entertaining blogger Courtney Whitmore and her newly released book Pizzazzerie: Entertain in Style: Tablescapes and Recipes for the Modern Hostess. She's in town tomorrow (see below) as part of a tour for the slick coffee table book, which serves up Southern-chic ideas to turn a dinner party, backyard picnic or book club gathering into an affair that will have your friends in an Instagram story frenzy. With talents that have gotten her on HGTV and Martha Stewart, you'll find inspired ideas like turning a bar cart into a darling display of rosé mimosas on wheels and creating a glittering New Year's Eve brunch before painting the town red. There are also table setting ideas, b-day bash how-tos and recipes. 

The RSVPs will be coming in like confetti.
