Perfect Table Settings book by Denise Vivaldo. The book that was sent to me has a different cover design, but is the same book.
An easy guide to the art of napkin folding and creating beautiful table settings from a seasoned professional.
This comprehensive do-it-yourself guide is fun and demonstrates in great detail the art of easy and elegant napkin folding. The author also provides festive, imaginative and inexpensive table decor ideas, featuring everything from favors and linens to centerpieces — she even shows readers how to create the perfect buffet setting.
From the casual to the elegant, more than 250 full-color photographs illustrate napkin folding how-tos and place-setting ideas. All the projects are graded for beginners, intermediates or advanced, providing a myriad of ways for all readers to express their creativity.
The book is divided into four parts:
Denise Vivaldo is a seasoned food professional who has catered more than 10,000 parties. She founded Food Fanatics, a catering, recipe development and food-styling firm that has catered the Academy Awards, the Governor’s Ball as well as many Hollywood wrap parties. She has written seven other books and lives in Los Angeles, California.
Here’s a sample page from the book – I think this would be perfect for Christmas dinner, I’d put an ornament as a party favor for the guests instead of the gold star.
Congratulations to our winner(s)!
