The parties featured are inspired by places that matter to Lela—her childhood home in Texas, her favorite vacation retreat in Jackson Hole, and her home base in New York City—but their concepts easily travel, from a sundowner cocktail hour to a party celebrating local cheeses. There are stylish bird-watching excursions and a wildflower-gathering expedition under the big sky of Texas. The glory of the Tetons serves as a backdrop for a glamorous bonfire, and there is a beautifully choreographed dinner with a lunar theme on a Manhattan terrace. These and many more unique parties showcase Lela’s creative flair with dozens of tips and takeaways. From always choosing a specialty cocktail to picking a pretty dress to match the theme of the party, this book shows the importance of celebrating life’s everyday moments with the people who matter most.
