Middleton says her book is 'practical' guide

Penguin has released a visual of the front cover of Pippa Middleton’s party planning guide, Celebrate, with the author promising it will be "a useful and practical journey into British-themed occasions."

Michael Joseph will release the book in hardback on October 25th, at a price of £25.

Celebrate is an illustrated collection of tips and ideas for hosting celebrations, themed around the course of the year, with suggestions for summer picnics, Bonfire Night, and winter festivities.

Middleton, sister of the Duchess of Cambridge, said: “This book is designed to be a comprehensive guide to home entertaining, based on my experience in my family's party business, Party Pieces, and work for London-based events company, Table Talk. It is a useful and practical journey into British-themed occasions and I hope it offers welcome inspiration and ideas, most of which needn't leave you alarmingly out of pocket.” She added: “Entertaining on any scale can be stressful and daunting so this is all about finding ways to manage and enjoy the process.”

Louise Moore, Michael Joseph m.d., vowed the book would be “a truly inspiring treasure trove of fun ideas and creative suggestions for key celebrations throughout the year.”
