An Invitation to Entertain

An Invitation to Entertain
Recipes for Gracious Parties

For over twenty years, the entertaining expertise of Elizabeth Stone has been at the heart of some of the most lavish parties and delightful small dinners in the South. More than a cookbook, An Invitation to Entertain is a generous and inspiring handbook for gracious hospitality. It covers every aspect of preparing delightful and memorable dinner parties, holiday meals, wedding parties and casual get-togethers. Detailed vignettes of more than two dozen parties along with over 200 recipes, pointers for selecting décor and table settings, formulas for purchasing supplies and references for delving deeper into party planning specifics provide inspiration and ensure entertaining success. Elizabeth’s trademark has always been “Your party is our privilege,” and “No Stone left Unturned.” This lavishly illustrated handbook reflects her belief that entertaining should be pleasurable and create a lasting memorable experience for guests.

“Elizabeth has found her calling. The genuine enthusiasm she has when she describes food, presentations and creating something spectacular is a quality so hard to find these days. Her designs, cooking and now her beautiful book are something to be marveled. She is a joy and a pleasure.”
