I recently attended a book signing for?Fabulous Parties: Food and Flowers for Elegant Entertaining,?where Peggy Dark of the well loved caterer, The Kitchen, graciously was autographing her book co-authored with Mark Held and Richard David of Mark’s Garden, an elegant florist in Los Angeles.
The event was held at the Karen Lynne Gallery in Beverly Hills. I must say, this beautiful book gives examples and tips on how to entertain in style. Both Mark’s Garden and the kitchen have catered to celebrity clients including Oprah Winfrey, Cher, Diane Keaton, George Clooney, Teri Hatcher, Tommy Hilfiger, Donatella Versace, and many more.?You don’t need to live in Los Angeles or to be famous to create the party themes and recipes included in the book. ?And the bonus for those mingling in the gallery – a portion of the proceeds of the book sales benefitted Aviva Family and Children’s Services, a non-profit agency providing care and treatment to abandoned, neglected, abused, and at-risk youth and families in the Los Angeles area since 1915.
