Information
Rachel Ashwell uses her signature style to make any event a special occasion.

This beautiful, accessible book proves that entertaining need not be expensive. Making every day into an elegant extravaganza is a matter of inspiration and imagination, and shopping is a great way to get inspired.

Travel with Rachel to unique locations like a Chinese grocery store, local antique mall, a flower market or a flea market to search for the perfect accents that will give your event unexpected charm without breaking the bank. Use the treasures you find to jazz up average items - sometimes it's as easy as adding a little paint, ribbons, or flowers. Decorate the chairs, create a themed meal, or custom-design menus and placecards.

When it comes to setting a scene, Rachel is an expert, and with her easy how-to advice, you can be too. She has practical ideas for any occasion - baby showers to weddings, birthday parties to bar mitzvahs, even old- fashioned family dinners.

From the Cuban- influenced Shabby Chic decor at Jennifer Lopez's restaurant, Madre's, to a blue-themed birthday party for Pamela Anderson and Tommy Lee's son, Rachel shows readers that no matter how small or large the crowd, anyone can create the perfect Shabby Chic setting.
