I was recently invited to Tori Spelling’s book launch party of celebraTORI and I couldn’t turn it down. After all, I’ve spent more hours than I can count watching Beverly Hills, 90210 and obsessing over what I would call the best show of all time.  So for that reason alone I felt the need to attend this event. Not to mention, I thought that her book could actually be good. Tori is not only such a sweetheart but a great author!

Tori Spelling is the #1 New York Times best selling author of sTORI telling, Mommywood and unchartered territory, and the star and executive producer of Oxygen’s hit reality series Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood and Tori & Dean:sTORIbook weddings, with her husband Dean McDermott.

celebraTORI is Tori’s most recent venture. The book is all about party planning and throwing a great event. She provides tons of tips and tricks for throwing a great party. Tori covers all the basics from choosing a concept, decorating, creating flower arrangements, making refreshments, and building the cornerstone of any great party: the dessert table! Tori prides herself on the “details” and attributes a party’s success to just that—making sure no stone is left unturned. Being such a detail oriented person myself I could really appreciate this aspect of the book. She gives great tips from early on in the planning process through the actual party itself, from different themes, to invitations, décor, and favors. Tori provides instructions on how to implement a lot of these ideas on your own and on a budget. Whether you are planning a small or large event, each of these ideas can be incorporated into any event. Ever since my son was born I have loved throwing such fun birthday parties and always pay such close attention to the details so I can definitely relate to Tori’s ideas and will use them going forward in my party planning adventures. Kuddos Tori on a job well done!!
