its a BIG announcement day!!! i am SO SO SOOOooooo happy to finally share with you a project i have been working on for the last year! it is finally here and ready to purchase: my second book —
PARTY FOOD FOR GIRLS!
the journey of this book started back in january of 2013… i had just finished writing the manuscript for Gourmet French Macarons and was so relieved to have finished my first book! although Macarons was not set to release until august of 2013, i was looking forward to a few months of blogging and getting life back to normal….until i got a call from the publisher. we talked about ideas and my mind started racing again with recipes, styling ideas, photo set ups… and just like that i was back into book mode. i completed Party Food for Girls in april of 2013. what is CRAZY now that i look back is that i had written and photographed my second book before i ever even saw and held the first one! two books completed before ever witnessing in person what all that work was going toward… so needless to say this wednesday was a wonderful day!!! to actually hold this book in my hands and turn the pages breathing in all of the work and creativity that went into each page and recipe… it was completely overwhelming. i shared my experience with the first time i held Macarons and i’m happy to report that this time i was much easier on myself. i loved it from the moment i saw it. i mean it has GLITTER on the cover people. glitter. its so pink and cute and girly! i love it. i also love that as soon as i ripped the box open my daughter and son were by my side oohhing and ahhhing over it! it was so special to see my daughter open the first page and see a picture of herself in the book! she smiled from ear to ear and shouted ‘mom! this book has me in it! and it says my name!’ my son who is 3 opened the copy he was holding and said ‘aubrey you are in mine too!’ it was so special to have them there with me in that moment! and i am so anxious for my hubby to see it when we get to see him next!
okay so here is a bit more about the book – its all about girly party food! its perfect for any event from a little girls birthday party to a teenager sleepover to a bridal shower, baby shower, or just a girls night out! girls and women of all ages will find recipes and styling ideas to make their recipes adorable through a few simple tricks and creative ideas. i’ll show you how to create and style over 80 fabulous recipes, such as Caprese Skewers, Baked Sweet Potato Skins, Cake Batter Popcorn, and Sugar Cookie Fruit Tarts. delicious recipes, snazzy styling ideas, and inventive suggestions for party preparation and activities, Party Food for Girls will make your party planning a snap. and i CAN’T WAIT for you to look through it!
