As the sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton is in an unenviable situation. In many ways, she cannot win and it is unfortunate that to some, she will always be known as the only maid of honor to ever wear a flattering dress. Never judged on her own efforts, but on the media and public perception of her. Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, is her attempt to change that.

Given her low profile prior to the royal wedding, Celebrate could be viewed as a premature effort. However, she's not the first person to jump on the bandwagon of her own notoriety nor will she be the last. To Pippa's credit, she acknowledges this in the introduction to Celebrate. She has the opportunity and she's taking advantage of it. By admitting this she makes it redundant for those who scoff at her efforts. Now who is being unoriginal?

Several reviews for this book have criticized Pippa for stating the obvious: 'ice goes great with drinks', 'a turkey at Christmas time is good for large gatherings'. Yes, it's true, but let's be honest, even Martha Stewart falls back on 'Pumpkins add to the festive atmosphere of Halloween', 'Hearts make perfect Valentines' and 'Easter egg hunts are fun'. What Pippa does add to the field is her youth. Like her sister, she makes going the extra mile fashionable. Thus giving twenty-somethings options other than beer, wine, tortilla chips and brie cheese trays for their own parties.

Divided by seasons, Pippa presents crafts, recipes, nostalgic/traditional games and charming tidbits of trivia appropriate to the occasion. She offers small glimpses into how her family marked occasions like Easter and Mothers Day.

Miss Middleton has done a FABULOUS job with this book!!!!! Her attention to detail on so many levels is extraordinary. I really enjoy the stories before the recipes, as they make it a more personalized book. Her recipes are terrific and give we in North America some new and fresh ideas with the British influence behind Pippa's choices. The photo's are wonderful. I am looking forward to trying some of the craft ideas too! Begin some new traditions in your own life by purchasing this book!!!!......you won't be sorry! Also, it's so beautifully presented you will be proud to use it as a coffee table book too!

Beautiful ideas, imagery and writing. I enjoyed this little piece of English. My Grandmother is from England and we want to incorporate English traditions into our yearly celebrations. This was a nice way for me to incorporate some ideas and remind my Grandmother of ideas past. Regardless though, it's a great party planning book. Especially summer with loads of kid party ideas and Christmas time fun.

Critics have been overly-critical of this wonderful book! It is full of lovely, creative ideas, along with some basics that come together to make a warm & inviting package. I've already used some ideas for a recent party that were inventive and cranked the party up a knotch, for sure. For my daughter's birthday I made a rainbow cake, went outdoors with some sparklers, and even had a spaghetti and marshmallow tower building competition. I love that all aspects of entertaining are considered here, including the food, the decor, and even the activities. You have everything in this book to make your gatherings with friends and family special and personal!! I would absolutely recommend this to anyone.

This is a fun and entertaining book, and helpful to any person young or old who is looking for new creative ideas for complete small event planning.
Some interesting craft ideas ,(the pompom thistles were easy and look very realistic when stuck on real twigs). The millionaire's shortbread was easy to make and a hit with the expat Scots and Brits I work with.
It has been, I believe, much maligned by the media, but is certainly an update for the times on entertaining. The background stories on how certain celebrations came about are interesting, as are the games for both children and adults.
If I have one complaint, it is that the recipes are largely measured in grams, but this is easy enough to translate, if not entirely convenient.
It is a very pretty book, and the pictures do match the crafts and foods shown when you have completed them yourself.
I bought this book for my twenty year old daughter online at Amazon.ca for Christmas and she loved it.
In my pre-Christmas reading of it I enjoyed it enough to buy one for myself, and have found it a useful addition to my myriad collection of cook and craft books.

Well designed and beautiful photos throughout. It portrayed an excellent guide of traditional British fare and typical holliday customs in Britain. Friends agreed wholeheartedly. My background is British and I really enjoyed the book cover to cover.

Well done Pippa.........I am looking forward to your next book.
