New eBook 'Unique Party Ideas'

For me, it’s all about making it easy yet creative so people get as much enjoyment from the preparations as the fun of the party itself

Easy ideas for Perfect Halloween, Bonfire Night and Thanksgiving parties all available in one eBook from all major online retailers
24th October 2012: Cherry Menlove has announced her new eBook: ‘Unique Party Ideas’ which is an inspirational yet simple-to-use guide for celebrating the best of autumn. With Halloween and Bonfire Night just days away, followed quickly by Thanksgiving, Cherry has put together an abundance of ideas to host autumnal parties with a difference. ‘Unique Party Ideas’, which is available to download now for GBP 1.99, is packed full of ways to create original Halloween and Bonfire Night crafty designs and tempting treats, as well as ways to host a traditional Thanksgiving party – whether it’s to make American friends and family feel at home, or simply a new excuse to celebrate. Full of beautiful and creative photography from Cherry’s own house and garden in West Sussex, her latest eBook is guaranteed to make your parties the talking point of the neighbourhood.

Just in time for the launch of the new Kindle Fire, the eBook is split into four sections: from the craft room; the kitchen; the home and the garden. Whether you’re looking for fun and beautiful new crafts and patterns, seasonal recipes or design ideas to use the garden and home to celebrate, Cherry has included a host of new seasonal ideas guaranteed to make people fall in love with autumn. Delicious dishes include Roasted Loin of Pork with Calvados & Apple Sauce, Cherry’s very own Spicy Apple Pie that will make the whole house smell divine and is served with homemade creamy vanilla ice-cream, as well as her Boston Baked Beans and Fondant Apples.

There are crafts including a ‘Friendly Ghost Garland’ and trick or treat bags for the kids, also brand new patterns and free downloads. Once again, Cherry fans and followers can be assured that her book has totally unique content that is not available elsewhere in print.
“We all love an excuse to have great get-togethers with friends and family to celebrate occasions during the year but sometimes need a little inspiration along the way – whether it’s delicious foodie concoctions, unique party design decorations, or new entertainment ideas to keep the party spirit alive and kicking. I’m hoping that this eBook will encourage people to host parties that are a little bit different. For me, it’s all about making it easy yet creative so people get as much enjoyment from the preparations as the fun of the party itself,” comments Cherry Menlove. “Just as Halloween celebrations are gaining popularity here in the UK, Thanksgiving is a big celebration for many of us too and with Bonfire Night also in November, it made sense to cover these three fun and festive events all in one autumnal book.”

‘Unique Party Ideas’ eBook is published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson (W&N) and can be downloaded online now from all major retailers, including Amazon, Apple, Kobo, WHSmith, Waterstones, Google Play and Hive. It is another taster of what’s to come in Cherry’s first hardback book – The Handmade Home: Inspirational Craft, Food and Flowers – due out in spring 2013 and can also be pre-ordered on Amazon and Waterstones.
