Imagine a younger, friendlier Martha Stewart, that you can relate to and would actually want to hang out with. That’s Lauren Conrad.
In last week’s book review I gave my thoughts on Kristin Cavallari’s book, Balancing in Heels, and confessed that I had never watched an episode of The Hills. So it’s a bit ironic that this week I’m reviewing a book by another Hills alum.

Celebrate is basically a party planning book, with tips for being a perfect hostess with the mostest. She has general tips in the beginning, and then each chapter is dedicated to a different type of party that Lauren has planned.
I initially picked up Celebrate because I heard there was a chapter in it about wedding planning. I know Lauren got married recently, and I had been getting wedding planning tips from her website, so I was excited to get more from her book.
I don’t know if the wedding chapter was as helpful as I was hoping. I’m already deep into planning, but I do think her tips would be great for brides who are just staring the planning process.
For someone like me who does absolutely zero entertaining… that may change when I have my own home, but for now, nada…. I seem to have a huge collection of books about entertaining. I’ve read Martha Stewart’s book, Pippa Middleton’s, and even Tori Spelling’s (which was actually better than I expected). So I may be the most informed non-hostess ever. Basically, I think I have read enough books to safely say that I really enjoyed Lauren’s book and have it mean something.
Lauren is, well, nice. She seems sweet and genuine. You can tell she is a perfectionist, a la Martha Stewart. However, she is much more relatable. She actually makes you feel like you could pull of a party like she can (whether or not we really can is still up for debate).
So would I recommend this book?
If you’re an entertaining novice and need some help, then yes.
If you’re an entertaining pro and need some inspiration, then sure.
If you’re a Martha Stewart fan girl, who can’t handle a laid back California cool party, then probably not.
