    • Author: Allana Baroni
    • Binding: Hardcover
    • Price: $16.95

    Cocktail parties are a great way to cut loose and flirt with abandon, and nothing gets everyone mixing and mingling better than great drinks and an upbeat, unforgettable atmosphere. Flirtini is filled with a veteran party plannerÂ?s creative ideas for throwing a fabulous bash. From a Dr. Bombay party to cure what ails you to a graffiti bash for self-expression, Flirtini has plenty of great excuses to mix it up.

    Each theme party starts with a house specialty drink and continues with ideas for shouting out the invites, decking out the bash shack, an inspired soundtrack, and ice-breakers to get the party going. An Â?unbirthdayÂ? party in honor of a friend who needs an ego boost has a mad tea party twist. A film festival costume party can go glam for the Oscars, urban for Tribeca, or ski grunge for a Sundance theme. A jazz-inspired after-dinner affair can turn your apartment into a sultry hot spot with coffee-flavored cocktails, slow dancing, and fortune telling.

    More than chic drinks and a clever party theme, though, the right attitude is the key to hosting a successful party. So Flirtini includes plenty of spirited advice on how to greet, mingle, and flirt with confidence to spare. From compiling a cross-pollinated guest list to improvising triumphant solutions for inevitable party snafus, Flirtini is the perfect recipe for mixing up killer cocktail parties.
