Everyday Confetti by Karen Ehman and Glyniss Whitwer

When a busy woman looks at her calendar and sees a birthday, holiday, or special occasion, she has the best intentions for bringing joy to her family and creating lasting memories. Then reality hits. Amidst demanding responsibilities and an overloaded schedule, when is she ever going to have time to plan the perfect celebration or find the creativity to make it special?

In this go-to guide, Karen Ehman and Glynnis Whitwer give women the ideas and the motivation they need to make such occasions less daunting. They provide creative ideas and menu plans for
· Holidays
· Birthdays
· Special Events
· Everyday Occasions
Readers will even find suggestions for reaching out to others throughout the year through celebrations that are simple, doable, and stress-free.

My review:
   This is a neat book, and though I am reviewing it, it is definitely geared for women. The book is separated out by seasons and every day celebrations. There is even a section for days like book lovers day.

  There are suggestions for things to do on most of the days and events, along with suggested things to make, along with the recipe for the food. There is a cupcake pictured on the cover of the book, but there are all kinds of foods in the book from chili to fruit kabobs and pie.

  The book isn't all about food. There are all kinds of ideas given throughout the book on how to make holidays more special and things to do with your kids, such as 13th birthday activities, and things for kids to do for their parents on special days.

  If you're wanting a book to help you spice up holidays, special events, and even every day events, this is a great book to have. The authors have come up with some really neat ideas, along with some great recipes.
