Who’s the hostess with the mostess? Pippa Middleton, evidently, who’s planning to release her debut party planning book, titled Celebrate, in October of this year.
Playing host apparently runs in the Middleton family. Carol Middleton, mom to Pippa and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, started her own party supply business, Party Pieces, when the girls were younger. The venture quickly took off and today Party Pieces is the largest party supply company in Britain. Pippa even played editor for the brand’s online magazine titled Party Time.
Pippa, who currently works as a party planner, will share her top tips on how to be the perfect hostess, with each chapter beginning with an ‘amusing anecdote.’ Fingers crossed for some Royal tidbits!
While there was a bit of a bidding war among publishers to land the book, that’s turned over to a battle of the talk show hosts: both Barbara Walters and Oprah Winfrey are reportedly battling it out to get Pippa on their couches when it comes time to promote the book.
