Pippa Middleton gets ready to 'Celebrate' at Thursday's launch party

25 OCTOBER 2012

Thursday marks the launch of Pippa Middleton's first book, Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends, her "feel-good" guide to simple and creative home entertaining.

And to celebrate in true Pippa-style, this evening on Fulham Road there will be a private launch party to thank all those involved in the publication, including close friends and family.

Pippa's nearest and dearest in particular have inspired the 29-year-old to divulge her memories on tradition and ritual in the family home with a myriad of party tips and tricks for British-themed occasions.

Her editor Louise Moore, Managing Director of Michael Joseph said:

"Pippa Middleton's Celebrate is a truly inspiring treasure trove of fun ideas and creative suggestions for key celebrations throughout the year. We are delighted to be her publishers and to have worked with her on this milestone publication."

Halloween in particular is said to have sparked many fond memories for the Duchess of Cambridge' younger sister who has declared that during this time "your home should look the part on the outside to greet your guests and any passing spooks and spirits".


Here are just a few of Pippa's tips for tricks and treats this Halloween:

• Decorate your windows with stained glass bats
.
• String outdoor fairy lights around trees and shrubs, and light the pathway with a few paper lanterns

Create a few mournful ghosts to float around for a spooky atmosphere: simply blow up white balloons, tie each one to a bamboo cane and drape a white sheet over it. Fix the neck with string and use a clack marker to draw a ghoulsome face

The young author admits with modesty that she simply hopes her new book will offer "inspiration and ideas" for its readers and provide "threads of lasting, happy memories, be it around a table lit with candles in winter, outside on a rug in summer or in the autumn, perched on a leaf-covered bench, hot drink in hand".
