How to become a cocktail party siren and take your social life by storm! Bon vivant Babe Scott - otherwise known as The Lazy Hostess - wants to introduce all you domestically challenged divas to the world of no-fuss, come-hither hospitality. She will show you how to seamlessly throw together stress-free soirees that your friends will be chattering about for years! With her tongue firmly in her cheek, Babe lays out on a platter everything you need to know to entertain like a queen without emptying your wallet, including: recipes for easy-to-shake signature cocktails; decadent hors d'oeuvres that are devilishly simple to make; and hundreds of tips, from how to spruce up your abode to preparing for an after-party guest who might stay the night. You will even find out how to get rid of those lingering guests who have overstayed their welcome. In fact, the only thing this book doesn't do is the washing up!
