Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) November 25, 2005
Authors Kristina “Morgan” Rose and Deandra “Brooksie” Brooks, urge holiday shoppers to give the gift of perfect parties: The Recovering Sorority Girls’ Guide to a Year’s Worth of Perfect Parties (Andrews McMeel, $14.95, April 2005).
"Are you dreading the holiday party season because your friends throw lame parties?" asked Rose.
“Then give them the holiday gift that will teach them how to do it correctly,” urged Brooks.
The Recovering Sorority Girls' Guide to a Year's Worth of Perfect Parties is a comprehensive party-planning guide that includes menus, decoration ideas, mood points and additional recommendations for taking a party from great to first-rate. With 20 complete party plans, even the novice hostess will be prepared to offer her urban tribe a sensational social calendar that spans New Year’s Eve to Easter to the Derby to Halloween and everything in between. In addition, each party plan includes a timeline, so hostesses know exactly when to execute each step of the party planning process.
“Let’s face it, life is too short and everyone is too busy, to waste your time at a party that sucks. And why should you when there’s a simple solution – give those individuals the counsel of two true party mavens. We are bona-fide sorority girls recovering the skills we learned in college to improve home entertainment for people everywhere,” explained Rose.
According to Rose and Brooks inspiration for the book centered around one basic, but fundamental belief – Greek life better prepared them for the challenges of every day living. From business to home entertaining to home economics, they believe sorority women are able to seamlessly step into the “real world” with highly developed coping skills.
“Everyone knows sorority girls throw the best parties,” stated Brooks. “And frankly, since graduating from college, I have even more reasons to party. The stress of work, family obligations, and the other ten gazillion things I’ve got going on every day make the need to relax and cut loose with friends more important than ever.”
Both Rose and Brooks are second-generation sorority girls who met at the American University through their sorority. Rose, a graduate of the Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law, practices law in Washington, DC. She and her husband live in suburban Annapolis. Brooks is employed by the Federal Aviation Administration and resides in northern Virginia. Both are passionate about home entertaining and co-host an average of ten parties a year. Despite having spent most of 2005 on a national book tour, Brooks recently hosted her signature Halloween party and Rose is planning her annual New Year’s Eve soiree.
“The choice is yours – you can either spend New Year’s at a flat hotel party waiting in line all night or you can host your very own New Martini’s Eve,” noted Rose.
“Resolve to shake the new year in with style and kiss bad parties good-bye in 2006,” concluded Brooks.
The Recovering Sorority Girls' Guide to a Year's Worth of Perfect Parties is available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, numerous independent bookstores, Amazon.com, and through Rose and Brooks’ website http://www.recoveringsororitygirls.com.
The Society of Recovering Sorority Girls is an elite organization devoted to a life less ordinary. Its founders, Kristina "Morgan" Rose and Deandra "Brooksie" Brooks firmly believe in applying many of the principles of collegiate Greek life to improve the leisure activities of young professionals everywhere. Morgan and Brooksie are the authors of The Recovering Sorority Girls’ Guide to a Year’s Worth of Perfect Parties (Andrews McMeel Publishing, 2005) and monthly contributors to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
