BookSparks Dinner Party Series: Desert Days

The best dinner parties share three things: good friends, great food and the feeling of never wanting it to end… oh, and the perfect book to discuss at the table!

In honor of this fall’s most anticipated book, The Dinner List by Rebecca Serle, BookSparks is inviting readers to experience some major #JOMO (joy of missing out) by grabbing your friends and staying home with the ultimate at-home pleasure: a book party. After all, is there anything better than inviting over your gal-pals for an afternoon of fun, food and book talk?

Are you as obsessed with the cactus trend as we are? Then this is the party vibe for you! Grab your best girlfriends to throw an impromptu Desert Days themed fiesta, complete with miniature cacti and piñatas.
