A Great Party: Designing the Perfect Celebration BRYAN RAFANELLI; FOREWORD BY CHELSEA CLINTON Rizzoli New York Formulating the right mix of ingredients to create the kind of party that goes off with a bang—one where people flirt, drink too much champagne and say, “OMG! Is that the time?”—is a complex recipe that we have been debating for centuries.

‘tis the season for coffee

For its holiday season offerings, the Swiss brand Nespresso looked to its neighbours for inspiration. Embracing two concepts—Hygge (a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality from the Danes) and Fika (a social institution built around the sharing of a cup of coffee from the Swedes)—Nespresso designed a line of limited-edition coffee products that encourages everyone to pause awhile to connect with friends and family.
