I'm not sure who liked this book more...me or my ten year old! This isn't a children's book by any means, (there are 20 pages of tantalising cocktail recipes to prove that!) but the illustrations and ideas are understandably as appealing to pre-teens as they are to their Mums!

'Girls' Night In' is a beautiful book, Hannah Read-Baldrey's style is evident in every single page. The book is crammed full of delicious recipes and inventive crafts. Some of the crafts would probably be wasted on one of my girls' nights in ;-P but may translate well into other events such as parties, dinners and even wedding but many are really ingenious and so beautiful that I will be making them as soon as possible.

Aswell as recipes, crafts and cocktails, the book includes make up tips, pampering treats and game suggestions. These are all really good ideas as you can make them suit your group of girls: their age, their personalities and where you know them from!! You wouldn't necessarily want to play the same games with your work colleagues as you would with your old school friends!

All in all I think this is a brilliant book for your own bookshelf or as a gift for someone else's. It fantastic to have a book that embraces the 'night in' and seeks to make it a real occasion, especially in an economy when we are all having to be a little more conservative with our nights out.

Love Rachel

This book helps you have a great night in for a fraction of the cost of a night out. Packed with brilliant ideas, there's plenty to suit everybody.
Apart from a glue gun and a local bead/haberdashery shop you hardly need any specialist equipment which I often find a big bane in other books.
Instructions are clear & the ideas are very adaptable, they'd be great for a hen do or for making DIY Christmas or Birthday presents.
Definitely recommended.

Fab book! I bought it initially for the craft projects but used the book this weekend to host a party with my mum, sister and cousin and it was great fun. Really clear ideas and great photos. Definitely recommended.

This is book is simply fabulous and contains such an eclectic mix of ideas that there is something for everyone to enjoy on a girls night in from gorgeous crafting ideas to beautiful food and cocktails. I have sampled several of the recipes and they are absolutely delicious and also not too complicated and off putting to make which makes them all the more appealing, particularly if you have a larger group of people to cater for. In these economically challenging times this is such a great way to have a brilliant evening in on a budget. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Excellent first 'solo' book from Hannah. Everything Alice and Everything Oz (joint ventures) were both wonderful but this takes things to the next level. No stone left unturned. A great wealth of ideas from planning your night in, decor, food, drinks and party bags to makeup and fashion accessories, all with great photos and clear easy to follow instructions...even for someone who finds the thought of holding a party daunting,.... like me! I think I might even have a go.

I bought this for my wife and she loves it, full of great ideas and not just craft, some good recipes too. I've already sampled a few of the dishes and they don't disappoint. A great gift for the women in your life, young or old!
