  • Celebrate Pippa Middleton style with party tips for every occasion

    First known for being Kate Middleton’s little sister, Pippa Middleton is poised to step into the limelight for a venture of her own.

    The royal-in-law famous for her ‘shapely’ bum, has struck a six-figure deal with publisher Penguin to launch her own party-planning book designed to be a ‘comprehensive guide to home entertaining’.

    The book, titled Celebrate: A Year of Festivals for Families and Friends includes recipe ideas for every occasion throughout the British Calendar, as well as crafts, games and tips on entertainment.

    Pippa explains: ‘I hope you will see this as a feel-good book with ideas to look forward to each month, providing threads of lasting, happy memories, be it around a table lit with candles in winter, outside on a rug in summer or in the autumn, perched on a leaf-covered bench, hot drink in hand.’

    Although it may appear to be a typically ‘girly’ book, if the cover is anything to go by the male population won’t be complaining, featuring various photos of Pippa herself.

    It’s thought the book could net the younger Middleton sister – who works part-time for her parents’ online company Party Pieces – more than £1 million in sales and spin-off projects.

    Perhaps Pippa is taking a leaf out of her parents’ book, with their party-planning business ‘Party Pieces’ seeing a surge in popularity after the Royal Wedding.

    Celebrate: A Year of Festivals for Families and Friends hits shelves on 25 October, priced at £25.

    Now you too can celebrate like a Princess! (Well sort of…)
