A Spectacular Book Club with Mimosas and Mindy Kaling

Mimosas, and munchies, and Mindy Kaling! Oh my! Looking to celebrate in style at your next book club meeting? Well, get ready for gorgeous! Because this chic, book club gala takes it to the next level!

From the book club organizer, "My Book Club meets monthly to enjoy engaging book discussion, each other's company, and sips and nosh! Each month a book is assigned with a book host who leads the discussion and a house host where we meet and eat."

"When asked to host October Book Club, I knew that The Glass Box was the perfect space! And lucky for us Mikkel Paige was there to capture it all! I was really inspired by our book, Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling and wanted to style the space based on the book cover with blues, white, and gold."

"I knew guests would be impressed! While taking inspiration from the book itself, I also wanted to create a unique fall vibe with the blues."

"The blue linens and gold flatware and gold-rimmed plates and glassware were from CE Rental and floral arrangements were by Heather with Eclectic Sage."

"For added décor and DIY elements, I went to a local used bookstore to find books to spray paint gold and at the Farmer’s Market I picked up some small white pumpkins and painted the stems gold."

"Among salads in a jar, deviled eggs, a cheese and meat plate, gummy worms AKA “book worms”, a local restaurant, Sitti, made the most delicious pumpkin hummus for all to enjoy."

"In Mindy’s book, she talks about her love of cake. Sugar Euphoria created an amazing cake wrapped in sugar paper adorned with pages and the book cover from the book itself!"

A quote from the book, "I will leave you with one last piece of advice, which is: If you've got it, flaunt it. And if you don't got it? Flaunt it. 'Cause what are we even doing here if we're not flaunting it? And that, my friends, shall go on my tombstone." ― Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?
