Biography

Jeanne Benedict is fast becoming a household name and face! Her popularity has been on the rise since the success of her first book, The Sophisticated Cookie, which was published by Penguin-Putnam Inc., in September 1998. She followed up with creative cookbook and lifestyle guides entitled, Sophisticated Entertaining, Pregnant For 100 Years, and Celebrations, where she met the book's co-author Jim McCann, CEO of 1(800) Flowers. She is thrilled to reconnect with Mr. McCann as part of Celebrations.com, and looks forward to sharing fresh and imaginative party ideas each week with the online community.

Many TV viewers know Ms. Benedict as the host/designer of the theme party show, Weekend Entertaining, on the DIY network. She has also made over 100 appearances as a lifestyle/party expert and chef on shows such as ABC's Live with Regis & Kelly, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The CBS Saturday Early Show, and more.

Some of Jeanne Benedict's national promotional partnerships have been with Country Crock Deluxe Side Dishes (2007), where she offered website video tips for get-togethers, and participated in media tours. For Prilosec OTC (Super Bowl 2004, 2007 and 2008), she scored big with sports fans as the home-tailgating expert in various campaigns, one of which included football legend and CBS sports analyst Phil Simms, and country music star Clint Black. And, in Spring 2005, she was a spokesperson for Michael's Arts & Crafts, as well as Future Foods. Other ventures have been with RIT Dye and C&H Sugar where her fun video, "Gingerbread House Party" was offered on 6,000,000 sugar boxes.

Ms. Benedict's introduction to the LA party circuit was in 1991 as an event coordinator for high-power political and social functions, including fund-raisers for Senator Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, and The Human Rights Campaign Casino Nights hosted by Joan Rivers. Simultaneously, she apprenticed at Somerset Caterers where she gained her knowledge of cuisine and party design. Soon after, she began her own production/catering company, Ice Entertainment, specializing in inventive theme parties from food to decor. She lives in Los Angeles with her college sweetheart husband and 2 children.
