Format: Paperback
This guide to entertaining at home seems an essential resource, and it's also quite fun. It provides helpful guidance on etiquette questions, but I especially loved how practical it was. From specific ideas on hostess gifts for every occasion (dinner, a one-night visit, an entire weekend) to how to make small talk to handling awkward situations (such as when someone brings a friend to your party without letting you know in advance and you don't have quite enough food) to setting the table, etc. There are recipes, menus, and photos, which are inspiring. I enjoyed reading it through for ideas and guidance, and now it will make an excellent reference book for future entertaining at home.

I think it would make a perfect bridal shower gift or for anyone in their 20s and 30s.

Wonderful information!! I enjoyed everything... the stories about Anna & Lizzie as teenagers helping with parties, to their insights and thoughts on every aspect of "having people over." I am encouraged and excited about putting some of their wisdom to work. I am experienced at family (casual) get togethers, but I was feeling like, as I find myself with a little bit more time these days, a little insecure about moving past that. Now I am energized, validated, and thinking of so many ideas and of so much fun in the future!! I live in a farmhouse that is not very big, so I will plan accordingly. I like how their advice can apply to any budget or situation. Hurray for this book!! I highly recommend it!!

I should have returned this, it might be helpful for someone with very limited experience and very young but if one has any experience at all this would not be beneficial.
