I am one of those moms who love to have people over.  Lately, I have been a bit lazy about having people over with the children at home.  Let’s admit it entertaining is a lot of work, but it is so much fun though. What I love the most, besides the great company and time you have with your friends or family, is all the planning and preparation.

Book Buzz: Great Get-Togethers: Casual Gatherings and Elegant Parties at Home


I always consult books for decorative ideas, menu tips and etiquette.  This time I just found out about a great book by Emily Post called Great Get Togethers: Casual Gatherings and Elegant Parties at Home.

In Emily Post’s Great Get-Togethers, Anna Post and Lizzie Post show readers exactly how to host a successful gathering of any size
— enjoyably and effortlessly – sweet! Just what busy moms need!

Because times have changed, and social etiquette seems to have relaxed a bit and gatherings taken a little twist, Emily Post’s Great Get-Togethers takes a modern look at social gatherings.  Great Get-Togethers is full of original ideas and troubleshooting tips to make any celebration spectacular! For example,

  • How to deal with guests on particular diets (vegetarian/vegan) – this is always a hard one for me!
  • How long to hold dinner if a guest is late – love this one!
  • What to do if a guest is rude or intoxicated.
  • The importance of ambiance

The book is filled with great enlightening tips that will give you that helping hand when you most need it! The book is available online via Amazon.com.

Happy entertaining!

About The Author

My real job in life is raising my 3 kids and having a nice, healthy and active family life. Along the way, I realized that motherhood didn’t come with a manual and frequently asked questions so I had to learn my way through with the help and advice of other mothers and that is how I decided to start a blog about tips for busy moms, The Moms Buzz, a lifestyle blog about only the buzz that matters. Modern moms are busy busy, and whatever tips make our lives easier we are ready to try them, we don’t have the time to read and read lengthy advices, but we can certainly read 1-2-3-SOLVED. Adriana is also the founder of ModaPreviewInternational.com and an established fashion/portrait photographer.
