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.
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.
