Relive a time of grace and elegance with this facsimile edition of Good Housekeeping's 1904 hostess manual. With all the original illustrations, it is far more than just a charming door into the past. Thoughtful behavior has never gone out of style, and the advice on everything from organizing a formal event to celebrating a wedding anniversary to writing sympathy cards will prove useful. And, of course, no magazine equals Good Housekeeping for offering scrumptious recipes and original entertaining suggestions. Here are complete menus, seating plans, decorating ideas, and games for a wide variety of social gatherings and parties: weddings and christenings; a children's Winter Picnic to enjoy indoors; a Curiosity Tea (where guests bring a "curiosity"); a Hayseed Carnival (with wedges of apple pie, milk, doughnuts, cider, and gingerbread), and many other holiday festivities. With this guide at your side, you'll be the hostess with the mostest!show more
