With its charming retro package, this book teaches readers how to host the most fabulous dinner parties, holiday meals, and weddings. Originally published in 1941, it was hailed in the original flap copy as "neither a cookbook nor a book of etiquette, but a vivacious and inspiring book on home entertaining."
