This review is from: Guests Without Grief: Entertaining Made Easy for the Hesitant Host (Paperback) I purchased this book on
the way to a diplomatic assignment. It offers a wide variety of useful and entertaining information. I often give to new brides and
recommend it to experienced friends who want to entertain more. It covers a range from parties in the home to welcoming house
guests. The friendly easy way it is writen inspires confidence in the new hostess and encourages experimentation for the more
experienced party giver. It is a smart addition to any library and a great gift.

Bridget Jones) or the cat licked all the salt off of the mixed nuts. Serve enough alcohol, and they won't even notice.Paula also

refer to it whenever I'm planning something. It never...
