I thought this book had some great suggestions -- not all of them are for me (like ironing sheets), but I thought the ideas were very fun. I enjoy Kate Spade's classic, timeless elegance from her handbags to her books. At any rate, the book is beautiful and gives a myraid of ideas for entertaining.

For the remaining 99.9% of us who like to entertain and who don't have their own florist, chef, maid, and bellman - it contains a lot of meaningless and impertinent suggestions. 'For the guest room... freshly ironed white sheets....cloth napkins over paper any day of the week...whenever I'm having a party, I explain to a caterer that I think the food should be filling....' $20.00 retail is entirely too much even if you do find her advice humorous...
