I gave this book this holiday to five of my friends. They all loved it. One said she learned so much about the history of table decor another said she so enjoyed the beautiful pictures of different table settings yet another said she had never considered using her own collections of things for table settings the fourth liked the wide range of table settings- from breakfasts to weddings. Creativity and imagination ruled here.

I have ordered this book for several of my nieces and nephews -- it is packed with information and great tips about taking what you have and using it imaginatively. I especially loved the baby shower using the Hummel figures. So many people just keep them on a shelf covered with dust. Here, they are used with panache! Lovely ideas for weddings, dinner parties, holidays -- and some fun tips and great history . I never knew that the Queen of France may have been the inspiration for champagne glasses! Thanks to this book, I won't have to order flowers each time we entertain. I already have what I need.
