Hosting 101

 So I don't know about ya'll but I adore books. Cook books, magazines, coffee table books, reading books (haha reading books -like not all books are for reading?) Anyway, I always wanted to be like Belle from Beauty & the Beast and have a GIANT Library in my home someday. I mean, I even saved all of my textbooks and reading materials from college instead of selling them back so I could grow my book collection. Well the newest addition to the list is this cute little gem I found at an adorable place in Durham, NC (Parker & Otis to be exact) called: 'What's a Hostess to Do?' by Susan Spungen. Ya'll, this is the most handy little reference book for all things entertaining! Great illustrations and tutorials! It wasn't expensive and the pretty metallic gold makes it great to set out on display. You can get it here on Amazon for about $13.00.















Linking up with these lovely ladies for Tuesday Tea!

  2. I LOVE books too! I am an avid reader (about 2 books a month) & have a ridiculous cookbook collection. However, I'm really lacking in the coffee table / hosting books. This one looks awesome! You definitely should put a massive library in your house; that would be amazing!
