So begins 'Amy Vanderbilt's Hostess Guide and Party Planner'

From the Amy Vanderbilt success program for women

1964, Nelson Doubleday

48 pages, 9 x 5 softcover

This charming little booklet contains helpful information to help the modern hostess (1960's) entertain and enjoy it.

Includes: Welcoming guests
Cocktail Party
Semi formal dinners
Outdoor barbecues
Midnight suppers
Dessert and coffee
Saying goodbye
Table Decoration ideas

32 Party Diary pages to chronicle your events

The front cover features a single red rose against a soft pink background. There are some expected bumps and scuffs to cover and corners. The pages are a pale ivory from time and are clean and unmarked. The spine is intact,though beginning to separate on the surface.

Perhaps laminating would be in order to prevent further wear to the outside.

A charming vintage volume. This would be lovely as part of a vintage bridal shower or house warming gift.

"After all the purpose of your party is pleasure - for you and your guests"
