Book cover of The Art of Entertaining
The Art of Entertaining is the perfect book for social planning. With sections on decor, food, and modern manners, among others, nothing is left up to ambiguity or chance. Since hospitality often requires anticipating guests’ needs and wants, Fleming provides a framework for success by drawing upon decades of experience as a host, guest, and event manager for a corporation arranging large scale events for thousands of employees.
This roadmap to a fantastic gathering provides actionable advice about how to behave as a guest as well as hold an event of your own. The Art of Entertaining addresses vital questions such as “How do I act with class so the host will ask me back for another party?” and “What is the right thing to bring to this particular gathering?”
As the world reopens and people venture out for new social engagements, The Art of Entertaining is a wonderful refresher on the best parts of hospitality: politeness, generosity, and human connection.
