I imagine that Dorothy Draper was the Martha Stewart of the 1930’s and 40’s throwing fantastic parties and doing everything beautifully than the rest of the women on earth I loved everything about this “how to” book and freuently found myself reading sections of it aloud to my husband “Dear why don’t we invite all your gentlemen friends over sometime so you can all listen to the big fight on the radio”  Some of the information was dated and funny to read from a 21st Century perspective like how many and what type of ash trays to have at your parties or bringing your weekend guests breakfast in bed I’d like to try it but I’m afraid that the few weekend guests I have will think I’ve gone crazy and will not be interested in enjoying my hospitality again Reading this book also made me feel sentimental because this is EXACTLY how my grandmother would entertain and I wonder if she read this book as a new bride On my last visit to her the week she died she still offered my husband a cocktail as soon as he came in the door Dorothy mentions that it’s okay to do this since the Repeal I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in daily life before WWII entertaining or housekeeping And if anyone knows a good butler looking for work please contact me by telegraph

I knew I would like this but I was surprised by how much I LOVED it and just how densely packed it was with information It had a lot philosophy and self help tips than I was expecting Parts of it were similar to How to Win Friends and Influence People The moral of the story if you want to have a good time and really care about your guests that is how you host a great party This is not about recipes or decorations as much as it is about how to live life to the fullest and enjoy the company of our fellow human beings My biggest takeaway was to make simpler recipes or things that can be done ahead of time so I am greeting every guest with a big relaxed smile and hug rather than frantically running around trying to get the food just right No one likes a stressed hostessThere is a reason she was the final word on decorating and entertaining mid century She is brilliant
