First published in 1931 and illustrated with delightful period drawings, The Perfect Hostess covers every problem of running a home from simple rules for simple servants to the qualities that make a marriage a success. Interesting thoughts for the truly perfect hostess include rules for bridge, perfect present giving, ideas for children's parties, welcome and unwelcome guests and a list of necessities for every room in the house. Rose Henniker-Heaton's thoughts for cooks may not be as useful now as they were in 1931, but it is always useful to know what to serve at your country cottage when the Prime Minister comes to dine. There are delicious menu suggestions for every social occasion whether it be Your Rich Relative comes to Luncheon or The Family Gathering takes place at your House. Over 70 years later, this is still the perfect gift for any hostess, faithfully reprinted from the original.
