KIRKUS REVIEW

A better book than Mrs. Lounsbery's Entertaining Without a Maid, though the bulk of the text deals with entertaining that takes time and money. However, there are suggestions for restricted budgets that sound practicable. A comprehensive text, covering entertaining on all leaves, at all times, from dining room to dinette, with or without a maid, from breakfast to buffet supper. There are introductory chapters on decoration, furniture, linens, tadle settings, service, but most of the text deals with parties, menus and recipes, specialties of all kinds, for anything from the formal wedding to the outdoor picnic.
