This book is pure fantasy for me. I love to entertain but our parties tend to run to burgers on the grill with kids running all over and the adults finding a quiet spot to eat. I think my parties are fun but wow, they are nothing like the beautiful scenes in this book. This is what I aspire to as time and resources allow. Not all the time, I still like the burgers and the running kids but sometimes the elegance of these place settings would be so fun and satisfying.

This is one of those books you keep forever as a reference.

This was a step by step instructional book in the art of napkin folding. Not only did this book have step by step color photos, but the instructions that went along with each picture was precise. In other words... If you mess it up??? I have no clue what to even tell you! There is no excuse!

There were several folds that I have never seen before & not only does this book go through the fold & shows the finished embellished piece, but it
