Description

Product Description

Renowned and beloved interior designer and tastemaker Charlotte Moss celebrates gracious hospitality—from assembling striking place settings and arranging the table to hosting a dinner party or simply serving an elegant afternoon tea.

Charlotte Moss inspires readers to imbue everyday life with elegance and romance. Moss focuses on events—as small as breakfast in bed or tea in the afternoon or as elaborate as a festive Christmas luncheon or large dinner party—and the artifacts of our lives (china, silver, linen) to create the backdrop for a life well lived.

Moss celebrates the day-to-day by bringing her enthusiasm and impeccable style to every domestic activity. Setting the table becomes a joy when putting together stylish combinations of place mats, monogrammed linens, china, tableware, curios, and flowers. From tasteful meals for one to grand occasions for friends and family, Moss chronicles her own aptitude for hospitality. Style icons are conjured for their entertaining savvy: Pauline de Rothschild for her pioneering tabletop decoration, Marjorie Merriweather Post for her organizational precision, Lesley Blanch for her introduction of exotic delights to the table, and Elsie de Wolfe for her always-right recipes. Butlers’ pantries are explored. Linen closets are catalogued. Flowers are collected from the garden and artfully arranged for a memorable meal. Moss invites you into her world to discover how to make everyday an occasion.

Review

"Moss provides poignant tips on how to choose music and menus, master a seating arrangement, and create an element of surprise that will keep every guest anticipating an invitation to future fetes."
—Margaret Zainey Roux, Southern Home

" Charlotte Moss Entertains brings sumptuous building blocks—china, linens, flowers—to stunning life."

I like Charlotte Moss. She has curiosity and drive, and she has wonderful taste. That said, this book is a disappointment. Production-wise, it seems cheap. Flat, low quality pages, printed in China. So here is a guide to fabulously stylish entertainment that exemplifies a lack of attention to the sort of aesthetic detail touted by the author. Also, one section of the book is devoted to a few cursory accounts of women who were reputed to be great hostesses in their day, but the few cobbled together paragraphs about each and the poor photography make the section appear to be slapdash filler. The book should have offered more specific information about china patterns, silverware, linens, and crystal, instead of just a list of resources at the end. If readers are looking for information about what sort of household staff one will need at each of her or his three or more residences (one chef, one person dedicated to the inventory and ironing of table linens, gardeners, housekeepers, an assistant for scheduling and travel arrangements, get the picture?), then this book will be helpful. Otherwise, take a pass and wait until Rizzoli returns to its former glory, which I hope happens soon.

What a disappointment! I have several books on entertaining and thought this would be a good addition but it’s mostly pages and pages of photo collages and menus and photos from Moss’s parties. Her idea of entertaining requires an enormous amount of helpers: caterers, servers, florists, staff to iron and inventory all her linens, staff to keep track of her china, crystal and sterling flatware in her multiple houses. Not much in the way of useful entertaining advice. Some of the book pages were not cut at the top so they tore when I tried to turn them. The whole book seemed hastily put together by the author with lots of filler material used to up the page count.

Charlotte Moss for years has been my idol. Sad to say this book fell flat. As always beautiful photography, but on cheap paper. The spine is giving way and pages are starting to float. I wanted this book to be my cozy book for summer, sadly it will not. I also found it difficult puzzling out where to find name of china and other charming displays could be obtained. Sourcing at the back of the book made that a clumsy way. I own all books Ms Moss has ever published and this is not keeping up. Flat, tired and not well thought out.
Is Rizzoli also taking the lux out of their printing.
Should be two stars, but as a fan of Charlotte Moss that seemed cruel.

Charlotte Moss Entertains is a gorgeous book on gracious Southern Entertaining The tables are a delight to feast the eye and the food to warm your taste buds. I will say here though i do not think this book is for the average housewife, although she or he may gain some tips on gracious entertaining throughout the book. Its mainly for very wealthy folks who have resident cooks and staff who can help prepare all of it from food to serving. And it does take a talented staff to pull all of these things off as presented and written Just be aware of it buying the book Other than that i loved it and will give it to friends and family as gifts.. Very beautiful book and gorgeous photography...Loved it..

Love this beautiful book and the ideas for combining floral arrangements with dishes and table linens. As for rating it,
the menu ideas were a nice touch but recipes would have been a great addition for those who enjoy cooking as well as decorating. Photos of guests could have been eliminated as it does nothing for the reader. Resource page should provide the item and page number for the company listed as do most magazines, but, overall, I will enjoy this book and would give it as a gift.

Disappointed 😔 considering returning. I was so looking forward to learning from her but, basically this is a picture book and the photography isn’t very good! The fall table with pumpkins looked adorable however, the photographers shot was very vague and I can’t really get a good look at entire table. I may just use it for a decoration coffee table book. I can tell she is an outstanding hostess but would have thought she’d put more effort into this book. Very dissatisfied.
