Who in your own life would you give the title of “Hostess With the Mostess”?

Leisure, Q&A, Travel & Leisure | November 26th, 2008 No comments

Elegance and grace, or beer and pizza parties – good attention comes in all sorts of packages. Today’s question comes, just in time for Thanksgiving, from the consummate hostess-with-the-mostess, Jennifer Sbranti, whose brilliant website really is the place to learn all there is to know about entertaining with style, grace and ease.

Carrie says: My grandmother was the best hostess! She could whip up Christmas dinner for 15 with grace and wonder. I learned impeccable manners, how to set a gorgeous table and make the best cup of tea. She was my Martha Stewart, I miss her!

Danielle says: My Organic Treasure sister, Candis! New magazines and fresh towels at the end of your bed, with bubble bath treats. Pumpkin muffins in the morning. And she always buys my favourite cheese….which is really any kind of cheese.

Jennifer says: My mom – because she opened our home to friends and family members in need for as long as I can remember. Being a great hostess extends to more than just parties…and because my mom was such a caring and welcoming hostess when it really counted, I grew up with cousins, aunts, exchange students, and family friends that lived with us for anywhere from months to years at a time. The fact that she was a fabulous cook was just icing on the cake!
