There is no better time than now for a definitive guide to contemporary civilized living. As traditional codes of behavior have given way to an increasingly informal society, many people are disconcerted by the current lack of guidelines. The established rules are as important as ever, but need adaptation for the complications and developments of the twenty-first century. The Debrett's New Guide to Etiquette and Modern Manners cuts through the confusion to combine the very best of traditional standards of conduct with acceptable modern innovations. Packed with no-nonsense step-by-step advice, it covers everything from basic table manners to how to equip yourself at the grandest royal and diplomatic gatherings. Written with clarity and wit, this book celebrates the charm, beauty, and fascination of classic good manners, and their enduring role in a civilized society.It has also become popular to have a particular theme for a party, such as a favourite film or TV programme: dinosaur parties ... sausages on sticks and soft drinks that, although they may be anathema to the modern nutritionist, are the standard fare for a truly jolly childrena#39;s party. ... Third, unless you are used to entertaining on the grand scale, it is strongly recommended that you hire a party planner to help.
