Gift Tip #17: Chic by Colin Cowie

I LOVE books like this! Check out what Colin's (first name basis...uh huh) website says about the book...

From the horse's mouth

This comprehensive guide demonstrates ways how each of us can entertain in an inviting home, garner respect in the workplace, and travel with ease and comfort. An immensely practical handbook, Colin Cowie Chic is a guide to living life as it should be...which is much better than life as it could be.

Here are three tips for throwing a stress-free soiree:

  1. PLAN AHEAD. Put out serving pieces, place settings and glasses the night before.

  2. MAKE SPACE. Keep tables uncluttered, and rearrange furniture to give guests plenty of room to mingle.

  3. TAKE A MOMENT. "Twenty minutes before guests arrive, sit down and relax," he says.
