Description
"Far more than a guide to homemaking and being a fine hostalthough it is definitely all that tooThe Inviting Life is about how to live each day with a desire and determination to turn the ordinary into something lovely. Its also a book about why we should bother. Whether the subject is ♯cor, ambience, shopping, feeding weary travellers, mixing cocktails, planning dinner parties, or getting yourself motivated for spring cleaning, Laura Calder affirms the value of our everyday activities and shows how beauty, creativity, and delight have the power to change the world. This one-of-a-kind book is both a page-turning narrative about Lauras own hosting and home-making adventures and an invaluable work of reference. Its a spur to ideas for everything from creating a welcoming living space and making a respectable salad, to putting guests at their ease and writing a thank-you note worth receiving. Written with candour and humour in Lauras inimitable and engaging voice, The Inviting Life offers empowering guidance for anyone looking to take more pleasure in their life and home."--Page [4] of cover.
