My mother was cleaning out some bookshelves today and brought me this lovely vintage book, Meal Planning and Table Service, copyright 1924. She was a home economics teacher before she was married and I'm guessing with the section for teachers that this was her required reading.
I love the color of the cover and after glancing through the book I'm pretty sure I'm going to love the book as well. It has a lot of pencil marks through it where my mother must have been taking notes and at first glance has a lot of practical information. My daughter who just graduated from college is interested in proper etiquette so she might just end up with the book, although the vintage charm will definately be lost on her!
