Kate Spade’s collection of books titled Manners, Style and Occasions are a must-read for all brides and party-throwers alike. The series is complete with fantastic watercolor illustrations that provide great visual references for the topics covered. In her book titled Style, this noted hand-bag designer shares her own perspective on color selection, wardrobe and accessories. Her candidness on this topic can inspire us all, despite our individual preferences when it comes to style. In Occasions, Kate shares her insight on tried ‘n true party standards that everyone needs to know to have what she describes as “the perfect time.” The tidbits she provides can help us all in the areas of hosting and party-planning. And in Manners, you’ll find answers to the ever-so-concerning etiquette conundrums that we all face! Small in size but packed full of useful information, definitely put these books on your list to read this summer and perhaps even give them as gifts to all of your girlfriends. We discovered this Kate Spade collection at On A Whim in Oklahoma City and there’s also a whole host of online outlets that carry them as well! Enjoy!
