Behind every good hostess, is an even better decorator. In Charlotte Moss’ 10th book, Charlotte Moss Entertains, we are welcomed in the front door, greeted with a glass of Charlotte’s finest, and encompassed by the mystery of her seemingly effortless entertaining. From inside to outside, casual to formal, summer to winter, Moss stresses that setting the table for every occasion is everyday decorating.
When it comes to mystical settings, Moss is one the greats. Beyond beautiful China and a fabulous menu, Moss believes creative centerpieces are essential to entertaining. In order to set the tone for the evening, it is important to move past beautiful flower arrangements and also use fruits, vegetables, curios, or whatever else is available to fill your table. Why? Because it is the details that show your personality and welcome guests.
We can’t help but envy Moss’ collection of China. Moss’ tip to grow your collection? Buy it all. She encourages entertainers not to wait, to buy the incomplete set or the salad plate that doesn’t perfectly match, because with the right linens or centerpieces, you could pull it all together in a magically beautiful way.
There is so much to be taken away from this inspiring book, but, above all, Moss reinforces our inspiration that every day is an occasion worth celebrating.
