Manners Begin at Breakfast addresses rules of etiquette, including basic table manners, social media, fashion dos and don’ts, and party conversation. Illustrated with charming, specially commissioned watercolors and written in a lively, conversational style, it’s the perfect holiday present. mariechantal.com
