Apr 24, Megan Winget rated it really liked it Shelves: This was the first “how to be a woman” book that I ever bought. I found it in the “home-ec” section of the shelves in college and essentially never forgot it.
In this book, Pat Montandon essentially gives advice on how to throw a fantastic party. A theme that runs throughout my collection.
Best piece of advice: I also remember something about laying down on the divan. Nov 04, Dawn-Elin Fraser rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: SF socialite Pat Montandon mother of that Wilsey kid who wrote the tell-all is the princess of propriety.

Her son, Sean Wilsey, wrote “The Glory of it All,” which was serialized by the Chronicle a few years back, and although I didn’t care for that book very much, it did introduce me to a cast of San Francisco characters I hadn’t ever paid attention, including his mother, Pat.

How To Be A Party Girl by Pat Montandon
This book is exactly what it claims to be. Pat offers hundreds of great suggestions for hosting glamorous parties, advice on how to look fabulous, and plenty of witty anecdotes about various hos and their amusing gaffes. With the exception of the chapter on hostess pantsuits and culottes, most of it could have been written today. Jun 13, Jennifer rated it it was amazing.
My Pretty Baby Cried She Was a Bird: “How To Be a Party Girl” (Pat Montandon, )
My end of the school year book. Montandon conjures a long-dead San Francisco world in this guide to the womanly arts of entertaining. I read it every summer to mark the passage into reading that could never possibly taught to my students.
