Rule #1:"The people in the room are as important as the chairs they're sitting on or as the food they're eating."

Rule #2:"My tables today, they are most like one of my dresses, I try to put in detail. Because I love objects, I love to put flowers, I love to put mint, chocolate, everything on them. And I go around to see what's going on in my house, the objects, the things and I put it everywhere."

Rule #3: "I love color. And this comes from my fashion designer career. For instance, if you ask me which kind of tablecloth I want to put in a table, I never like so much the white tablecloth. I love the colored ones, because china is very beautiful on top of pale yellow, dusty pink, pale blue and jade green color."

Rule #4: "At my right, I always put the oldest person if she's a lady. Or the oldest friend."

Rule #5: "The American couple…they always want to be together. That is not nice. You have to make conversation."

Rule #6: "I send always flowers to thank my hosts. But I prefer when people come with nothing, because I never know where to put it.
