Today I'm offering for sale a group of 14 "Pause For Living" Coca Cola Home Decorating Books from the 1960's. From October 1954 to 1969 Coca Cola began publishing Pause, the home decorating books with a Coca Cola theme while showing stunning ideas for decorating for parties, special occasions, and holidays all through the year.
Pause For Living was published and locally distributed by the Coca Cola Bottling Company. They were found in doctors and dentist offices, beauty parlors, beverage distributors, and any place women could get their hands on them.
Each book gives the hostess ideas on flower arrangements, table decorations, ideas for special parties, bridal showers, weddings, and great suggestions for everyday family gatherings. For a short time Coca Cola had recipes in the books which were later stopped when fans of the books complained.
Each book has around 22 to 24 pages loaded with great color photos and short paragraphs on the item shown and ideas on how to use Coca Cola in making a special drink. The books measure 5 1/2" x 8".
Listed below is each book and the date it was published:
1.) Summer 1961. 2.) Spring 1962. 3.) Summer 1962. 4.) Autumn 1962. 5.) Spring 1963. 6.) Autumn 1963.

**Condition: All the books are in very good condition. The covers are very clean and bright with very tiny corner bumps. The inside pages are in excellent condition.
Growing up in the 1950's and the 1960's I can still remember seeing my mom and my sisters looking at these and then trying to make the decorations in these books.
A wonderful gift to give to anyone who loves to entertain and learn new ways to decorate.
