Dinner Party Etiquette......Who knew that there was still such a thing! Please, didn't that go out in the 60's or at least the 70's? Well, I know for a fact that it didn't in the true South as it is the Southern way to have good manners, mind your P's and Q's and for heaven sake set a nice table.
Well, I must confess I am joking about does Dinner Party Etiquette still exist. Yes, it does, but what is so delightful is that now days you can set your table with a hodge podge of plates and crystal and it will turn out beautiful. I love the fact that you don't have to have matching plates, glasses, etc. Anything goes.....it is all left to your imagination. Now you can express your own true style which is what it should be.
Anyway....thought you might like this article "Dinner Party Etiquette What You Should Know About It". It has some blast from the past on how vintage dinner parties were once conducted written by Emily Post in 1922(The Queen of Etiquette, and I say that reverently).
Now remember, I advise everyone to do exactly what they want to do and be as creative as possible with your parties. It is your party so you handle it the way you think is best. Also, check out their resources tabs on the left for recipes, what kind of drinks to serve and even centerpieces. Be sure to dig deep as there are some real resource goodies inside.
I have included some items that we offer that might spruce up a luncheon or even a summer dinner party.
