Let us show you how to successfully plan your next event and become the quintessential host whose friends can't wait for your next party. We "dine" with our eyes before ever tasting the food and by setting

An invitation to a VIP black or white tie event? No problem, we can guide you through appropriate
dress codes and the etiquette of the all important RSVP. Formal dinners can range from four course meals
to extravagant nine course feasts. We will explain the often confusing flatware set for multiple courses,
how to tackle unusual foods, use the flatware correctly and understand the "cues" for wait staff. Being confident about your personal place setting will put you at ease and prevent the faux pas of eating your neighbor’s bread or drinking their wine! Follow our guidelines and ideas for hostess gifts and you will be
the guest people want to invite back again.
