When invited to a party at someone’s house it’s always nice to bring the hostess a small gift—perhaps a bottle of wine, some flowers or candy..

Should you have any diet restrictions it’s best to let the hostess before the party..

I know sometimes it gets a little confusing when you sit down and look at a formal silverware place setting. You should always remember to eat from the outside in through the meal. Water, then wine glasses are placed above the knife and spoon. The bread-and-butter plate is placed above the salad fork and dinner fork. The dessert fork goes at the top of the plate. Napkin is placed under the forks.
