Cornelia Guest. The entertaining icon.
Yes, she can throw a party for hundreds without blinking, but you can apply those two brilliant and simple entertaining rules to your gathering no matter how formal it is.
Here are my two favorite dinner party tips from Cornelia Guest:
NEVER LET COCKTAILS GO FOR LONGER THAN HALF AN HOUR.
NEVER PLATE. LET PEOPLE SERVE THEMSELVES FROM A PASSED PLATTER OR A BUFFER.
Brilliant! I’m starting this weekend!
