Whether 'a dinner of four, or a ball of four hundred', Party-Giving on Every Scale has everything you need to know, including how it should be organised, what food to serve and 'The Use and Misuse of Bunting'. Covering all aspects of how to give a party on almost any occasion, this is an essential guide for 'young married people, for instance, or those who have come into money, or mothers who commence entertaining on bringing out their daughters'. While the number of people who have 'at homes' has declined somewhat since it was first published in 1880, this book still contains useful advice on the way things should be done and will appeal to party-givers, party-goers and social historians alike. With handy hints, such as suggested seasonal menus, a table of fish, poultry and game, meat, vegetables and fruit by season and instructions on how to calculate how much food and drink to lay on for guests, this is a charming book and a must for all hosts and hostesses.
