Victorian Party-Giving on Every Scale by Anon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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.
