social graces

My thoughts turn to items that would enhance one's social graces.
I have already spotted a few items that are on my "must have" list.

"Draper" table (above) here
New "Classy" book here
Lovely party frocks here
"Catering" list from here
"Great Bourbon" here
Building a responsible "nest" here
(listen here) to Hosting a dinner party by Laura Fraser, the author of "All Over The Map."
Wishing this graced my life 18 years ago - a chic clutch for Modern Motherhood.

Care to share any new items or tips that have graced your social diary?

The book sounds wonderful.

Agree about the linen napkins and a lovely table even for lunch with the grandchildren so they can see the example set!

Is that a bust of JFK on the bar cart? That's pretty swellegant.

Oohh... that Classy book looks like a must-read! I'd add a silver cocktail shaker to that fabulous bar cart... goodness knows, four days without power would lead this blogger to drink!
