"At a dinner party,
one should eat wisely but not too well,
and talk well but not too wisely."
-W. Somerset Maugham, British playwright
"I try to greet my friends with a drink in my hand,
a warm smile on my face and great music
in the background, because that's what gets
a dinner party off to a fun start."
- Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa
