Most of us enjoy having guests for diner, but it can be an anxiety provoking experience doing all the preparation and wondering if you have done it right. This module will take the guess work out of the preparation leaving you confident, knowing you have done a good job.   There is a real feeling of satisfaction and pleasure when everything goes well. In this module we will go through everything from invitations, menus, accepting gifts, seating guests, serving food, wines or drinks, toasting, table settings, self preparation, table manners and so on.
