As a wealthy and influential family, Sam and Adelaide McLaughlin were well known for their hospitality and entertained frequently. Successful social events required the host and hostess to be well-versed in the pronouncements of etiquette experts like Emily Post. Having a large and well-trained household staff was invaluable as well.
From the invitations to menu and course selections, to china, linens and seating plans, each event was an orchestration of culinary, table service and social skills. Even the guests were expected to play their part beautifully and correctly. Many of these traditions have been lost to time – some say with regret, some say with “good riddance”!
The programme includes light refreshments -with china cups of course! Dining Decorum is approximately 90 minutes in duration and is perfect for groups of 10-12 guests.
