Fall Dinner Party - Lessons And A Menu

It all started when I bought the Dinner Party Issue of Bon App├ętit magazine about a month ago.  I was mesmerized by beautiful tablescapes and delicious recipes.  Plus, a whole how-to section for hosting a Friday night dinner party.  I immediately wanted to be the kind of person that hosted dinner parties.  I glanced over at my dining table, covered in cake stands, dishes, pantry items, and a slew of other things that just didn’t seem to fit anywhere else.  This was a problem.
