Rock a Dinner Party

- Cosmo Editor

  Look glamorous. Better to overdress than be too casual – it shows you put in effort.

  Arrive no more than 15 minutes late. Call or SMS if you’re running late.

  Bring the right gift. Ideas: a bottle of nice olive oil, a book, champagne. Avoid anything that takes work, like flowers that need to be put in a vase.

  Branch out. Aim to talk to everyone there at some point during the evening. A good opening question is ‘How do you know the hostess?’

  Offer to help. Be proactive – say, ‘Let me pour the wine.’ If she gives you the go-ahead take charge of filling glasses.
