Serious Eats: Talk
The little things count!
I am having a dinner party tonight so it's probably too late to incorporate suggestions, but for future events - what are the "little things" you all do to make a dinner party special?
Tonight, for example, I have prepared little menus for everyone and made an extra dessert (from a recipe i found on this site) that I put in a gift-wrapped boxes for each person to take home.
I am always looking for new ideas to make guests feel special and welcome. What has worked for you?
