Tuesday, February 17, 6:00 pm – The Evolution of the Dinner Party, 1860 – 1954

Etiquetteer (Robert B. Dimmick) will speak at the Gibson House Museum on Tuesday, February 17, on The Evolution of the Dinner Party 1860-1954. “Etiquetteer explores how the way Americans entertained at home changed during the time the Gibsons lived at the Gibson House. The Victorian formal dinner party of many courses and ever more obscure accessories gradually gave way with the social upheavals following World War I, including Prohibition. By World War II, writers like Dorothy Draper were gaily recommending buffet dinners with striking color schemes and other novelties.”
