' f',* i. >H PARTY WHEELS to Put Variety In Social Events Let Visitors Help Shift the Scenery—Highly Original and Very Popular. By EDITH M. BAttBEn. The season for formal parties la | about over. Of course, there may be some for the late June bride, but any hostess who is entertaining for the bridal party, which has been feted for the usual number ot weeks before the wedding, will flnd herself very popular if she varies her party. 'When I use the word party I am (thinking of food, one of the first, things with which the hostess must concern herself if she is to make her party a success. If she is sure of this she will have the time, 'energy and interest to give her guests a good time. Have you been to a party where the hostess was so flurried and worried about the refreshments that It was contagious? The Simplest things served without apparent effort on the part of the hostess will be more, enjoyed by the guests than more elaborate food served with effort. Never let your guests see the wheels go round I I think I will tell you about a really original supper which was served not long ago by a elever hostess to twenty- four persons. She asked her guests for supper (not for dinner) at 7.30. Tables set for six were arranged In the living room and the dining room. They were lighted by many candles for a very good reason this time as well as for the lovely light which they Ktve, The reason was that all the floor Fplugs vJere In use and on each table was an electric waffle Iron and a coffee pot which she had commandeered from her friends to supplement her own. The coffee was In the pot ready to | start while the waffle Irons were heating and while the guests ate the first course of chilled melon. One guest was designated monitor of the coffee pot and another of the waffles. There was a pitcher of waffle battery ready to use when the Iron had been heated the right number of minutes. Platters of fried chicken, dishes of creamed potatoes and new peas were passed while the waffles were baking. There was a pitcher of brown cream gravy for the waffles and of sirup as well for those who must have It with waffles. After the pot of coffee was emptied It was refilled in the kitchen and a fresh supply made at the table. For the salad course still another guest was asked to mix and serve the salad with the materials needed on the tray in front of her (or him). There is often a man who is a real artist in this respect and of course proud of it. Dessert after such a meal should be/light as guests are certain to eat a larger amount than usual of food prepared at the table. It may be left out entirely; an ice, strawberry, raspberry or pineapple or some other fruit is a good choice. For the evening party when later refreshments are served a molded salad with savory sandwiches, olives, salted nuts, hot and cold beverages are always good. Another choice is creamed sweetbreads or chicken or fish served in patty cases. A stuffed tomato salad goes well with this. If you wish to make the supper a little more elaborate add potato croquettes and hot rolls, and a meringue with ice cream makes an attractive dessert. Fancy cakes or slices of fruit can be served with this.
