The worst that can happen at a party is for the hostess to be at a loss to know what to provide next, in the way of amusements, for her guests. Whether the visitors be old or young, she must see to it that they have a non-stop round of fun and enjoyment. All this, of course, is easier said than done, since tastes differ considerably, and what pleases one group of folk may fall flat with another. The hostess, therefore, and those helping her, must not tolerate a single dull moment. As soon as a game or diversion loses favour, another should be substituted, and unless the organizers are well versed in party matters their store of knowledge will be speedily exhausted. It is to save such situations as these that this book has been written. It contains between a hundred and fifty and two hundred suggestions for making a party bright and attractive. The items are selected for both adults and youngsters, and it may well be claimed that there are diversions to suit every taste.
