Tea Etiquette – the short version

At a tea, or at a luncheon or small party, do not insist on leading the conversation for the whole table.  Broadcasting your ideas is not wise or good form.  On the other hand, do not sit in silence, replying only in monosyllables and just tucking food away.  It is rude to go to a party, collect a group of pals in a corner, and never talk to the other Guests.  The object of any party is to draw a number of congenial persons together for their mutual enjoyment.
