Today's Inspiration

July 24, 2010
If you are throwing a Mad Men viewing party for the Most Important Night of our Eyes and Soul, you should be asking yourself one question:
WHAT WOULD EMILY POST DO?*
Well, fortunately, the lovely ladies at the Emily Post institute have planned out a whole party for you. Including your manners:

First of all, a hostess must show each of her guests equal and impartial attention.  Engrossed in the person she is talking to, she must be able to notice anything amiss that may occur. No matter what goes wrong she must cover it as best as she may, and at the same time cover the fact that she is covering it. To give hectic directions merely accentuates the awkwardness.

Click for more Postian insight! It’s truly lovely. 
*Additional questions you can ask yourself: is there anything that could protect these characters from the throes of history? Would Ken Cosgrove make a good boyfriend? If the show depicts the chaotic transition from the Eisenhower era to the counter culture revolution of the 1960’s, what transitional moment are we in? Where is Paul Kinsey?!
