On Tuesday, September 16th, French silverware company Christofle toasted the launch of author Daniel Cappello’s new book, Dinner Diaries: Reviving the Art of the Hostess Book, with a party at its Madison Avenue flagship. To celebrate the tome’s theme, Manhattan asked attendees, which included notables like publishers Martine and Prosper Assouline, actress Kelly Rutherford, author Hilary Geary Ross and her financier husband Wilbur Ross, about their biggest gaffes while hosting a soiree.
