A successful dinner party is like a summer blockbuster; they both require good-looking people, before-supper snacking, and explosions. Set the stage for dinnertime blowups with today's Groupon: for $50, you get $100 worth of tableware, glassware, and gifts online from to have & to host.
to have & to host equips elegant entertainers with sleek, modern homewares. Transform lunchtime into a language lesson by setting peanut-butter-and-pickle sandwiches on small Christopher Jagmin porcelain dishes emblazoned with French numbers including deux, trois, and Yahtzee ($78 for a set of four). And after dinner, meal mates can forgo games of charades to act out Little Shop of Horrors using plant-shaped botanical napkin holders ($22). to have & to host also helps gallant guests repay hospitality with a hostess gift, such as a black-and-white linen tote with a bamboo ring handle that can double as a lasso for on-the-lam pandas ($32).
