This excellent guidebook is crammed with practical and effective techniques. On page 144, under the heading "How to Juggle a Glass and Plate of Hors d'Oeuvres", Diane says:

"First, I strongly suggest you choose one or the other and not juggle. You will feel more confident and that puts those around you at ease. If you must juggle, be very careful. Here are some guidelines:
  • Stand near a table so that you can put your glass down frequently.
  • Hold your glass in your left hand. Cold drinks in glasses and cans will sweat. If you are holding the drink in your right hand and you reach out to shake hands, you will give the other person a cold, clammy handshake. Or you will have to do a "hip-slap handshake" by wiping off the drink sweat on you clothes prior to shaking hands.
  • When drinking white wine, hold your glass by the stem. This keeps your hand from warming the drink.
  • Maintain eye contact when talking with someone.
  • If you drop something in someone's home, pick it up immediately. If you are at a function, use your best judgement.
  • Purchase a PartyClip that clips on your plate and has a ring to hold the wine glass (www.PartyClip.com)."
