It was up to Mrs. Ramsay to correct the flaws of her artwork by connecting all of her guests together by using her overwhelming charisma. For the remaining time of the dinner party, the guests dedicate most of their attention on Mrs. Ramsay and at the same time, Mrs. Ramsay pays most of her attention to pleasing her guests.
