With the holidays quickly approaching, you will most likely be invited to a number of parties. Or, you may even host your own. Either way, there are some simple ways to prepare to ensure you don’t commit any guest or host faux-pas – and still enjoy yourself! We have provided a simple dos and don’ts checklist for you to keep in mind as you make the rounds this holiday season.
Do make sure you send out invitations well in advance.
Don’t skimp on appetizers; people will snack!
Do delegate one person to help you at the party.
Don’t forget to consider dietary restrictions.
Do offer alcoholic and non-alcoholic options.
Don’t overthink everything; you want to enjoy your own party.
Don’t overcommit yourself this holiday season.
Do check the dress code.
Don’t assume kids are invited. Be sure to ask!
Do make sure to mingle with new faces; it’s the surest way to have a good time.
Don’t assume you get a plus one.
Do be a gracious guest. This includes drinking responsibly. If you do find you’ve had too much to drink, ensure your and others’ safety, by calling a service or someone you know to pick you up. W
