Gracious Guests and Helpful Hosts

We’re entering that time of year where people often spend more time celebrating various holidays with friends and family. While this should lead to enjoyment, it can often lead to disaster – which brings me to today’s Top 5 post.

Today’s Top 5 has a list for both guests and hosts to do (or to not do) in order to enjoy holidays more.

The lists were compiled after a reader asked if it was okay to host a potluck Thanksgiving. My answer: it absolutely is, provided that all expectations are clearly defined to your guests in the beginning.

Enjoy!

Guests Top 5:

  • Show up on time
  • Offer to bring something to share
  • Bring a hostess gift
  • Help clean up after the meal
  • Don’t overstay your welcome

Hosts Top 5:

  • Set out clear expectations of your guests
  • Have most items prepped before guests arrive
  • Have yourself fully dressed and ready to celebrate by the time guests arrive
  • Delegate tasks to your guests if help is offered
  • Always be gracious and welcoming to your guests

Merry Christmas!! If you are feeling behind in getting your Christmas cards out, take heart! You have until the Epiphany (Jan. 6th) to do so!

Now, for the first part of the changes that are coming!!!!

Tonight I will host the FIRST (of, hopefully, many) Facebook Live video going over introduction etiquette! Sometimes it’s easier to see than read, so I hope this helps!

I want to truly make etiquette for everyone, and I know not everyone can afford to attend one of the classes or you may not be close, physically, to Sulphur Springs.

We will start at 6pm CST. I hope to see you here tonight! I’ll answer questions live and share a book I was recently given. ☺️☺️🙌

Thank you for your support!!
