1. Invite clearly
Include necessary information for your guests in the invitation so all they have to do is respond “yes” or “no.”
2. Plan well
Have this done well before your guests arrive so you’ll feel relaxed from the very beginning.
3. Be welcoming and attentive
Look after each guest as much as you can.
4. Be flexible and gracious
Your soufflé falls, an unanticipated guest arrives, or one of your guests has an allergy? Have a back-up plan and always be gracious. A good host would never send an uninvited guest packing.
5. Be the leader and the spark
It’s your job to run the show and let your guests know when it’s time for dinner, dessert, or charades.
6. Be appreciative
