In this two part series we will go through some tips from Emily Post’s book, Etiquette in 1922. Post was an American author famous for writing about etiquette. Part two are six ways to be a good guest.
Enjoy & let us know what you think in the comments below!
1. Tell your host whether or not you will attend
If you delay your reply, you could hinder the host’s planning and make it seem as if you’re waiting for something better to come along. It is thoughtful to thank your host for the invitation.
2. Be on time
Punctuality means different things to people in different regions.
3. Be a willing participant
When your host says that it’s time for dinner, go straight to the table. If you’re asked to participate in a party game or view Susie’s graduation pictures, accept graciously and enthusiastically no matter how you really feel.
4. Offer to help when you can
Even if your offer is refused, your gesture will be appreciated.
5. Don’t overindulge
Moderation is the name of the game.
6. Thank your host twice
In fact, a written note is always appreciated—even after casual parties.
