Decorum 10 years ago holiday party etiquette
1| RSVP & Be On Time. Let the host(ess) know you’re coming & ask what you can bring. Show up within 20 minutes after the start time.
2| Never, ever show up empty handed. Bring not only a bottle of wine or champagne, but a little something extra special for the hostess such as the “Taste-Test Recipe Book.”
3| Turn your cellphone off (or to vibrate).
4| Have fun! Nothing pays a compliment to the host more than laughter & great conversation. Slip a game into your bag and offer it to the hostess if things are slowing down.
5| Send a “Thank You” note, handwritten.
