Do you love socializing with other people and going to parties? That’s great! If you visit your friends in their houses, there are a couple of things you need to remember about.
- Think of some outfit in which you will feel comfortable, but at the same time don’t forget to look nice. It depends on the occasion but before you leave the house check your wardrobe and pick appropriate clothes.
- It is polite to ask the host if you should bring any food like snacks or beverages. Even if they refuse, you can take a bottle of good wine with you. Believe me this small gift will mean a lot.
- Try to come on time or turn up not later than fifteen minutes after it is scheduled. It seems a good idea to say „thanks for inviting me” and compliment the hosts on something charming in their house. They will appreciate your interest and honest intentions.
- I don’t need to remind you about making conversations with other people. You never know who has been invited. There can be really interesting people around. Come up to someone who looks friendly and have a small talk.
- As the party is slowly coming to an end, find the host and tell them „I had a lovely time.” Show your gratitude and say „Hope to see you next time in my place. You’re invited.”
