Put Your Guests at Ease ~ Entertaining Fridays #10

Put Your Guests at Ease

Welcome to Entertaining Fridays!  I am so glad you are joining us.  This Friday, I have a simple tip for your next party or gathering that will help put your guests at ease.

Today’s Entertaining Tip:  Give Your Guests Something to Hold.  

When your guests arrive, have appetizers ready or offer them something to drink.  This is especially thoughtful when you are meeting new people or have invited someone who is more introverted by nature.  Having something in his or her hands can help put a person at ease.

Have you ever felt more comfortable in a new situation when you have something to fidget with in your hands?  I sure have!

  1. I love this tip! It is a great way to help them feel at home in your home! I think self-serving drink stations help this along. That way, you don’t feel compelled to take drink orders immediately when people arrive — you might be still finishing dinner! haha!
