Hello Darlings, There’s only one thing more precious than our time and that’s who we spend it on. With Friday evening dinners and Sunday morning brunches, comes a moment when being a great guest is as important as being an exceptional host. While we all have our family traditions and every family has its quirks, we’ve all faced those awkward moments when biting your tongue is the best option. Being a good guest is knowing how to put your best qualities on display. From knowing when to back away from the wrong conversation or what kind of flowers to bring for the hosts is not just a kind gesture but also a sign of respect for your company. It’s a matter of being a good guest!
As Emily Post famously said, “Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” So what does it take to make a good guest, here’s what Emily Post said. It’s fairly simple but definitely a gentle and kind reminder during the times when technology rules our social life.
