An Overview of How To Be The Perfect Garden Guest

Whether you’re the kind of person who likes to keep to themselves or you’re the life of the party, you may find yourself in a situation where you are a guest at someone else’s home. Whether it be for dinner, drinks or an event, as a guest, there are certain rules of etiquette that need to be adhered to. Every situation is different, but generally speaking, having good manners can go a long way toward making you a better guest. However, being invited into somebody else’s house can make things slightly stressful. This article will give you some pointers on how to be the perfect garden guest so that your host will want you back again!


Arriving On Time Or Early

If you’re invited to a specific time, then of course you should arrive on time. If you arrive on time, then great! If you arrive early, it’s good to ask if it is okay to come inside. This shows consideration and respect; it also helps you ease into the situation so that you’re not standing awkwardly on the front step. Your host may appreciate the gesture, even if they say it’s not necessary. If you are invited to a casual event, such as a BBQ or drinks with friends, arrive a little early. Being early is a great way to start off on the right foot and also give you time to relax and get into the right head space before you enter the event. Being early is also helpful if you need to use the bathroom before the event starts!


The Gift Exchange

First and foremost, when invited to a house event, you should bring a gift. You don’t have to bring a gift to a casual event, but if you are invited to a more formal event, such as a dinner party, you should bring a gift. The gift doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate; in fact, it can be as simple as a basket of dates or flowers. The gift doesn’t have to pertain to the event you are invited to. For example, if you are invited to a birthday party, it doesn’t have to be a gift that pertains to a birthday. It can be anything from a nice piece of jewellery to a book that you think the person would enjoy. Good Gardn


Food and Dining Etiquette

First, let’s talk about food. If you are at a more formal event, it is best to avoid bringing up the topic of what you will eat. It is best to choose something from the menu if you are unsure of your food choice. You don’t want to cause any issues by bringing up dietary restrictions or allergies. If there is a buffet or food at a casual event, it is best to wait until the host directs you to begin to eat. If you are unsure of how long to wait before you begin to eat, you can ask the host. It is best not to drink alcohol at the table unless it is okay to do so. If alcohol is served, it is okay to wait until the host is done with his or her beverage before you begin to drink. If there is a certain eating etiquette, such as if you are at a formal event, it is best to keep up with what the other people are doing around you. If you are unsure of what etiquette to follow, it is best to quietly ask the host.
