Party Tips - Greet Your Guests.

We are currently working on styling a baby shower for this coming weekend.  It has been so much fun working on all of the details for this shower. But as I work on this baby shower, it brings to mind a baby shower I attended as a guest earlier this year. I love just being a guest at an event. Having the opportunity to relax and enjoy the celebration without worrying about taking care of the specifics. For this particular shower I wasn't too familiar with anyone else who was attending and I didn't recognize any of the names on the invitation who were hosting. The day of the event I walked into the clubhouse, and just a casual glance around the room confirmed that I did indeed not know anyone, since the guest of honor (mom to be) had not arrived yet. There was a span of time where I debated which circle of women I should break into, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out who was a hostess. After choosing some women to introduce myself to, I proceeded to enjoy my time celebrating the new baby. All this to say, that in the span of two and a half hours, I never did meet any of the three women who were hosting the shower. I've talked extensively on the blog about the importance of hospitality. I cannot stress enough that it is just a common courtesy to greet your guests.

  1. What an odd experience that must have been! But can't wait to see your posts on the baby shower you're styling. :-)
