How can I be a good dinner guest?

Being a guest is equally as important as being a host. Your host has gone through a lot of effort to have you in their home. The best thing that a guest can do is to notice and acknowledge their host’s efforts…comment on the table setting, flowers, music, food, etc.

In my opinion, a gift is also a great way to let your host know how much you appreciate their hospitality. I like to give little things that they would not necessarily buy for themselves yet are useful.

  • luxury soaps/lotions
  • Book tied with wire ribbon
  • well made dish towels
  • tools for opening wine/beverages
  • serving platter or bowl – glass or neutral unless you know the style of their home
  • treats for their pet
  • Wine or their favorite specialty beverage
