The welcomed guest:

  • Arrives on time, not early or more than 15 minutes late.
  • Does not overindulge in food or beverage.
  • Graciously mingles among the crowd, meeting and greeting.
  • A single gentleman brings a date only when the invitation states his name "and Guest".
  • Recognizes that the absence of ashtrays means no smoking.
  • A guest does not lean back in his chair.
  • Does not bring the party down with negative conversation.
  • If a guest chooses to leave early, he discreetly thanks his hostess and leaves without disturbing the good time being had by others.
