We’re sure your Halloween celebration includes some ghoulish fun, which we strongly encourage. And though we‘d never want to make your blood boil, we do feel the need to remind you that the usual party etiquette guidelines still apply.
- Make sure your guest list is relevant. If your celebration agenda or entertainment includes things that will offend (er, scare the daylights out of) potential guests, it may be best not to invite them. Or, you may want to tone down the offensiveness.
- Remember your hosting duties. Greet every guest. This is especially important on a night when pranks are rampant. You want to make sure the people who enter your home are actually invited so you can keep unwanted activity at bay. But also, a good host ensures that guests are eating, drinking, and mingling. The ultimate goal – and host’s responsibility – is for everyone to have a good time!
- Keep your guests informed. Before arriving, they need to know if they should be in costume or not. If they should expect cocktails and Halloween candy, or if dinner will be served. And they definitely need to know where and when they should show up.
Halloween is such fun! Using these guidelines will help keep those bad goblins away.
