What Not To Party: Bad Host Blahs

Last Friday FabSugar invited me to a fashion show that bad boy designer Zac Posen was going to be at. Thinking the (front row!) seats with our names would be waiting for us, we stayed in the pre-show party area (with the handsome mayor!) until the last minute. When we walked into the tent the stands were over flowed and crowded, none of the ushers had seating charts, and when we approached the host (aka event planner) he looked like a deer in headlights. He didn't find us seats and didn't apologize for the disorganization and when I told him (as one party planner to another) that I was appalled by his behavior, he turned and walked away!!

Moral(s) of the story: always print out seating charts at large events for the wait staff, always remain cool and collected when frazzled guests approach you with dilemmas, and always apologize for making a guest feel uncomfortable or unwanted. A great host is someone who makes one feel warm, loved and like they belong, so remember that at your next party.
