8 Things to Remember When Attending a Holiday Party

I came across a very timely article on The Frisky the other day about how not to become a party pariah in front of your family, co-workers, or friends. I'm sure most of you will be attending your fair share of holiday parties this year so I thought it'd be a good idea to share its four suggestions with you, and offer up four of my own, too! Check out their tips below:

  • Keep the booze in check
  • Invite one date at a time
  • Don't drunk dial
  • Keep your inner stripper at bay

To see my suggestions,

  • Don't say anything that you wouldn't say sober
  • Don't overstay your welcome — no one likes a lingering party guest
  • Don't overdo the PDA
  • Be mindful of wardrobe malfunctions

Great tips! Here's one more - eat a light dinner before you attend the party! Especially if you're going to have some drinks, you should not show up hungry. Learned my lesson a few times at parties where there is food served but it's only light appetizers and those don't absorb the alcohol!

the PDA one is a good reminder. when i get drinking, i end up being much more smoochy smoochy with my bf then i probably should be. nothing vulgar, but at an anniversary party for his colleague the other day i can remember sitting on his lap by about 1am. i probably shouldn't have done that!

A party guest (not paid entertainment) stripped at the last party I went to. To Nelly's "Hot in Herre". He was going to stop at the boxers, but someone pulled them down so everyone got an eyeful. Wasn't anyone I know, though. Just some friend of a friend of a friend. It was just kind of funny. Though possibly not for him.

Ugh, the last party I threw, it was in my friends honor because he is leaving for the air force next week (how sad!) and these two people I barely knew stayed after he did, and just would not leave!So please, do not over stay your welcome! It is very annoying.

Love the last suggestion. I'll be using plenty of double sided tape (even though my dress is not all that revealing). Can't wait for my company holiday party on Friday :)

Oh man, don't overstay your welcome is a biggie. I always have at least a handful of party lingerers...and it's usually people you barely know.

I think a good one is if your going over somebody's house or someone has invited you to a holiday party, to bring a hostess's gift to them to show that you appreciate all the work that they have done to make the party fab-u-lous :)

I think Don't overstay your welcome is really important! If you're going to stay late, at least help me clean up a little! Otherwise, just leave when everyone else does!
