Holiday Etiquette 101 | Sandi Parkey Pink Zebra Independent Consultant
Is your calendar booked full this month? Between school plays, ornament exchanges, Christmas cookie bake-offs and much more holiday fun, it’s no wonder that you have something going on most days of the week during December. And with all those activities, there are plenty of opportunities to impress and spread the word about your Pink Zebra business. But the proper etiquette is needed!
Your Holiday Etiquette Do’s and Don’ts
Whether you’re hosting or attending a holiday party this season, it’s important to put your best etiquette foot forward.
First, when creating an invitation list to a holiday party, give thoughtful consideration to the blend of people you’re inviting. Will all those attending get along with each other, or are there potential friction points, like a couple that’s broken up or two former friends who no longer associate?
Second, if you decide to serve alcohol at your holiday party, make sure to take precautions. For instance, it’s important that you talk to your insurance company to make sure you understand any potential liability on your part when it comes to providing alcohol to others in your home. It might be better to consider using another venue for your holiday party instead of your home and hiring a professional bartender who can help keep track of how much alcohol a guest has consumed.
Finally, when it comes to gift-giving this year, make sure everyone is in the know about who is giving who a gift. The last thing you want to do is show up at a holiday party and everyone has a gift but you. One good way to always be on the safe side this year is to keep a jar or two of your favorite Pink Zebra Sprinkles with you at all times. They fit perfectly in your purse, and they are a gift that anyone can enjoy!
