Hosting and Guest Etiquette: A Comprehensive Guide

When hosting guests, it's essential to prepare your home before their arrival, greet them warmly, and thank them for coming. Let them go first in various situations, such as entering or exiting your home, or at a buffet. Take the time to show them around if they're new to your place and introduce them to everyone to ensure inclusivity. Be sociable and flexible with activities, and if you receive a call during a meal, politely inform the caller that you'll get back to them after eating.
As a guest, always be friendly and courteous to your host, their elders, and fellow guests. Avoid helping yourself to anything unless invited to do so. Offer assistance with cleaning up after meals or in case of any mess. And, of course, express your gratitude before leaving.
