Tricks to Survive Family Gatherings

Tuesday, 04 December 2018 17:11  by Molly P.

Plan, prepare, create and give to help ensure wellness before and after a family gathering.

Plan

Gatherings roll smoothly when there is a conversation and entertainment plan like games, fun videos, a news board etc.

For a much better chance of success, have a plan A and plan B in case things suddenly go quiet and awkward.

Prepare

Design a task list for your guests who want to help. They can scatter cozy throws, pretty pillows, flowers and candles.

A good hostess does best when she accepts help and has all hands busy under her direction.

Create

Create a music playlist in advance.

Always have at least one exciting Mocktail. Read on for a couple of recipe ideas.

Give

The best guest greets the host and thanks her before leaving and never wanders around areas without permission.

Be generous with compliments and accept any with grace.

Gatherings end positively when all assist with the clean-up.

Remember

A person remembers how you make them feel!
