A gathering of friends sharing a meal and lively conversation can become a welcome tradition and something to look forward to when everyone is on the same page. There are certain ingredients that make any party a success and hosting or attending a supper club is no exception. Here are my host etiquette suggestions for making your next supper club a dazzling event. (I'll be sharing Supper Club Guest Etiquette, Part II, in my next article.)
Supper Club Host Etiquette:
- Decide on the structure. Before the first supper club takes place, choose a regular time and date and stick to the schedule. It might be the first Saturday, or the third Thursday of every month, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Once everything is set, it's important to adhere to the agenda, even if some people aren't able to attend. Changing times and dates each month defeats the purpose of a "scheduled event".
