BONUS POINTS FOR GUESTS
Be helpful, but not obsessively or insistently so.
It’s nice to ask, “What can I do to help?” But it’s also nice to take your glass of chardonnay into the living room when your host says, “Honestly, nothing right now. Go relax!”
Bring a small tote bag to corral your stuff in the living space. Especially if multiple guests are visiting, your hosts will appreciate it if your phone, book, reading glasses, and wallet aren’t strewn confusingly around the house with everyone else’s.
