This December, our director shared her top etiquette tips with Northern Virginia Magazine. See the full story here.

As a host, prep as much as you can in advance so your guests can actually enjoy your presence. A host should never spend the entire evening in the kitchen or manning the cocktail bar. Additionally, if you are uncertain of your guest’s dietary restrictions or how to meet them, don’t be afraid to ask.
