Rules & Etiquette for Gatherings, BBQs & Backyard Parties

MUST Follow Rules When Attending A Cookout:

  • If you were not invited by the host, DO NOT show up.
  • DO NOT bring extra people if not listed on the invite. (Understand there are times when unexpected family may be visiting, etc. First analyze your situation, can these extras enjoy a day or evening being “Tourists” in your town or visiting sites nearby? If not, make sure you ask the host first before ever bringing additional guests.
  • ALWAYS ask, “What can I bring?”. Even when the answer is “no”, always still bring a bag of chips or at least a gift for the host. Our “Go-To Host Gift” is a bottle of wine.
  • Everyone has different “House Rules”. Be respectful. If you notice that shoes are taken off at the door to use the bathroom, follow suit. Same goes, if in questions when going “in-doors”, always take off your shoes!
  • Drinks. Most gatherings in this day in age are BYOB, meaning Bring Your Own Beverage. If the party has drinks served, be respectful and drink what is offered regardless of the brand or preferences. An event is not cheap to host, so be respectful!
  • Bottled Water or Red Solo Cups. Finish the bottled water before opening another, and if you’re afraid of your bottle or cup being lost in the party – use a black marker and write your initials or name on it.

This is a BIG start to being invited to future events and neighborhood BBQs! Have Fun!
