Hosting Hints: How to Cancel an Event

by Richie Frieman and Amanda Thomas

Ask the Experts: How to handle cancelling a dinner party or event?

Domestic CEO: With simple honesty. Don’t make excuses, just let your friends know, as soon as you can, why you can no longer host the event. If they are close enough friends, they will be understanding of your situation.

Modern Manners Guy: You said it, Amanda! I totally agree. Be upfront. No stories and no excuses. You can celebrate another time.
