COCKTAIL DRESSES and COCKTAIL PARTIES ARE ALL THE RAGE
Cocktail dresses are one of the hottest items of the season. While we might want to keep ourselves deep in denial , the holidays are just around the corner. Since the holidays are the most social time of the year you will need to up date your wardrobe. Of course there are many different types of social events the cocktail party is a specific one . Therefore you may want to brush up on your small talk and your cocktail party etiquette. Moreover just like your dress maybe be in or out of style , a party theme can be in or out of style. However this season seems to be the year of the cocktail party.
BE THE BEST COCKTAIL PARTY GUEST
A cocktail party is a classic social gathering. In fact I really love a great cocktail party. Of course a cocktail party may be a large affair held in a banquet hall or hotel with professional guests all the way down to a party held in a private home. Therefore you may act a little different depending on the size and nature of the party.
It begins with your arrival . Since cocktail hour isn't a sit down affair , it is fine to arrive well after it begins but never early .A host is usually fine tuning food, drinks, and set-up well into the last minute. Your early arrival will only escalate the frenzy.
COCKTAIL PARTIES MEAN COCKTAILS
Just because it's a party doesn't mean you can totally cut loose. Know your drink limit before you arrive. If you're attending primarily for networking purposes, two drinks is an appropriate maximum. Darling over-indulging is a good way to invite trouble to any gathering. A host's nightmare!
No one wants a drunk guest falling down a staircase, hitting on a VIP, or falling asleep in the onion dip. Been there done that not a pretty picture.Hence if you find yourself sipping a little too hurriedly, switch to water or soda. No one will know the difference. Another good piece of advice is stick to wine and avoid hard liquor.
COCKTAIL PARTY BOUNDARIES
Furthermore for some people, cocktails are like truth serum with a permission slip to talk to anyone who will listen. Be very careful here! People remember more than you may think, and you never know which sober guest may overhear you and spread the word. Therefore Keep all cocktail party conversations civil and never divulge anything you wouldn't be willing to place on a billboard .Avoid monopolizing a VIP's time. If you engage in one-on-one conversation, invite others to join in after a few minutes. Address with respect at all times. If you call him Mr. Mayor at Chamber of Commerce meetings, don't call him Bill at your neighbor's party.

All things considered I feel good that we will be on our best behavior . Darlings now a days most of the rules of dressing have been thrown out.
