YOU SHOULD TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES IF YOU ARE INVITED TO SB’S FLAT.

YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE WHAT KIND OF PARTY IT IS AND DRESS UP appropriately. IF IT IS JUST A FAMILY OR FRIENDS’MEETING , YOU CAN WEAR CASUAL CLOTHES BUT WHEN YOU ARE INVITED TO A MORE OFFICIAL ONE, IT’S GOOD TO WEAR SOME SMART CLOTHES.

Thisway YOU SHOW RESPECT TO THE HOSTS.

YOU SHOULDN’T STAY UP TOO LATE, YOU SHOULD WATCH THE HOSTS AND LEAVE BEFORE OTHERS DO IT.

IT’S NICE IF YOU PAY COMPLIMENTS CONCERNING THE FOOD OR FLAT DECORATIONS.
