I received a call from a dear friend needing immediate help. She was on her way to a party to say farewell to a colleague. In a panic, she realized she did not have a gift. She began to wonder if she even needed to give a gift due to receiving the invitation a few days before the party. The answer is yes and here is why. She accepted the invitation; therefore it is her responsibility to follow appropriate etiquette.
When you accept the invitation to attend an event such as a farewell party, you should:
What gifts are perfect for a farewell?
Anytime you accept an invitation to anyone’s home, you should always bring something. A food item, a bottle of wine or flowers. Don’t under estimate the power of a nice bouquet of flowers.
Have a question about proper etiquette? Don’t be shy. Ask me, I am here for you.
