Our friends are our friends because we like being around each other. And we want people that like being around each other when we throw a party. And most times, that’s perfectly fine and all we need to have a wonderful event. But next time you’re working on a guest list for a dinner party, and want to switch things up a bit, consider inviting a table-full of people who don’t know each other very well (or at all). Everyone will have the common ground that they know you, so no need to worry about anyone feeling left out. And it’s a wonderful thing to see, after sharing a lovely meal together, a group of newly-connected folks continuing to chat with each other as the hours get wee and the wine levels get low.
Till next time,
