We’ve made it to Day 3 of the Mistletoe Make & Bake Blog Hop…are you on a sugar high yet from all these yummy cookie recipes? You’ll hit the jackpot today with fun project downloads from Celine at Perkins Dry Goods, Patrick Lose and Kelly Ann from Kelly Ann’s Quilting, and don’t forget we’ve all got great cookie recipes for you so don’t skip anyone!
Today’s theme is cocktail party conversation starters (or how to avoid standing in the corner alone!) Two words…don’t go! Just kidding…but seriously, I’d rather have a tooth pulled than to have to go to a cocktail party with lots of people I don’t know, mixing and mingling over drinks and party conversation…not my favorite activity.
My cocktail party strategy? Find someone else standing alone, looking as uncomfortable as myself, and strike up a conversation with them. I’ll usually start out with a comment about the food or the decor or something innocuous like that, and then ask the person something about themselves…people love to talk about themselves!
Most importantly, always have an exit strategy! There’s nothing worse than being stuck in a conversation with someone you don’t want to talk to (except standing in the corner alone, of course!) I’ll usually just say I need to find the ladies room and excuse myself.
