NETWORKING, RECEPTION OR COCKTAIL HOUR…..Are you prepared?
<Smile and say, thank you or No, thank you
< You may ask what they’re serving
<Remove the crudité or canapé using the utensils provided
<Place the item on your napkin or plate
<Thank the server again
<Enjoy your selection
Keep in mind never to eat directly from the food tray. Do not remove any more than 2 items from the tray. Never place trash (picks, napkins, small spoons or dishes) on the serving tray. Find the nearest waste bin or look for a large tray designated for disposable items.
