Getting invited to another person's house for an event can be exciting. It can be nice to spend time doing something out of your normal routine, and the company of others can be a great chance of pace. However, when you are attending an event held by another person, it is important to remember your manners, so if you are unsure how to be polite when entering another person's house, here are some tips.

1. Take off your shoes when entering.

Look to see if the owner wears shoes on his or her carpet or takes off his or her shoes at the door. You don't want to be the only one walking on the carpet with muddy shoes.

2. Use please and thank you often.

Try to use please and thank you at the appropriate times to show respect to the host and his or her guests. This can show that you are appreciative.

3. Listen.

Instead of using the whole time to talk, make sure you listen to others and respond to their stories. This can help you learn about those around you and show the others at the party respect.

4. Avoid saying anything negative about the food that is served to you.

Even if the food that is available isn't your normal cuisine, try to be polite to the host. He or she probably put a lot of work into setting up the event.

Going to another person's house for a party can be a lot of fun, but you always want to use your manners. If you use the proper respect, you may be invited back next time, and you might gain a couple extra friends.
