If the 2020 holiday season was the year to cancel everything, 2021 is about figuring out how to get our groove back. Weddings and bar mitzvahs have been back on for months, and families are gathering to celebrate the holidays with grandparents, aunts and uncles. But the smaller social events with friends — the friendsgivings, cocktail parties and New Year’s Eve bashes — have been slower out of the gate, as such gatherings often fall lower on the list of social priorities.

Event planners and caterers say that so far, the parties have been scaled back and the ones that are happening are organized on the fly.

And so, there are new rules for a gracious host to learn amid a pandemic. Making guests feel comfortable is no longer just about nameplates and signature cocktails. It’s also about sending invitations that give your guests as much information as possible about the gathering. What are the vaccination protocols? Will the party be outside? And it’s about providing hand sanitizer, seat spacing, disposable masks and individual plates or boxes of appetizers.
