    I threw a surprise party for my husband’s birthday. His brother didn’t RSVP and didn’t return phone calls. He screens his calls. He told us when he did show up that he was waiting to see what he was doing that day or something to that affect. How do you respond to this? I didn’t say anything but did offer a smile which could mean anything, I think.

    I had a 50th birthday party that was absolutely wonderful. I asked people to just bring a chair and to RSVP. We supplied band and food. I wanted to thank everyone that came and tell them how much it meant to me. I was wondering if that is appropriate. It was the best time and neighbors, friends, and family all mingled wonderfully and were so nice to one another and it was just the sweetest weekend. We housed alot and had campers that we tried to make as comfortable as possible. I am just so thankful and feel so blessed the way everything turned out. But is it okay for me to send a thankyou to those that came and made such a special birthday and life long memory. I have gotten a few conflicting opinions and wanted to know proper etiquette.

      You do nothing until your deadline for RSVPs comes on December 10th. Call those you have not heard from by 6pm on the 10th. If you can’t reach them that evening, assume they are a “no” and call your head count in the following morning. Why are you upset on December 3rd, when you gave your guests until the 10th? If you wanted to know sooner, you should have given an earlier deadline.
