I just moved into a new apartment this semester and it was instantly a perfect excuse to invite my friends over and have a good time. I brought it up with my best friend (since elementary school!) and she acted like it was a fun idea. Now, however I found out that she is also throwing a party the same day! We both have different circles of friends nowadays but still, I am a bit put off that she would snub me that way. So I want to stay classy about it all and was just wondering how Georgiana would handle this type of situation. Sincerely, Rattled in Raleigh
This sort of thing was not an unusual problem for Georgiana. In fact the Duchess of Gordon would sometimes purposely hold parties or balls to compete with a party Georgiana was throwing, just to be the vindictive tart that we know she is. Of course, being the popular Duchess that she was, sometimes even friends' parties would overlap the ones Georgiana would throw. Doing it on purpose though, now that's a Lady Jersey move! Georgiana herself was non-confrontational, and in this case nothing good will come from a confrontation.
You should remember the task at hand: being a fabulous hostess. Make some fun and delicious finger foods, start decorating, and rearrange your apartment so there is good chi in the room. In the end, you fabulous hostess skills will say more than sharp words will!
I'm no advice columnist, and I know Georgiana can't be channeled through me, but if you have a fun question you'd like to submit to What Would Georgie Do? please email it to GeorgianaGossip@gmail.com with "What Would Georgie Do?" in the subject line.
