We invite friends to gatherings because we like these people. We don't invite people to show off, to plan a perfect "event" or fancy meal. Yes, it can hurt your feelings when people are not properly excited, grateful, or attentive to your party planning efforts, but from these comments it sounds like too many of you are planning these event primarily for your selfish enjoyment and giving little attention to how your friends and their guests may want to plan their life, spend their time, or interact with you. If you really like your invitees, you should cut them some slack and stop acting like the world revolves around you and your event. It's just as rude to invite people and then treat them like naughty children for not playing your party games exactly when and how you designed them (the turning people away at the door thing just blew my mind, it was so insufferably rude).
