Do RSVP to the event with the number in your party.

Don't 

assume they know you're coming, they don't hence the RSVP.

Do

show up on time or notify the host/hostess that you're running late.

Don't

show up fashionably late and disrupt a good party flow, the party shouldn't stop for you.

Do

bring the host/hostess a nice bottle of wine, flowers or scented candle.

Don't

show up empty handed. They took time to make a special night for everyone, show them your appreciation.

Do

hang up your coat/purse and ask about removing shoes.
