Usually, its just a matter of playing to welcome guests as they arrive or mingle over drinks, in which case I play my standard reception set consisting of a range of more or less well-known Scottish tunes.  Sometimes I am asked to play a set eg for jig such as the Duke of Atholl's Reel or the Gay Gordons.  In the latter case my usual set is Mairi's Wedding, Brown-Haired Maiden, The Badge of Scotland and the Barren Rocks of Aden.
