Something I wish more people did at parties: ask if two people you know also know each other. If the answer is no, introduce them.
It's really not that hard to make people feel included.
@cattsmall One of my goals is to learn to introduce my friends the way that my friend George once introduced me. He remembered a bunch of cool things I'd done (that I had forgotten about) and made me sound and feel like a rockstar. And then he turned and did the same for the person I was meeting. It was kind of amazing.

@cattsmall I remember a really unpleasant 2012 furcon experience where my GF and I were sharing a room with this couple who turned out to be...uh, rather different in manner in person than online. one aspect that I remember bugging me was that they never introduced Daria and myself to people they already knew. One of those things you can't *insist* upon, but bruising to one's self-confidence to be left completely out of a string of casual meetings
