When Emily Post was wrote her first guide to ettiquette in America, most women still considered their home their main place of employment. Keeping the house clean, keeping pies on the windowsill and ensuring decor matched the season was just a part of their job.
These days, life is different and it’s rare that one is able to consider their home their primary place of employment. This hasn’t changed any desire to bring people into your home, to entertain. In fact, in this age of instant gratification, digital avatars and leaning in to have it all, the simple act of hosting a dinner party, a cocktail party or even a larger gathering like a wedding can feel like a return to a simpler time.
We all know it’s not so simple to return to a simpler time. It takes time and planning and inspiration and a whole lot of heart. Most of us have at least 2 of those 4 things, but maybe could use a bit of help with the others.
That’s where I come in.
Let me help you plan your next gathering. From menu planning to capturing your signature style to execution of the whole deal, I can make your next gathering the best it can be.
