Gearing Up for Great Get-Togethers

After our snowpocalyptic Winter and off / on start to Spring, the weather has finally up and that means people will soon feel like entertaining again! You can get ready for the season by joining us for a special luncheon on May 20th from 11:30 - 1:30 at the Ritz-Carlton Tyson's Corner, Entyce Restaurant.

Discover your personal party style with Anna Post, great-granddaughter of etiquette expert Emily Post. The $95 ticket includes an autographed book of the newly released Great Get-Togethers, by Anna Post. Proceeds benefit Childhelp of Virginia. Bring your girlfriends and join us for this once-in-a-lifetime luncheon. Register today!

In the meantime, celebrate National Etiquette Week (really!) by brushing up on sage advice by Emily, Peggy and Anna Post with these great books at The Dandelion Patch. Titles range from the simply titled Emily Post's Etiquette to The Etiquette Advantage in Business, Wedding Etiquette, and Emily Post's The Guide to Good Manners for Kids and many more.

Good etiquette never goes out of style, and later generations of the Post family have updated Emily's wisdom with some modern day dilemmas including whether an emailed thank-you is acceptable for a gift and "techno-manners" for the entire family.

Even if you don't need the books for yourself, they make terrific gifts for soon-to-be graduates who are getting ready to leave the nest and may need a few gentle reminders once Mom is no longer nearby. Who knows, you might even receive a thank you note for such a gracious gift!

Enjoy the Spring weather, and remember to mind your "p's" and "q's!"
