One common etiquette practice that I have noticed (at least in my circles) to be on the decline lately is host/hostess gifts. While simply having people show up to my parties is normally all that I want, it is proper to give a gift to the person throwing the party to show your appreciation. Or, if you are staying with someone temporarily, it is good practice to give them a gift and follow up with a note to thank them for having you. I prefer gifts with a little bit of thought behind them. Gift cards are tacky, in my... Continue reading

My favorite types of parties are those that are out of the ordinary. I like to feel like I am doing something different and nouveau. One of the major things that I enjoy about these parties is the excitement, anticipation, and preparation that happen before the actual party. What is more different than the norm than a masquerade? While these can be held at a home, unless the home is Victorian or antebellum it may not jive well with the masquerade theme. Try to find a venue that has some gothic architecture.

If you have read my blog you already know that I am a big believer in giving gifts that show the recipient that you put some thought into them. My most cherished gifts are not the ones that I bought for myself (begrudgingly) with gift cards stuck into holiday-themed tin boxes. They are, for example, the silver ovaloid earrings that my stepmother gave me which say “laugh often” on the front side, and “love much” on the back. I love them because she knows me well enough to know that that saying is very important to me, and that shows... Continue reading

Most women wear jewelry every day in some form or fashion. They may not wear as much as other women, or may go some days without, but accessories are an important part of the wardrobe of almost any female. No matter what her tastes, be they funky, modern, vintage, or minimalist, you can find jewelry to suit any woman. While any jewelry is... Continue reading

My friends and I like to make a tradition out of certain types of gatherings and events. One of our regulars is the annual midsummer martini party. This is a fun thing to do with a small or mid-sized group of people in mild or warm weather. You don’t want it to be cold, because one of the most important parts of the martini party is the cocktail dresses! The women must come dressed appropriately. Men can wear casual dress wear to our parties, but you can class it up a bit and require them to wear evening wear if... Continue reading
