Emily’s Etiquette and Event Guide

Social Etiquette

  1. Upon invitation, remove your coat and sit down.  It is rude to look like you’re about to leave.
  2. Build on your friendships to create a large social network.
  3. Always have a plan ready for the day.
  4. Ask what is new in people’s lives.
  5. Offer a drink when people arrive.

Keeping a Household

  1. Keep fresh flower centerpieces and candles on all appropriate surfaces.
  2. Always have polite, quiet conversation ready for the dinner table.
  3. Classical music in the background is always pleasant.
  4. Pretty china and tea cups can make a dessert seem more special.


  1. Celebrate life’s little accomplishments (like Rory getting into Chilton).
