Each November at Thanksgiving time, we are encouraged to give thanks. This year, we'd like to inspire you to not only give thanks, but to "flaunt" it! That's right, flaunt it, because we cannot think of a better time of year to parade your thankfulness and appreciation to all those who have touched your lives. This is the one day of the year to find the goodness in everything, to have an excuse to be grateful for all matters, both big and small, and to act kindly towards others, regardless of the circumstances.
On Thanksgiving Day, when you are with your family and/or friends, make the extra effort to show you care by following these four simple etiquette guidelines: (1) spend quality time together by removing all electronic devices so that you may be fully present, (2) focus on the positive and take the opportunity to share a few nice words with each person, (3) whether a formal or informal affair, thank your host or hostess profusely for all of their hard work, and (4) if you are a guest, follow up your verbal thanks with a thoughtful, handwritten thank you note.
At Beverly Hills Manners, we would like to take a moment to extend our gratitude for the many incredible people we have had the privilege of working with. A special thank you to our fabulous venues: American Girl Place, McCormick & Schmick's, The Montage Beverly Hills, the Beverly Hills Women's Club and The Four Seasons Westlake Village for allowing us to conduct our classes in their beautiful settings. We would also like to thank our dedicated photographer, Katie Botel, who tirelessly takes magnificent photos of our classes. A very big thank you also goes out to our team of individuals behind the scenes, Amara Poolswasdi, Heather Burgett and Sarah Allen, for ensuring that everything at BHM runs seamlessly and that we are always presenting ourselves in the most positive light. And, of course, our biggest thank you goes out to all of our clients, both those we have had the pleasure of working with and those that are prospective, for continuing to show us your interest and support.
Don't forget to read below our very special "From the Source" article from our celebrated Mayor of Beverly Hills, Jimmy Delshad.
Wishing you all a very happy Thanksgiving this year and always.
