Last month I was thrilled to work with the fabulous hosts of Home & Family on their fine dining skills just in time for the holidays and I'll be returning to the set on December 11th for more holiday etiquette fun! View complete segment here.
The holidays can be a tricky time to navigate. With various fêtes to attend it's difficult to know who to gift, what to give and how much to spend. Retailers Winners, HomeSense and Marshalls enlisted my help to answer some tough holiday gift-giving etiquette questions and quandaries. Click here for complete article.

What a whirlwind of a year! It's hard to believe it's already time to bid farewell to twenty-fifteen. As we reminisce on the past twelve months, we are filled with appreciation for the absolutely amazing clientele of families, individuals and businesses whom we've had the honor of working with and to our friends who have whole-heartedly supported our efforts all year long. We also must acknowledge our fabulous venues, the Four Seasons Beverly Wilshire, Bedford & Burns, Fleming's and Morton's Steakhouse restaurants for their gracious partnership.

This month only, we are pleased to offer a special 15% holiday discount on private individual and group instruction, as well as gift certificates. Contact us to send a certificate to that special person in your life or to book a reservation for yourself or your group.

As the holiday shopping kicks into high gear, don't forget to purchase a paperback copy of Beverly Hills Manners. It makes the perfect host gift, stocking stuffer, and/or accompaniment to any larger gift or gift card purchase. Attach a handwritten note and your thoughtfulness will be remembered for years to come. 

Wishing all a shiny and bright forecast for 2016. May it be filled with an abundance of health and happiness! 

With gratitude and warmest regards,
