Today and tomorrow I will post a series of tabletops. I hope that you ENJOY them my friends.

This tablescape may be cluttered, but the hues are perfect.

So elegant...

and airy...

and over-the-top beautiful!

I hope that you enjoyed this post.  I love nothing more than beautiful tablescapes.  They make the room.

These tablescapes from Traditional Home.

Now on to Embracing Etiquette With Teresa...

When Out in Public

If you are out walking in your neighborhood and a man and his young son throw their trash on the ground – pick it up and throw it in the trashcan. Do not glare at them; just set an example.

If you are on the subway and a slouching passenger is taking up three seats and you really need to sit down, politely say “excuse me” and hope they move over. If they do not move, leave them alone. It is not worth getting into a safety issue. There are times when people bait you to start a confrontation.

If you are on a bus and some young teenagers are using four-letter words their actions should be a hint as to how to handle the situation. If they appear to be intentionally showing of, your remark would only add fuel to the fire. If they appear to be otherwise decent teenagers, you could ask them if they realized that young children were on the bus. If this doesn’t work, leave it alone.

Tomorrow we will cover the last section of rudeness, “Phone Provocations…” We will then be moving on to Dress and Grooming.

See you soon,
