Teaching Wedding Planning, Event Coordination and Design, I have always promoted the lifeline of Emily Post Etiquette books. After seven years the 18th edition has launched and last evening I attended the event at Michael C. Fina to meet the fabulous Peggy Post. Along with Anna Post, Lizzie Post and Daniel Post Senning, Peggy Post created Manners for a New World. She spoke about Etiquette, the new book and table setting 101 last evening. My student Debbie Lucy and I were thrilled to attend and receive signed copies of the 18th edition, plus talk with the savant about her new book and how etiquette has evolved over the past seven years. Post mentioned “There is actually a section about social media, did you know there is Facebook etiquette”? I am not surprised!
I was also happy to meet Iva Radunovic, visual merchandiser and designer of most tabletop settings showcased in the 545 Fifth Avenue Michael C. Fina store. We chatted about inspiration and tablescaping (a Marissa Mortimer favorite topic) as well as Marissa the planner vs designer.
