Learn holiday entertaining do’s and don’ts through free etiquette seminar at Replacements, Ltd.
GREENSBORO, N.C., November 6, 2008 – You spent the entire day cooking the perfect holiday feast. But it’s an hour before your guests arrive and you find yourself standing in front of the table, listening to a little nagging voice in your head. Does the knife go on the left, fork on the right, or is it the other way around? Is that centerpiece too tall? Should I go ahead and put food on the table before my guests arrive, or do I wait until everyone gets here?
Just in time for the holiday entertaining season, Replacements, Ltd. is offering insight on proper table manners and how to host the perfect festive meal through a free seminar scheduled for Saturday, December 6. Whether you are a host or a guest, Replacements’ etiquette coach, Jill Slatter, has great inside advice on dinner table do’s and don’ts and the lost art of fine dining. “Think back 15 or 20 years ago, families gathered every evening for a proper meal,” says Slatter. “Unfortunately these days we’re all stretched so thin juggling work, school and home that most folks do not have time to sit down together, so when the holidays roll around no one’s sure how to act at a formal setting.” Replacements’ experts are bombarded with questions this time of year from folks looking for a crash course in proper table manners. The etiquette seminar will be held at 11 a.m., December 6 at Replacements’ showroom located just off I-40/I-85 (exit 132) at 1089 Knox Road, McLeansville, N.C. The event is free but advance registration is requested due to limited space. To sign up or for more information, contact Replacements at 336.697.3000, ext. 2233 or
