Holiday Presents everything from  scratch  or  have  it  deliv-­‐ ered,  a  pretty  table  is  a  must.  Break  out   the  silver  and  china,  and  don’t  forget  a   beautiful  centerpiece  and  more  candles.   Presentation  is  half  the  battle. Have  plenty  of  glasses  and  ice  on  hand.

Ž‘˜‡ƒ„‹‰‰Žƒ‘”‘—•†‡••‡”–„—ơ‡–Ȃ‹– becomes a  focal  point  of  the  party.  It   is  impossible  to  have  too  many  after-­‐ dinner  treats.  Think  about  adding  bulk   candy  to  the  dessert  table.  It  looks   great,  and  most  everyone  loves  sugary   treats.

3

On the  day  of  the  party,  do  a  fast  dust   and  vacuum,  make  space  for  coats   somewhere,  and  be  sure  the  window  on   the  front  door  is  clean.  Do  a  bathroom   spruce  up  (that’s  another  nice  place   ˆ‘”ƒ…ƒ†Ž‡ƒ†ƒŽ‹––Ž‡ƪ‘™‡”ƒ””ƒ‰‡-­‐ ment)  and  a  kitchen  clean  up.  Don’t   forget  guest  towels  and  fresh  soap. Finally,  take   time  to  sip  a   glass  of  wine   and  dress  up   before  your   party.  After   all,  the  host   and  hostess   are  the  star   attraction.

ith more  than  67  million  households  in  the  U.S.  owning   dogs  and/or  cats,  it’s  no  wonder  that  we  spend  an  esti-­‐ mated  $66+  billion  dollars  on  them  annually.  Of  course,   much  of  that  money  goes  to  basic  care  –  food,  grooming  and  medi-­‐ cal  –  but  most  of  us  consider  these  furry  creatures  to  be  members   of  the  family.  Because  they  are  such  cute,  cuddly  and  fun  compan-­‐ ions,  we  love  to  indulge  and  pamper  them.  So  at  holiday  time,  don’t   they  deserve  a  few  gifts  in  their  stockings  or  under  the  tree,  just  like   everyone  else?

Present-Day Etiquette

Perfect Thank  You  Notes In  this  age  of  “everything  electronic,”  perhaps  at  no  time  has  the  traditional   thank  you  note  been  perceived  as  something  so  special.   By  Tracy  Stolese

W

ith people  receiving  dozens  if  not   hundreds  of  electronic  messages   each  day  in  the  form  of  texts,  e-­‐mails   and  social  media  messages,  a  personal,  hand-­‐ written  thank  you  is  without  question  the  most   meaningful  way  to  convey  the  message  that  a   gift  or  gesture  meant  a  great  deal. Yes,  we  know,  writing  thank  yous  can  be  a  bit   overwhelming,  especially  if  you’re  unsure  of   what  to  say.  However,  it  really  doesn’t  need  to   be  complicated.  With  these  seven  quick  steps,   you’ll  be  penning  like  a  pro  in  no  time  at  all.

1

Start with  a  personal  greeting.  This  may  seem   like  “Basic  Correspondence  101,”  but  it  happens  more   often  than  you’d  think:  a  generic  thank  you  message   with  no  greeting.  A  simple  “Dear  Aunt  Sarah,”  will  work   Œ—•–Ƥ‡Ǥ

2

Begin by  stating  your  thanks.  Whether  it’s  for  a  spe-­‐ …‹Ƥ…‰‹ˆ–‘”ˆ‘”ƒ‰‡•–—”‡ǡŽ‡––Š‡‘™™Š››‘—ǯ”‡ writing:  “Thank  you  so  much  for  the  gorgeous  silver   frame.”

3

…Ž—†‡ƒ•’‡…‹Ƥ…‡–‹‘‘ˆ–Š‡‰‹ˆ–‘”‰‡•–—”‡Ǥ Again, it  may  seem  obvious,  but  it’s  important  to   let  the  recipient  know  why  you’re  writing,  and  that  you   indeed  received  the  gift  that  they  intended  for  you.  Once   again,  keep  it  simple: Dz ƒ„•‘Ž—–‡Ž›Ž‘˜‡–Š‡‰‹ˆ–…‡”–‹Ƥ…ƒ–‡–‘ȏƒ‡‘ˆ•–‘”‡Ȑ …  it’s  my  favorite  store!” Dz …ƒǯ––‡ŽŽ›‘—Š‘™—…Š ƒ’’”‡…‹ƒ–‡†›‘—”‘ơ‡”–‘ watch  the  kids  on  Saturday  night.”

4

Let them  know  why  you  liked  it  and  how  you’ll  use   it.  It  means  so  much  to  the  giver  if  they  can  envision   your  enjoyment  of  their  gift:

Sugar Paper  thank  you  notes.

“We plan  to  use  it  to  display  one  of  our  very  favorite   photos  from  the  wedding.” “It  seems  like  it  has  been  forever  since  Joe  and  I  had   the  chance  to  enjoy  a  dinner  out  with  just  the  two  of  us!”

5

Make a  connection  to  the  future.  Mention  a  time  that   you’ll  be  in  touch  again,  or  in  the  case  of  a  business   thank  you,  state  the  next  steps  you  intend  to  take: “I  look  forward  to  seeing  you  at  the  family  reunion  in  a   few  weeks.” “Let’s  make  plans  to  grab  a  glass  of  wine  when  you   have  a  break  in  your  schedule.” “I  will  follow  up  with  you  next  week  to  see  where  you   are  in  the  interview  process,  and  whether  I  might  pro-­‐ vide  you  with  further  information.”

Q.  How  did  a  fun  girls’  night  out  16  years  ago  lead   to  the  launch  of  your  Lolita  glassware  line? I  was  an  exhausted  young  mom  and  needed  a  drink!  My   friends  and  I  went  to  the  Peabody  Hotel  in  Memphis,  TN.  We   ”‡…‡‹˜‡†‘—”Ƥ”•–Â?ƒ”–‹Â?‹Â?‡Â?—ǥƒÂ?†™‡‡ƒ…Š‘”†‡”‡†ƒ†‹ˆ-­â€? ferent  one  (we  were  huge  “Sex  and  the  Cityâ€?  fans).  I  noticed   Š‘™‡ƒ…Š†”‹Â?Â?•‡‡Â?‡†–‘Ƥ–Â?›ˆ”‹‡Â?†ǯ•’‡”•‘Â?ƒŽ‹–‹‡•Ǩ ˆ–‡”™‡‰‘–‘—”†”‹Â?Â?•ǥ ƒŽ•‘•ƒ™Š‘™’”‡––›–Š‡†‹ƥ‡”‡Â?– drinks  were  –  each  unique  in  its  color  –  but  I  also  thought  the   drinks  looked  “naked.â€?  With  my  art  and  marketing  back-­â€? ground,  I  was  ripe  for  starting  a  business.  After  working  for   Donna  Karan,  I  knew  what  it  took  to  launch  a  product  line   and  I  wanted  to  be  a  licensed  designer,  so  I  already  had  a   goal.  Then,  I  had  a  light  bulb  moment!  As  I  sipped  my  Cosmo,  I   thought,  “Wow,  I  can  see  this  plain  glass  turned  into  a  piece  of   artâ€?  and  that  each  glass  should  have  a  recipe  on  the  bottom.

I  started  to  sell  my  hand-­â€?painted  martini   glasses  to  friends,  who  started  collecting   –Š‡Â?Ǥˆ‡™Â?‘Â?–Š•Žƒ–‡” ‰‘–Â?›Ƥ”•– retailer,  then  I  took  my  product  line  on   the  road  to  wholesale  trade  shows,  and   voilĂ   ‌  the  sales  just  rolled  in!  I  subse-­â€? quently  became  licensed  in  2004,  when  I   Designs  by  Lolita   went  international.  (My  products  are  now   mouth-­â€?blown,  hand-­â€? painted  “Flip  Flopsâ€?   manufactured  and  distributed  worldwide   Pilsner  glass. by  Enesco.)  A  well-­â€?dressed  little  female   Â?‘Â?•–‡”™ƒ•„‘”Â?ÇĄǤ ÇŻÂ˜Â‡•‘Ž†Í•ÍœÂ?‹Ž-­â€?

A World  of  Fair  Gifts Items  from  around  the  world  produced  through  Fair  Trade  practices   help  artisans  and  villages  globally.

A

s savvy  consumers,  we’ve  become  more  interested   in  the  provenance  of  products  we  purchase:  where   they  come  from;  how  they’re  made;  whether  they’re   produced  under  socially  responsible  conditions,  and  so  on. When  we  buy  products  that  are  made  in  America,  certain   standards  apply  to  working  conditions  and  wages  for  the   workers.  However,  with  items  made  overseas,  such  regulated   standards  may  not  be  in  place.  That  is  where  Fair  Trade  comes   into  play.  

What is  Fair  Trade? Fair  Trade  is  an  ethical  approach  to  doing  business.  According   –‘–Š‡ ƒ‹””ƒ†‡ ‡†‡”ƒ–‹‘Ȃ‘‡‘ˆ–Š‡‘”‡‹ƪ—‡–‹ƒŽ ƒ‹” Trade  organizations  –  to  claim  that  something  is  “Fair  Trade”   made  means  it  should  be  produced  under  certain  conditions,   including: ȈCreating  Opportunities  for  impoverished  farmers  and   artisans,  and  establishing  relationships  respectful  of  their   culture.  

ȈBuilding Capacity  of  farmers  and  artisans  to  build  busi-­‐ nesses  and  create  sustainable  supply  chains.   ȈPaying  Promptly  and  Fairly  by  discussing  costs  and  pric-­‐ ing  to  ensure  living  wages.   ȈSupporting  Safe  Working  Conditions  free  of  discrimina-­‐ tion,  forced  labor,  and  exploitative  child  labor.   ȈCultivating  Environmental  Stewardship  to  encourage   responsible  use  of  resources  and  eco-­‐friendly  production.   “Unlike  companies  who  dabble  with  corporate  social  respon-­‐ •‹„‹Ž‹–›ƒ•ƒƒ”‡–‹‰‡ơ‘”––‘ƒ’’‡ƒ”‡–Š‹…ƒŽǡ–Š‡ ƒ‹””ƒ†‡ Federation  is  a  community  of  businesses  dedicated  to  360°   Fair  Trade,  the  deepest  commitment  to  fair  trade,”  states   Chris  Solt,  executive  director  of  the  Fair  Trade  Federation.

Is It  Really  Fair  Trade? If  a  producing  company  is  not  a  part  of  the  Fair  Trade  Federa-­‐ tion,  look  for  additional  information  and  ask  questions.   Martin  Huennekens,  owner  of  Pilgrim  Imports  –  which   has  been  selling  Fair  Trade  gift  items  for  more  than  30   (Continued  on  page  58)

years,  advises:  “To  know  what  is  really  Fair  Trade,  ask  the  right   questions  about  the  product  and  its  provenance.  Do  not  just  be-­� lieve  everyone  who  uses  it  as  an  advertising  slogan.�  For  example,   you  might  ask  if  there  are  pictures  and  details  about  the  artisans,   and  where  you  can  get  more  information  on  the  product’s  com-­� pany  or  organization. 2

Why  is  Fair  Trade  Important?   Fair  Trade  ensures  “good  wages,  safe  working  conditions,  environ-­â€? mental  responsibility  and  more.  It  means  our  partners  are  empow-­â€? ered  to  build  strong  businesses  for  their  families  today  –  and  for   generations  to  come,â€?  observes  Solt. 1 Adds  Huennekens:  “Fair  Trade  really  matters.  You  can  and  do   Â?ƒÂ?‡ƒ†‹ƥ‡”‡Â?…‡‹Â?’‡‘’Ž‡ǯ•Ž‹˜‡•Č?™Š‡Â?›‘—„—› ƒ‹””ƒ†‡ ‰‘‘†•Č?Ǥ ÇŻÂ˜Â‡•‡‡Â?Ć¤Â”Â•Â–ÇŚÂŠÂƒÂ?†–Š‡‰‘‘†–Šƒ–‹–…ƒÂ?†‘‹Â?ƒ˜‹ŽŽƒ‰‡ƒÂ?† for  its  people.â€?
