Celebrating Our 100th Post!
Happy New Year!
We are celebrating at Gracious Living Guide!
This is our 100th post!!!!
When we started Gracious Living Guide, our goal was to share our love for entertaining, etiquette, travel, tablescapes, home and more. We also aimed to create a community of likeminded women who want to live better lives and add more elegance to their everyday existence.
We LOVE Sharing With You
My first post was “Tired of Being Perfect? Martha Stewart Doesn’t Live Here.” With this post we began a journey that has been fun and fulfilling. Our posts have run the gamut – from sharing a tablescape, polishing up our etiquette, sharing travel tips, creating beautiful living environments, or product reviews, all of which have been lovingly and excitedly received by you – 100 times!
Celebrating Our Gracious Girl Community
We’ve succeeded at creating a community; a community of Gracious Girls. We have learned together, expanded our knowledge together and had fun together. And it hasn’t been a one way street! Just as I have shared with you, you have shared with us your pictures, suggestions and advice and wehave loved it all.
We love it when you send US pictures!
After reading the “Build Your Own Mimosa Bar article, Gracious Girl Jeanette sent me this pic of her mimosa bar. I just love it!
Celebrating Our Awards, Accolades and Collaborations
Our hard work has not gone unnoticed. We have been featured and republished by national media outlets and organizations. We’ve garnered awards and praise from likely and unlikely sources. We have collaborated with some of the best in the business. We have truly been blessed.
This was the first of many articles featured in Huffington Post.

Our collaboration with Nakeisha Green of Petals Studio produced one of our most beautiful tablescapes yet, The Prettiest Easter Tablescape You Will Ever See.
Gracious Living in Action
Your enthusiasm for my “pet project” has allowed me to branch out beyond writing posts. We have planned, hosted and consulted on many of your weddings and parties, and set many of your tables.
We’ve hosted workshops on etiquette, entertaining and table setting, to name a few.
We even launched a “Gracious Gear” product line, which you have also supported.
Gracious Living Guide is Branching Out!
Writing this blog has allowed me a creative outlet and has allowed me to grow a business that I love. Our offerings now include:
Custom Tablescapes For Purchase
Rental Tablescapes and Tea Service
We are continuing to expand and explore other opportunities in the coming year. Stay tuned for details.
Thank You Gracious Girls For Your Support!
