KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend and welcome back to KCL Friday Finds! I can't believe it's back-to-school time already. Our kiddos are heading back to school this Monday, and my husband and I are ready to get on the Fall routine for sure. Soon after that, it'll be cooler weather (hopefully), more cozy nights at home, and all of the fun holidays that come with the approaching seasons.

In preparation for the Fall, I've been booking lots of product reviews and planning out the upcoming seasonal content, and I couldn't be more excited! In the coming weeks you'll see more in Fall Fashion, Fall Beauty, as well as Fall Decor. For this Friday Finds, take a little time to spoil yourself, because there are several must-have natural beauty products and some boho-chic jewelry that will transition perfectly from Summer to Autumn.

Easy Etiquette Tips for Holiday Entertaining


I learned etiquette from my mother at a very young age. She often worked at nice hotels, so I found myself at a lot of fancy dinners and Sunday brunches. I still have a little voice in my head every time I eat at the table. It says things like "napkin in your lap" and "elbows off the table." Pictured: Pier 1 Antiqued Wood Charger

With the holidays coming up, you may find yourself at a few fancy dinners. It's great to get dressed up and attend a formal dinner every now and then. Everyone is on their best behavior and in their finest clothes. Formal dining is all about things running smoothly. It's like a well-coordinated outfit, where each little piece fits together to create something impressive.

Style is just part of a formal dinner. The actual dining itself has its own rules that need to be followed. Just like with fashion, forgetting the rules can cause you to make embarrassing mistakes. If you're lucky enough to be invited to a formal event - you should feel lucky, as they are great fun - it's worth making sure you know all the etiquette you are supposed to follow.

Trying to remember all the rules can seem daunting at first, but there's not so much to learn once you get down to it. Some things are self explanatory, like not slurping your soup. Other things can take a little getting used to, like telling the difference between the water, white wine, red wine, and champagne glasses. Without having to worry about whether you are doing the right things, you'll be free to enjoy yourself. It's not often we get to dress up in our best, so make the most of the occasion. Relax, and focus on having a great time.

You may not find yourself at a traditionally formal dinner, though you'll likely wind up at a semi-formal dinner at some point. I like to set a semi-formal table whenever I have a dinner party or holiday dinner - with a separate salad plate, dessert plate, charger, wine glasses, and cloth napkins - like in the picture above. I still find that some guests don't always quite know what to do. If all else fails, remember this one little trick - start from the outside and work your way inward with the cutlery.
