“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” ~Emily Post
Postmodern Etiquette is a blog dedicated to celebrating manners—the everyday and the ones you dust off for special occasions. Etiquette is much more than knowing which fork to use. It’s about how you interact with friends, family, and strangers on the street. Manners and etiquette help turn ordinary actions into acts of kindness, making those around you feel comfortable.
Etiquette shouldn’t feel intimidating. Many established rules of etiquette no longer apply because they don’t relate to the lives we lead. What rules do apply? Postmodern Etiquette will cover:
- Everyday etiquette
- Business etiquette
- Wedding etiquette
- Dining etiquette
- Modern manners
