The School of Flaunt

Back when "Flying Was Fun" Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke were Flight Attendants with a Major International Carrier. Prior to Private Jets coming into vogue, Alexandra and Cate traveled in the First Class World, meeting and greeting the top celebrities, politicians who would become Presidents, nouveau riche, and yes the occasional Headline Grabbing Criminal in Handcuffs!

What the two ladies viewed and experienced became fodder for the School of Flaunt, so much money, such bad taste and oh those terrible manners. Something had to be done! Hence, The School of Flaunt Handbook was born. Read More

From Womb to Tomb: SOF Milestones

Lesson Seventeen

"SOF" WOMB TO TOMB

Milestones: Baptisms, Bar & Bat Mitzvahs,

Debutante Balls, Weddings & Funerals

When your children enter this world, if you are of a religious faith, a Baptism or Welcoming Party is a must! Not only are you announcing to the world a probable President of the United States or that the next CEO of Microsoft has arrived, but it is just Sooooo socially irresistible not to have a party for the little darling afterwards!

We would suggest a tea dance with the baby present for the receiving line and then his or her Nanny can take the baby home. Remember the little darling will get tired and frankly there is nothing more annoying than a tired, cranky baby or possibly a 3 year old. Meanwhile Mommy and Daddy can bask in the limelight, sip some bubbly and mingle with their guests.

A small aside here, this is a great way to start the family history with photos placed in sterling silver frames that can be passed down for generations to come. May we also add that a small oil painting of the baby would be lovely too but please students do not and we repeat "do not" line the walls of your hallways with "photos" of the children.

Yes, you can you have a number of photos on top of your baby grand piano in the formal living room, or in your study on the book shelves, but never lining the walls! Terribly déclassé' and please, if you are doing a video this is not the time to experiment with amateurs. Your cousin's best friend might be good with a video cam, but remember, we are creating history here.

Of course there will be numerous birthday parties, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, graduation affairs, Deb parties and an engagement party to round out any child's life.

Students, there is simply NO END to the privileged information you will garner from the School of Flaunt Handbook on Milestone Events! Priceless indeed.

What Milestones have your family participated in? Please describe in detail as one can never stop the creative juices flowing for the Historic Events you shower on your loved ones.

Air Kisses,

Smythe and Cadbury-Clarke

I attended a beautiful wedding shower/brunch several years ago that was just fabulous. Outside, tables layered in white cloth, flowers on the table, beautiful crystal and silverware - just perfect. With all the trimmings, the best part was the "box of wishes" that her mother created. She found her daughter a vintage box, purchased beautiful paper and handed out pens and paper to all the guests. We wrote messages of love and hope and placed them in the box for her to keep and remember "her special day." Today, 15 years later, she still reads the messages to remind her of how in love she was and the promise of an unknown future. I thought it was so touching. These are the SOF things that cost us nothing and mean everything!
