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

The Royal Baptism

Today is a special day for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, their first born is having his baptism. Here is a small snippet from The School of Flaunt Handbook, Lesson Seventeen: SOF Womb to Tomb. 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 probably President of the United States, or that the next CEO of Microsoft has arrived, or a future King, but it is just soooo 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 three year old. Meanwhile Mommy and Daddy can bask in the lime 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. We must add here that at no time do we want to see hallways, lined with "Photos" of the children. Yes you may have photos on top of your grand piano or in the library but NEVER lining the walls. Terribly declasse! And secondly if you are doing a video this is not the time to experiment with amateurs. Your neighbor's child might be adorable, your brother-in-law clever with a camera, but remember, you are creating history here!

Normally these events are strictly for family and a number of close friends as The Duke and Duchess have done for their son's christening. So as for keeping the peace so to speak, if you want to have your guests bring their children, please have a separate room for the children to eat in and also be entertained. REMEMBER, the adults are sipping the bubbly, eating caviar on blinis, engaging in pleasant conversation, listening to some wonderful music from a harpist and possibly enjoying your gardens. The children should be playing games, eating chicken nuggets and fries and chasing one another around in a FAR-AWAY room. Not that we don't like children, but there are times when "they do not need to be seen or heard," a quote from Lady Beatrice Beegleman. We at The School of Flaunt only wish we had a dollar for every time our parents brought up Ms. Beegleman's mantra.

We truly hope that all of you will enjoy this milestone in your life. For more helpful advice from you 21st century advice givers extraordinaire at The School of Flaunt, please consult our book, The School of Flaunt Handbook. And do have a flaunt fabulous day! Alexandra Smythe and Cate Clarke
