Gracious Notes for the Spirited Hostess


All in Good Taste Book / Candle (Marshalls) / Mug / Thank You Notes (similar) / Pencils (similar)

Woohoo! We’ve made it half way through the week.

I am so excited to share this post with you because it is the start of a series that I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. At the beginning of the summer, I purchased the lifestyle book All in Good Taste by Kate Spade New York. As described on their website, All in Good Taste is “filled with how-tos, personal essays, anecdotes, recipes, and a liberal dash of style, all in good taste will transform you into the hostess everyone wants an invitation from”. The moment I purchased it, I couldn’t wait to dive in.

I decided that I wanted to recreate different parts of the book and share it with all of you right here on All in the Details & Co. If some of you don’t know, I hope to one day own my own event planning/design business possibly running my own venue as well. It’s a dream that I hope to one day make come true.

Anyway! The first part of the book talks about writing a sweet note to the hostess and thanking her for the invite and reminiscing about delicious food, great spirits and good company.

I found these cute thank you notes at Marshalls, they always have the best stationary and for a great price! To address notes, I always opt for a gold metallic pen or sharpie, I think it adds a special touch. Whenever I’m writing a special note, I like to light my favorite candle (birthday cake of course!) and pour some tea or wine, depending on the time of day ;).

This post was so much fun to put together and I’m so happy I could share it with all of you. I can’t wait to see what’s next in All in Good Taste!
