About Us

Combining my expertise in dining etiquette with my love of fabrics, decor, flowers and tabletop accessories, I launched Intimate Settings in 2000.


It brings me great joy to indulge my passion for planning and designing events - from consultation to completion - while allowing you to focus solely on your guests.


It is often said, "Don’t sweat the small stuff" but I have come to believe that the small stuff is what matters most.  Seeing the rich personality the smallest detail can add, I appreciate the role the umpteen details play in every event I orchestrate and every setting I stage.


Intimate Settings believes that knowledge instills confidence. Having conquered dining etiquette, no matter your income or education, you are on a level playing field with everyone at the table. Therefore we also conduct workshops, delivered as two sessions, on entertaining and social dining etiquette or business dining etiquette. 


Session one introduces and explains the rules and practices of social or business dining manners. Session two puts these skills into practice.
