"Home for the Holidays with Mrs. Layeni - Holiday Dining Etiquette" is a winter program of The Yellow Rose Junior Cotillion. It is open to boys and girls between ages seven and 17.  And, because it is held during such a special time of the year, we will end with a beautiful four-course holiday luncheon!

Amidst fresh flowers, fine china and crystal in an elegant setting, your child will learn the rules of dining etiquette, personal protocol and social grace from a credentialed etiquette expert. 

Mrs. Layeni's classes are authentic, impactful, and fun! Students have a ball mastering their growing worlds through role playing, discussion, hands-on activities and more.

Manners, poise and constant use of social etiquette remain important, and are the centerpiece of our curriculum. While Mrs. Layeni teaches the art of the "thank you" letter, she  also instructs her 21st-century students on today's modern world issues: bullying, online reputation management, digital etiquette, peer mentorship and cultural/diversity understanding. 

Key topics include:

  • Great First and Lasting Impression – posture, confidence, handshakes, eye contact, grooming and attire
