Sunday 28 May 2023
Welcome, Ladies and Gentlemen.
FROM JOSEPHINE IVE
I am delighted, once again, to be celebrating with you all - International Butlers Day 2022 As my late father was a butler (more on that topic in the International Butler Times) I chose to create International Butlers Day on 28 May each year, commemorating his birthday.
Stay tuned as we will be offering some inspiration over the next few weeks in the countdown to this fabulous day - May 28th.
Remember, it’s your day too!
28 May 2023, however, is even more special as it commemorates the 102nd anniversary of his birthday.
A perfect chance to celebrate your role as a butler, to thank your butler, or your butler team for their dedication, professionalism, hard work, loyalty and commitment.
A time to pat yourself on the back!
You can choose celebrate in style with a party, a simple morning coffee, a splendid Afternoon tea, or more lavish cocktails. My favourite is a true Butlers Picnic – a crystal flute of perfectly chilled fine Champagne with the freshly cooked “fish’n’ chips” wrapped in the traditional way with newspaper! The perfect pairing! And illustrates the sharp criterial contrasts of a true butler - stylish, but ‘down-to-earth’! And Alice Lascelles article in the Uk newspaper Financial Times sums it perfectly - read it here:
A pacy newspaper has been created for your reading, about some famous and infamous fictional butlers, you can read it, then you can use it to wrap your butler’s picnic!
You can click on the image to access your PDF copy of the pages of the International Butler Times, read it on your device or print black & white A4.

HOW YOU CELEBRATE IS YOUR DECISION!
YOUR CHOICE ENTIRELY,
ITS YOUR DAY!
