Please don’t tell me that you don’t like monogramming. Because if you don’t, I might have to unfriend you. My theory is: Monogram the hell out of everything! You should have seen our daughters dorm room when we moved her in several years ago. Her roommates parents looked at us and said “Does everyone in Texas monogram everything?” Yep!
Kimberly Whitman is one of the kindest, nicest and sweetest people you will ever meet. Add to that her expertise on everything entertaining you have one heck of a media darling. I absolutely adore her! So it is natural that I wanted to attend and support her 7th book launch – Monograms for the Home. To celebrate the launch, Kim hosted an intimate lunch with some of Dallas’ favorite bloggers and media darlings at John Cain Photography Studio. Each guest enjoyed salad in a mason jar catered by Koons Kitchen and swooned over the floral arrangements by Branching Out Event. And Kimberly send each of us home with our own monogramed linen from Halo Home.
Monograms for the Home offers an inside look at both the history of monograms, duograms and ciphers and the way they can be incorporated into our lives today. Kimberly’s newest book takes her readers on a journey with endless monogram options for your entryway, table, powder room, bedroom, bath, kitchen, bar, nursery, living room, and the holidays. She stresses to her readers the importance of finding the perfect monogram unique style to each individual and home.
Celebrity fans of monogramming include Reese Witherspoon, who is mentioned in the book, “My sheets are monogrammed, so is my silverware and pretty much everything else I own. My rule is if it’s not moving – monogram it.”
Lifestyle Expert and Editor-at-Large, Southern Living, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman is the author of several entertaining and event planning books including: Wedding Inspiration, The Party Planner: An Expert Organizing Guide for Entertaining, Tablescapes: Setting the Table with Style; The Wedding Workbook: A Time Saving Guide for the Busy Bride, Dog Parties: Entertaining Your Party Animal, and The Pleasure of Your Company: Entertaining in High Style. This is her seventh book.
I loved catching up with Kimberly and some of my favorite bloggers. Be sure to grab a copy of her book – click here to order. By the way, this was the perfect event to wear my new pant suit instead of a dress. The top and bottoms are so slimming and a great luncheon dress alternative. I paired this look with this new twisted collar necklace (on SALE).
What do you like to monogram? xoxo- Tanya
