With a knack for making ordinary things extraordinary, Kimberly Schlegel Whitman dreams up sohpisticated tablescapes better than any hostess with the most. She is a lifestyle expert and true Southern tastemaker we have been fortunate to come alongside for many soirées, charitable events, and coffee table books. As we dreamt up ways to inspire the autumn bride, we knew the table designs of Whitman would not disappoint this purpose.
She set this intimate, fall table for Monograms for the Home. What was expected was autumnal tones and touches of gold, but the elephant howdah monogrammed linens and crystal floral trinkets staggered amongst the centerpiece created festive points of interest. A Herend Chinese Bouquet dinner plate lay underneath the linens, reminding us the versatility of Herend‘s popular registry pattern. Many Southern brides register for the Herend Chinese Bouquet china in blue, but Whitman makes the case for the warmer tone for fall entertaining! You can shop Herend pieces here and find the beautiful china at registry favorite, Ivy House.
