Publisher Comments:

In Tablescapes: Setting the Table with Style and Flair, socialite, high-end event planner, and consummate hostess Kimberly Schlegel Whitman shows how to set the stage for special-occasion meals by setting a beautifully creative table with flair and panache. Featuring some of the most exquisite china, silver, and crystal, Whitman shows how she develops decorating themes appropriate for any occasion-from sit-down dinners for a few guests or buffets for many, to bridal and baby showers, holiday dinners with the family, and al fresco parties at the beach. Personalized table coverings are one of her specialties, and this book has a plethora of ideas.

Social graces and putting one's best foot forward never go out of vogue. With tips on invitations and seating of guests, plus a refresher on the most common rules of etiquette for dinner parties, this book appeals to every age, from experienced hosts to style setters of a new generation.

Kimberly Schlegel Whitman is an internationally recognized lifestyle and entertaining expert. She is the founder of RSVP Soiree, a respected special events company that advises people on the most important celebrations of their lives. Kimberly and her wildly flourishing business have been featured in national publications such as Vanity Fair, Elle, Vogue, Town and Country, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Real Simple, and Four Seasons Magazine. She is the author of The Pleasure of Your Company: Entertaining in High Style; Dog Parties; and The Wedding Workbook: a Time-Saving Guide for the Busy Bride. She lives in Dallas, Texas.
