Overview

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.

Personalized table coverings are one of her specialties, and this book has a plethora of ideas.
