You’ve seen the stationery, and you’ve seen the guest towels. These are great places to begin with your custom monogram. It’s the first step in the direction of overall lifestyle branding.

How else can you bring a couture monogram to life? We are absolutely honored to share this modern and forward couture monogram that we created for our dear friend, tastemaker and pattern mixing visionary, Paige Minear.

Just like Paige and her vibrant personality, this monogram needed to speak to her style and her story. She is a lover of color and Chinoiserie, she is modern and classic all at once, and we believe what was created was stunning! With the inspiration of a classic pair of mid-century Staffordshire dogs, this became a true standout. It started the trend of really showing our clients that you can do absolutely anything with your crest.

Even more stunning is the way she has brought her home branding to the next level. Below, Paige has shared with us some of her personal photos of how she’s brought new life into her home with her couture monogram.

Follow along with her on her own blog, The Pink Clutch, and make sure you’re following her on Instagram as well! @PaigeMinear

Thank you so much, Paige, for not only being a great friend and a style icon to many, but for allowing us to highlight the way you’ve given such beautiful life to a couture monogram.

Everyday Etiquette No. 78 // Even when an invitation is offered in what you would consider “very far in advance” it’s your duty as a great guest to respond promptly. What an honor to be invited! EverydayEtiquette78

There’s nothing that cannot be taken into consideration when branding your life and your home with a custom couture monogram. Today’s example is not just stunning, it is deeply personal to the person who commissioned it! It includes bees, wheat, and sunflowers – an ode to their roots and traditions. Things they share with their family for centuries!

Emily created something that wasn’t just stunning, but truly remarkable. It tells a story to everyone who views it, making it more than just a monogram. It was so special – it was translated to pillows, blankets, coasters, gift tags, stationery and more! A true testament to how a simple family crest can become so much more.

We love this gentle reminder for etiquette. It’s much more important to be a wonderful and engaged listener rather than the center of every story.

Red, white, and blue – the most stunning colors for any patriotic guy or gal! With Independence Day coming up so soon, we wanted to share some fun 4th of July party recipes for some fun drinks.

Over at The Butter Half blog, they have a phenomenal idea that the whole family can enjoy. A red, white, and blue ice cream float… or, as they call it, a freedom float! We like the idea of something that even the littlest party goer can enjoy. However, you know us, we don’t mind making a little boozy ice cream float either.

Fresh berries make it a welcomed summer treat with that pop of freshness! Ice cream makes it impossible to say “no” to for anyone with a sweet tooth.

For list of ingredients and full recipe, make sure you head over to The Butter Half and see what they have to share! There are tons of recipes and great family friendly ideas. The picture looks good enough eat already – so we know once you make them, everyone will be screaming for ice cream and freedom floats 😉

A lady or a gentleman knows how to turn any conversation into a positive conversation – never one that brings others down! If gossip is going on, one must always know how to shut it down and provide dialogue with deeper meaning.
