Book Review | Monica Pedersen : Make it Beautiful + Giveaway

Happy new week! I want to start this week with a book review. HGTV host and designer Monica Pedersen’s Make it Beautiful, designs and ideas for entertaining at home. I met Monica last year at the LV Market and we got to chatting about her book. A year later, I am delighted to get my hands on her book.

In her familiar sparkly-style Monica Pedersen Make it Beautiful is a helpful resource and step-by-step guide to hosting beautiful and cost-friendly get togethers.

Page after page of inviting parties, staging tips, sources and recipes narrated in her signature-style.

I especially love how she personalizes each party with details, custom fabrics (dont miss the Scalamandre Zebra prints in the Black-white baby shower) and modern sensibilities catering to every taste. The luscious, full-color coffee table book is the latest go-to guide for elegant and approachable entertaining making the perfect holiday, birthday or hostess gift.

As a special treat, {well in-time for the upcoming holiday season} one reader will win an autographed copy of Monica Pedersen Make It Beautiful.
