Win a copy of Kim Whitman's New Book, "Party Planner: An Expert Organizing Guide for Entertaining"

Shay Geyer hosted an intimate book signing and luncheon for Kimberly Schlegel Whitman on Monday, February 13 at her furniture store and design studio, IBB Design Group.  Normally, I would not travel to Oklahoma for event, er, I mean Frisco. But for Shay and Kim I made an exception! (I know it does not offend Shay that I make this joke because she made the same one when she thanked everyone for coming)

Author, Kimberly Whitman

Not only is Kim a 5-time book author but she has recently been appointed Editor-at-Large for one of my favorite magazines, Southern Living.  You might have also seen her on one of her many TV appearances on the "Today Show" or "Whose Wedding Is It Anyway" or maybe you've caught her daily radio show for KVIL 103.7 FM.

Shay gathered 50 of her closest gal pals to celebrate the launch of Kim's newest book, "The Party Planner: An Expert Organizing Guide for Entertaining".   In her latest tome, Kim holds your hand through creating a fun-filled soiree without stress.

Her book organizes the process of planning and hosting a party, from the earliest inception to working with a budget, choosing a venue, hiring catering and musicians, creating a guest list and invitations, decorating, seating, stocking a bar, photography, entertainment, favors and attire-in essence, organizing every last detail for hosting a successful party for any occasion.
