Monogramming 101

It's been a while since a giveaway, so I decided to start Monday with a fun contest to brighten the start of your week! Since 2005, The Silken Thread has been offering high quality embroidered and personalized gifts to loyal customers. Recently, I was honored to join Laura at her 5 year anniversary celebration.



With a wide range of products from everything from a personalized lollipop to silver earrings, you're sure to find the perfect gift at the Silken Thread. Among my favorites are the high quality linens that would make an ideal wedding or hostess gift. Laura has many fantastic ideas and has a great eye for design!

Anything can be monogrammed! The more unique, the better. Kristen had given me an adorable pink and green monogrammed market tote in a swap last year to carry my groceries and I had it in JJH's car. On Saturday, someone went to get a chair out of the trunk and noticed the bag, knowing that it belonged to me. Gee, what gave that clue? The signature pink and green or the BBL monogram?

My girls always locate their backpacks, lunch bags, and dance gear easily with the monogram. For about the past year, they've decided that they want things monogrammed instead of embroidered with their names. They seem to think that the monogram is more "grown up." The Silken Thread has a collection of elegantly monogrammed children's wear including onesies, jon-jons, and dresses.

You can enter to win a set of preppy monogrammed coasters. In uber preppy pink and green, I just love these single initial coasters. Three lucky winners will receive the letter of their choice that is in stock at The Silken Thread.

There are many ways to enter, so be sure to leave a comment with how many entries to give to you! The contest is open to Maryland Pink and Green followers and ends at midnight on Sunday, October 10. I'll announce the three winners on Monday, October 11 after winners are chosen at random. To participate, leave a comment telling me your favorite item to monogram and the reason why you like this item monogrammed.

  12. Ooops, I forgot to ad that the Monogrammed Dinner napkins were my favorite item. Without question would the single initial. This just makes the place setting perfect in my eyes.
