Monogrammed Tea Towels

April 24, 2017

If you're a Southerner or you're the least bit preppy, you likely have something with your monogram on it.  Over the years I've bought Tom monogrammed cufflinks, Jack all sorts of monogrammed clothing, and I even had our Christmas stockings monogrammed, but after thinking about it I have  very few items that have been monogrammed for myself.  I discovered South of Libbie (a Charleston-based Etsy shop run by the sweetest girl named Christine) on Instagram over a year ago and I have been in love with her feed and her beautiful monogrammed items ever since.       

Spring is the time of year where I feel like everything should be crisp and colorful, and I'm obsessed with these monogrammed tea towels from South of Libbie.  I got one made for myself and one for my mom for Mother's Day (using our married monograms so as not to exclude the men).  They're perfect for displaying in a powder room or on a bar cart, or even when used with a simple pitcher of water.  Add a few flowers and you have a perfect pulled-together look on your hands.  Mine has the navy monogram in Elizabeth font, and my mom's is periwinkle in Caroline font. Christine also has an amazing ginger jar monogram that I'm swooning over, in addition to beautiful cocktail napkins and dinner napkins.

And guess what!  I was given an exclusive South of Libbie coupon code to share with y'all!  Use code WHIMSY15 (from now until Sunday, April 30th) when you check out and you'll receive 15% off of your purchase AND you'll receive your items in time for Mother's Day (if you're still looking for a gift for your momma).

  1. I was never a huge fan of monogramming but I am loving these tea towels, they are simple and I love that.

    1. I agree, monograms aren't for everyone. I think you either love them or hate them. Some people go a little crazy with then, but these are a nice subtle way to incorporate one. I saw one on a house the other day and thought that was a bit too much :)

  2. Ah, I love these. Getting some for my Hawaii house!
