As the cobbler’s children have no shoes, Forest Home Media creates hundreds of blogs for clients and the Southeastern consortium of creatives, The Southern C, and now it’s past time for a Forest Home Media blog wrap up!
Celebrate Everything With Darcy Miller
After spending time with founding editor of Martha Stewart Living Weddings, author and new fun friend Darcy Miller at the Southern C Summit and her Nashville book tour, I treated myself to her incredible book, “Celebrate Everything! Fun Ideas To Bring Your Parties To Life.”
My first thought was to find out what Martha thinks about the book. In her kind forward she shares, “I suggest you use this book for inspiration first, then as instruction….Darcy’s sources are generously shared.” When you are being inspired to take your parties to the next level, how absolutely awesome to have this how-to. Martha was spot on, #obviously.
When I’m bored, I plan parties in my head and Darcy has me spinning with ideas to try. This book could be a little overwhelming if you don’t approach it with the spirit conveyed early by the author. Even if you don’t D-I-Y it, Do-It-Together (D-I-T)! So let’s dig in to just a few of my favorite things. Click here to read more on The Southern C!
Meet RealSimple.com Lifestyle Editor Sarah Yang
As a young girl growing up in sunny Pasadena, California, RealSimple.com Lifestyle Editor Sarah Yang’s middle school aspirations included being a NYC journalist. (Love that focus and determination!) Regular meetings with Sarah is just one of the perks of being a home lifestyle publicist for me. She’s part of an impressive and inspiring field of young, professional women having a huge impact on shelter magazines especially their digital and social media operations. Find out more on what inspires her in this fun Q&A for The Southern C.
Recently, I had the pleasure of helping new Trading Places designer John Gidding with his first Facebook Live! On this blog for The Southern C, I share “Video Marketing For Your Business: 3 Platforms and How to Use Them.”
Domino Book Review
After working with Domino magazine on a Facebook Live for our March 2017 House for Hope Designer Show House, I also did a book review of“Domino: Your Guide to a Stylish Home” by Domino Editorial Director Jessica Romm Perez and Shanni Silver, Domino’s director of digital content, which was SO helpful during a spring bathroom renovation. Click here for more on the 272-page, beautiful, hardcover book that is so much more than a stylish addition to your coffee table.
