I just received an advance copy of Jimmy Ng’s new book, Creative Napkins & Table Settings, and I’m already practicing my napkin folding skills!
I met Jimmy several years ago when I was the guest speaker at a Domestic Estate Managers Association (DEMA) meeting. He came up to me after my presentation and introduced himself. At the time, he was an estate manager for a prominent family in Palm Beach and had no plans to write a book. I immediately liked his spunk and personality.
Several weeks later, I invited him over to my house for tea and cupcakes (he brought the homemade cupcakes) and we discussed his love for napkin folding and beautiful table settings.
I said, “Jimmy, you need to write a book.” Little did I know that he would take my advice seriously. He was approached by Schiffer Publishing and the rest is history. Not only did he write a book, he created a website, a blog, a Facebook page, and a Twitter account!
Jimmy, also known as the Napkin Wizard, has a gift for turning an ordinary table into a work of art. From garden parties to baby showers, his beautifully illustrated book is filled with decorating ideas for every occasion. It’s a must-have for anyone who loves to entertain.
His book will hit the bookstores on July 28! I hope you will pre-order your copy today. Buy one to keep and one to give away as a hostess gift. I promise, you’ll absolutely love it!
