'Mochatini's Little Book of Holiday Inspiration' by Manvi Drona Hidalgo..

How on Earth you can call an 82 page masterpiece a 'LITTLE book' is beyond me, because in my eyes it is HUGE!! This incredible (!!) creation was made by my dear and wonderful friend Manvi who blogs over at Mochatini  - the sweetest (and most stylish!) girl you can meet!

'Mochatini's Little Book of Holiday Inspiration' is not just any kind of book.. It is a tailor-made and exclusive edition that was created from scratch as a 'thank you for a great year'.. Just because this is the kind of person she is. Generous and genuine. xx

The book is copy written, typeset and laid-out by Manvi herself. All the images were styled and photographed by her, and digitally formatted so that everyone from Hawaii to Japan, and the Arctic to Antarctica can cherish it. How incredibly thoughtful and generous isn't that!!?!  It also puts the concept of 'hand made' on a whole new level!!
Manvi, I am overwhelmed with all the work you put into this and appreciate every word, picture and page! xx

As if this wasn't enough there is also a brilliant 'Ten Tips for Holiday Entertaining' guide inside - something that will make you the 'hostess of the mostess' (or a 'host to celebrate & toast'!.!) this festive season!!

Manvi's style is feminine, fresh, and elegant with a glamorous yet modern edge, and her beautiful blog spills over with examples of her fantastic styling and photography works. She has been featured in several publications and those of us who know Manvi are eagerly & lovingly encouraging her to publish a 'coffee-table book' showcasing her table top decor, styling & images. Armed with this holiday book, the publishers will fight to be the first to do so!! Hear me dear friend!!? xx

For certain she should publish, this is as stylish and well done as anything I've seen. I would add about 50 exclamation points but that's just that side of crazy so I will simply say, I agree with you completely. Lovely.

WOW !!!!
Charlotta, Thank YOU for showcasing this on your blog.
I think it would be great if she and SweetPaul would collaborate. She could set the table to "match" any and all of his dishes!!
I wonder what kind of camera she uses?!

(And loved seeing your name featured too -- I can't stand those pre-packed flower arrangements either!)
