Britt Ford Monogrammed Desk Set | Review & Giveaway

Extreme Makeover: Desk Edition! 

My desk is clean and organized… I like my desk, but it  was just too dull to me. I kept looking at desk accessories at many stores, but I could never find anything I was in love with. While there are many cute desk sets out there, have you noticed how expensive they are?! This girl is on a budget! I bought the letter trays below for less than $3 on clearance from Office Depot a while back, and the tins are of course from Target. I’m best friends with the Target Dollar Spot, we go way back!   

Beyond the current setup, I was at a loss, and decided to just ignore my desk. I barely used it, and it just held mail, my planner, and random books. After a few months of ignoring my desk, I receive a lovely email in my inbox from Britt Ford. She hand makes stationary for her shop, Britt Ford, and as a fellow organization junkie, she recently launched her own line of monogrammed desk accessories! I knew this would be a perfect collaboration, and I’m really excited to share this lovely lady’s products with my readers!

 About britt ford

I founded Britt Ford to pursue my passion for stationery and to turn my dreams into reality.  From design to execution, my creations are classic and one-of-a-kind. Textured paper, the color teal, and natural light are my greatest sources of inspiration. My primary muses range from personalized stationery to monogrammed coasters, plus holiday greetings and events of all sorts (weddings, birthdays, graduations, baby showers, you name it). I love things that are elegant and iconic, and my cards and products transmit happiness and love through their timeless yet unique designs.

The personal touch of a handwritten note on a handmade card is the most beautiful way to send a message. People who receive my art in the form of a card/decor feel beyond special and always remember the gesture. My goal is to help you make people happy by learning about your preferences and implementing our combined ideas into an individualized set of cards or gift. Whether you want something understated or over-the-top, my products deliver a tasteful presentation for all of your stationery and gift needs!

As a southern girl, I’m a firm believer in handwritten thank you notes and monogrammed anything, so after reading her about section, I knew this would be a perfect collaboration!

Well, I received my Britt Ford monogrammed desk set in the mail, and I was initially shocked! While we talked colors, I was still unsure what exactly would be in my desk set. I thought it would be about 3-4 products, but was so surprised when a got a large package in the mail! Y’all it took everything in me to not rip everything open. Thankfully, the fiance and I were due for dinner that night, plus pictures come out better during the day! The next day, I took everything out the box, and got to work on redesigning my desk!

Britt sent me the sweetest note, and I really wanted to share a look at her gorgeous personalized stationery! Britt must be my long lost twin, because besides pink and green, navy and gold are my second favorite color combination! Her stationary is very well made, and you can tell it is made with high quality paper.

I opened everything so carefully, my fiancé was making fun of me, and then I kept showing him every piece. Thankfully, he acted very interested! I received an awesome personalized pencil cup with something different on each side. I love the side with “She designed a life she loved.” It is one of my favorite quotes, and looking at it everyday will certainly inspire me! My only issues is that I’m going to have a hard time deciding which side I’ll want to look at! I think I’ll just have to rotate a new side each day. I LOVE that my logo’s arrows are incorporated into this as well!

I had been meaning to order new coasters, but could never decide on what I wanted. When I received this set in the mail, I was so grateful! They are absolutely adorable, so I immediately added them to our coffee table and side tables as accents!

When I first received my personalized stationery, I focused more on the actual letters, and when I noticed the envelopes I was impressed. The quality of her stationery is impeccable, this was honestly the last thing I expected in my desk set considering the time and expertise put into making them. I was so delighted to receive these gorgeous letters and envelopes, and cannot wait to send a handwritten note to someone!

 Next, I opened my magazine file which comes with personalized labels made on card stock. While I absolutely love my magazine file and adorable labels, I cannot wait for the day where I have a place big enough for me to have a magazine file for each category. I love my new labels though, and will be alternating them between what I am working on for the week.

Another surprise in my goodie box were personalized folders to go in my magazine file! I’m so glad my new folder followed my chevron obsession! I was also surprised to find a cute coffee mug to match my desk set.

    Hard to decide what my favorite color combo is. I am so in love with pink and grey together for my little girl. However, I redid my living room last year in Yellow, Teal, and Grey and love walking in the door at the end of the day to all that color. Really great giveaway (by the way). And gorgeous desk!

    Your desk looks beautiful! My favourite colour combination is black and white because it’s timeless and elegant. Lately, I have been loving gold as well, since it adds brightness and is a refreshing tone.
