Warm weather is the perfect invitation for an intimate gathering outdoors. Summer is a season of joy, with warm sunshine and casual lazy days. Entertaining….it’s what we all love to do in the summer time. This year’s Summer Gift Collection focuses on entertaining and great hostess gifts. The Summer Gift Collection is a highly curated collection of beautiful things for your home, for entertaining, and for gifting in style.

WELCOME TO OUR SUMMER GIFT COLLECTION!

The Summer Gift Collection

 

Outdoor Dining

 

Set your table with an elegant mix of timeless classics, charming patterns, and easy, French Country textures. New this year are the melamine plates that mimic paper plates in Red, Blue and Linen, but aren’t wasteful. I love these, and happily match them up to antique dishes. {You know how I am!}

 

 

Our Bee Plates like this continue to be a best seller! Because who doesn’t love these tongue-in-cheek plates?!

 

Summer Party.

 

Once again, yay! we’re being invited to summer dinner parties. Or lunch. or breakfast. After last year, we’re grabbing hold of any and every invitation. You too? Give the best host and hostess gifts, I guarantee you’ll be invited back!

 

Here are some of our favorite Host or Hostess Gifts:

 

FRENCH LAVENDER ANTIQUE SACHETS.

 

We just received a new collection of the Provence Lavender Sachets made in a home studio with antique French ticking and linens. They smell divine!  Each little pillow comes packaged with a tag. HINT:  our clients gift these happily to their hosts….it’s not often you can find a sachet that isn’t feminine. These fit the bill, to keep your favorite gentleman’s clothing smelling divine. {naturellement. we girls adore them too.}

TAPER GIFT SETS.

Our Luxury Taper Gift Sets come with a beautiful box of designer inspired matches, and are tied with a luxurious satin bow. Ready for gifting. I’ve brought back your favorite summer colors of SEA MIST and OCEAN, they each come with a box of shell matches.

SILK SACHET PILLOWS.

 

These are so delicious! I’ve brought back the trio of Silk Sachets scented with Vetiver, in the gorgeous Blue & White and the Delft Blue colors. Please don’t just hide these in your closets, they are beautiful enough to display in your home, and will lend a wonderful scent to your room.

 

{It’s one thing I’ve really noticed, while we had our “at home” year….how our home smells. I think I speak for all of us that if it can’t smell like a five star French chef is whipping up something in the kitchen, or a large bouquet of flowers, then an amazing potpourri or silk sachets will do the trick!}

POTPOURRI

 

An old-school way to freshen your home, and make it smell so good!  I’m amazed how much you all loved this, and imagine you are happily filling every antique blue and white vessel you own with bits of this lemony goodness.

HOME ACCENTS.

 

I love these pillows so much….I bought them for our own living room, but several clients wanted to be able to buy these too so I was able to find more.  Made in a small home studio in limited numbers, our Natural French Country Linen and Blue Stripe Pillow have an easy envelope closure, the insert is down filled.  Brings a classic, casual elegant look to any chair or sofa. Very limited quantities, these are individually made, not mass produced.

The paisley wool throw is made in England by a mill that has been producing quality wool products since 1837, they make the woolens for Burberry and Ralph Lauren. This throw will last you a life time. Cozy, for chilly summer evenings.

FLORALS

 

For summer, fresh flowers are a delight. For those places where you need a little pick up, but don’t want to buy out the whole flower shop {I always want to! But obviously can not.} a good faux floral arrangement is the answer.

 

Whether your taste is a flower filled arrangement, or an all green succulent one {the one below is one we have in our master bedroom – love!} we have a one-of-a-kind or very limited edition design for your summer rooms.

I hope you enjoy this gorgeous season! There are few more wonderful ways to enjoy the sunshine than with family and friends. Now that we are getting a more “back to normal” world again – I know our family will be hosting and toasting to life, love, friendship and family with a renewed appreciation of all our blessings! Tell and show the people you love, that you DO.
