As colorful and as sweet as the confections you put inside, these Cupcake To-Go Carriers are a great after party or lunch time packing idea! They are available in seven different colors, and at just $3.49 each, you can send guests home with their very own sugar rush without the mess of cellophane and toothpicks. Bring on the sprinkles! Available at Fox Run Brands.
If you carry more than a few bottles of vintage ports, you may be interested in devoting an entire (climate controlled) room to storing and tasting wine. A wine cellar is great for increasing the value of your home, and looks spectacular when done as well as the Wine Cellar featured in the Ski Magazine Dream home designed by Utah’s favorite Michael Upwall.
We celebrated the long weekend with BBQ’s and playing in the sun with our now toddling toddler. There is just something about this hot weather that has me breaking out the fun colors! These four mouthblown tumbler glasses have such a fun shape! Aptly named the Hula Tumbler glasses, they roll and swirl as playfully as their colors imply.
After a lovely visit to the incredible spa at the Muskoka resort; Red Leaves, I am looking for a beverage server like the ones they had dotted conveniently around the spa rooms. Cool iced water with fresh fruits like citrus and strawberries is served ever so graciously in glass beverage servers.
The warm weather has been unseasonably generous lately, the flowers are blooming and I see two birds outside my window today who seem to be seriously considering to build a nest in my growing red maple tree. Few other creatures have been ornamented with such gorgeous colours and vivid plumage! Welcome all my feathered friends, this one is for you!
The fresh colors of the “Chirp” dinnerware by Lenox is a bold watercolor blast of color to get you out of the winter doldrums. Oh robins’ egg blue and flushed corals can get me right back into Spring.
Ah yes, the season of celebrations has commenced. I look forward to a parade of intimate dinners with family and friends, as I’ll be celebrating ten birthdays, anniversaries, Thanksgiving and finally Christmas (it is coming sooner than you think)! For dressing our tables for these more formal parties, wouldn’t these individual butter dishes be a perfect table accessory? Take a look, these dishes range from $5 to $420, can you tell which is which?
The Edda Carafes are simplistic and pure in design. Kiri wood balls sit atop the clear glasses, which could be used for water on the night table, or whatever purpose you may find for these pretty little things. They come in a set of three starting at 7.5″ tall to 11″. From Anthropologie.
I love the feathered quill design on this hansome flatware design, even though I have a hard time thinking about the term feathered in a positive way now (I was the feathered hair child of the 80’s for a long time). Pottery Barn’s own very own design is a great transitional flatware that can go from casual to glamorous depending on the dressed table.
Haute Surface Cork Tiles in Houndstooth is a delicious blend of the classic houndstooth pattern in chocolate and natural colored cork. Pop the pieces together to puzzle a surface large enough to set a casserole dish or copper pot. The interlocking cork tiles come in a set of 12 for $20.
I am not sure what it is about the fun and colorful Fiesta dinnerware that has me so enamored, but I find it irrisistable, and I am slowly building my collection. New to the Fiesta family is the color Lemongrass. It seems that the punchier-than-celadon green is gearing towards the younger crowd that is new to Fiesta, and sure to be future devotees joining in with the large population of longtime patrons to the USA made brand. Lemongrass is now available in stores.
