Wouldn’t this be a great gift? Dip some pretty wooden serving spoons into non-toxic colored paint. Maybe a whole set for friend’s wedding shower or just a pair for Mom on Mother’s Day. The ultimate in chic hostess gifts if you ask me.

Ok, even if you are not a “place mat” person these Mattie Luxe custom creations might change your mind.

Mattie Luxe Place Mats

Sarah and I had SUPER cute custom place mats made by Mattie Luxe last year as a wedding gift for a dear couple. We designed the mats to match the palette and architecture of their home and they turned out so well. You choose the color, theme, monogram/name and all the details of your design online and then they print and mail you the place mats within a week. Nice quality thick paper place mats with the design on both sides and laminated to stand many, many years of casual meals. You can also have your design made into a lucite tray!

I think they’re a great gift for a housewarming party or a baby shower. Or as a thank you gift when staying with friends for a weekend. Or for the person you know who has everything…

Martha Stewart Mixing Bowls

by

Sarah and I are big fans of the Martha Stewart color palette and I love how she translated her signature colors into an everyday kitchen staple. These pretty Robins Egg Blue, verdant Sage Green or dusty French Grey bowls make me smile each time I grab for one.

Super functional as they don’t take up much space in your cupboard, very durable and reasonably priced at Macy’s. They are pretty enough to tote a big salad to a pot luck or pile with fruit on your counter. I think they make a lovely shower or hostess gift. Don’t forget the same colors come in mini prep bowls as well!

Sarah and Angus are tailgating at USC, deliciousness guaranteed. Drew and I are celebrating the birthday of a dear friend at a chic little french restaurant Le Petit Bistro. I’m so excited for some frites, cheese and champagne!

This book is page after page of simple yet elegant French decor. I gave a copy to Sarah for her birthday after devouring it first myself. We highly recommend this as a gift or hostess present to any other Francophiles!

Happy Weekend All!
