Cheers to the Long Weekend

29be2ec27457271086a483d51a97ff70Cheers to the long weekend ahead!

There’s excitement in the air around here. School’s almost out, summer is around the corner, the pools are open and we all get an extra day to relax for Memorial Day. I obviously love a flag motif, so I am really lusting after these 3 dimensional, hand embroidered flag cocktail napkins from couture linen designer, Julia B.

And, now you have to have a delicious drink to go with your flag cocktail napkins, so enter the Strawberry Elderflower Champagne Cocktail. Add a couple of skewered blueberries and you’re all set!571c639a0f235ff4345cd232262ad48e52958e21I’m raising a glass (and waving a flag) to all of you! Have a safe and happy Memorial Day Weekend!

Since 2014, Lettermade has been making linens with personality. In addition to designing cocktail and dinner napkins with monograms, they have made their mark by creating witty icons and partnering with such brands as Draper James, Gray Malin and Rifle Paper Co. Owner, Malia, just seems to keep raising the bar. Take these newest designs of Fashion Icons Karl Lagerfeld and Iris Apfel (if you haven’t seen the documentary of her life….it’s a “must watch”).karl-lettermade-cocktail-napkins

Golf season is in full swing (couldn’t resist) at our house, so these golf inspired napkins would be perfect for Father’s Day or a golf gathering.

The Birthday Party Project

I love a party…especially a birthday party. And, I REALLY love throwing a birthday party for my children or friends. So, I was immediately touched when I learned about The Birthday Party Project. The mission is simple: Bring JOY to homeless children through the magic of birthdays. 

About to celebrate it’s 5th birthday, The Birthday Party Project will host over 315 parties this year. I love that Halo Home by KWS will donate party hats for a birthday for each set of their “party hat” cocktail napkins that are sold.  I think this may be my favorite birthday gift for friends this coming year.

In addition, there are many ways you can support this incredible group. Just go to their website to learn more.
