GIFT GUIDE // Gifts for the Haute Hostess








GIFTS FOR THE HAUTE HOSTESS

I’ve had a daydream, ever since we bought a house and got married, that I will begin to throw perfect dinner parties and effortless cocktail parties! I’ll put my new serve wear to good use and learn to mix a magnificent manhattan. This gift guide is for all of those folks out there that love to entertain in style!

  1. I’ve got an addiction to tea towels, and this White Lines example has a hand drawn pattern on the front that appeals to my love for geometric pattern. I don’t think one can have too many towels in the kitchen, so this is an easy addition to this week’s theme. From Pawling. $24

  2. These mini planters are the perfect gift for an entertainer! They make a modern and simple centerpiece, or can be spread about the house for pops of fun decor. Wind and Willow Home hand dips each planter in your choice of a great palette of colors—-this Mink brown is my favorite! $24

  3. We’ll add these next items to the “splurge” category of this guide. Hay & Clara von Zweigbergk’s Kaleido Trays are a simply stunning set of modular serving dishes! Found at A+R Store, they come in the perfect color palette and are almost, almost, too pretty to put food on! $17-84 per tray

  4. Bringing home the best fresh produce from the farmers market is more fun if it’s in a chic geometric reusable tote! I can’t get enough of triangle patterns lately, so this bag from BROOKLYNrehab, available at Milly & Earl, is right up my alley. $25

  5. Gold-dipped flatware? Yeah. I’m in. These stainless steel forks and knives are plated in 24k gold, and will make any place setting look stunning. Anthropologie brings the fancy, without fail! $38 for a five-piece setting

  6. Spartan, one of our favorite Austin sources for slick decor, has this gorgeous walnut cutting board with a leather strap. Perfect for cheese boards and charcuterie, I love the addition of strapping to the board! Wood and leather always work, in my opinion. $84
