Wouldn’t it be fun to scout for the set design of the television hit show Mad Men? With that show the vintage look has become more appreciated and popular. Here are several pieces that take you back immediately to a different time. The gold and black finish on the vintage cocktail table is a Mid 20th century design and the telephone is from the 1940’s. Check out the pullout drawer on the telephone to hold your favorite telephone numbers!!
We are entering the giving season on so many levels…giving of our time, money and energy! A wonderful gift that keeps on giving is Kimberly Schlegel Whitman’s Tablescapes book …Setting the table with Style. What is wonderful about this book is it has many creative ideas for all occasions not just Thanksgiving and Christmas. Anyone who entertains would appreciate this gift as it will give them ideas for their next dinner party, buffet or gathering. The photographs are beautiful and inspiring and it is easy to pack if travelling. Other hostess gifts to consider are personalized stationary or a handwritten note stating the donation you have made to a charity on their behalf. Of course a bottle of wine is always appreciated but let’s try and be creative in your giving this year. Let me know of your hostess gifts that were a big hit!!
