i'm hosting a baby shower tomorrow, so i'm in full-fledged cutesy mode. over the last few days, i've been thanking my lucky stars i wasn't more organized for this fiesta, as i shudder to think of the amount of money i could have spent in preparations, if i'd really tried.
this table runner just screams girly get-together. i spied it at the lovely henry road, which is offering everyone 20% off this weekend only (with code STORE) in celebration of its new store opening. so, i could have had this lovely runner for $40. i'm also quite in love with these grid napkins and these "coffee, tea or me" tea towels.
i've kept meaning to share these, but finally have an appropriate topic. i adore matte stephens - his work is like the best possible combination of the jetsons and where the wild things are. if i had a wee one, i would nab these darling placemats in a heartbeat. but since our only wee one is a small (but vocal) beagle, i probably have a better shot at convincing the hubs of a different design.
these, however, no one would have been able to stop me from buying...if i'd seen them pre-shower. my credit cards thank me, i'm sure...
and really, can we have a cutesy tableware post without at least one anthropolgie option? this snowy owl teapot just brings such a smile to my face! he's even making me rethink my general discomfort when it comes to owls (long, traumatic story about dissecting something very unappealing in high school). and i'm counting the minutes until this gorgeous pitcher goes on sale - how perfect would this be for sangria or lemonade at a summer gathering?
