Etsy :: the handbook to handmade volume III
We love to throw dinner parties and with the sunny weather upon us now, the invites will be plentiful. We're looking forward to long lazy summer days in friends€™ back yards, sipping on a chilled sauv blanc or even an ice cold beer!This year, though, we're surely shying away from typical party gifts like bottles of wine and artisan cheeses. For a great gift idea, we're all about Sobral's Pop Art Color Coasters. Made of natural lightweight resin, these handmade colorful coasters make for the perfect hostess gift. They measure approximately 4" square and are sold separately. A little home decor goes a long way in saying thanks for the invite and insures a second one, too!Where to Buy - SobralPrice - $24.00Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Pop Art Color Coasters to the Hive.
While the weather in Southern California has been unseasonably cold these past few weeks, the girls here at the Hive are still gearing up for a sunny Spring season. In fact, we think the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather is to plan a picnic with all our gal pals. And, we happen to have discovered a fantastic blanket for the occasion!Scottish designer Donna Wilson is well known in the U.K. for her knitted home accessories, and she's just added a lovely outdoors piece to the collection. The Nos Da Picnic Blanket (named for a Welsh phrase meaning €œgood night€�) is woven in the traditional English double-cloth method. Offered in a vibrant Kelly green and ivory pattern, the blanket has a waterproof nylon backing to insulate you from cool or damp surfaces. That means no grass stains on those brand new flare jeans you just purchased!Where to Buy - The Future PerfectPrice - $288Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Nos Da Picnic Blanket to the Hive.
