Set the Easter Table

The components: Dishware – Florals – Feast

Set the perfect Easter Table with a classical design such as Juliska Berry & Thread Dishware.
Soft hues and the understated pattern make this the choice for spring. Let the flowers, food, and guests be the stars of your Easter brunch, lunch, or supper.

Classic yet chic, Juliska designs effortlessly grace all styles and tables – including mine! Extremely durable; dishwasher safe, microwave friendly, and oven ready. Find Juliska locally at THE HAPPY COOK.

In spring, the focal point of your table should be florals. Choose either one large or several small arrangements that are low to allow for conversation and the passing of dishes, and not too perfect. We love stems and blooms drooping over the edge of the arrangement vessel.

Another idea: decorate the table with egg cups filled with little buds or succulents! Let the kids help.

TIME TO CELEBRATE

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 12.59.53 PM

According to the Dictionary, FOLLY is a building constructed primarily for decoration. True! 

We can hardly believe it’s been one whole year since FOLLY appeared in Midtown, brining us a new destination for decoration: interior design, home furnishings, gifts, and bridal registry.

To help us celebrate - Stop in any time next week and you will receive  20% OFF one item!

WELL DESERVED

It’s so nice to see GOOD PEOPLE being rewarded for their LABOUR OF LOVE…

Our local MUD has received some well-deserved national (and international!) recognition recently. How lucky are we to call this our LOCAL BREW?!
