Wednesday Wants

Today I’m sharing a great pre-party prep tip. What started out as a way to prepare our home for holiday entertaining has now turned into a year round purchase…paper hand towels (also known as guest towels).  Not only do these products come in an endless array of great looking patterns, colors and even monograms, but they’re such a cleaner alternative to traditional (communal) terrycloth towels.  I love to stock up on different patterns and change out the look from time to time as seen above and below. There’s a lovely tortoise shell print at Horchow that I’ve got my eye on next…Throw in a luxurious liquid soap pump (no fancy bar soaps here please) and your powder room is all set (and zhushed).  What quick fixes do you rely on during the busy holiday season?

  6. Hey Raina and Max, Thanks, the cork holder is from Kim Seybert, a line that I carry in my shop, but sadly this holder (and the matching gold flecked tray, which is fabulous!) is discontinued! Believe me I have tried…thanks again!
