HOLIDAYS

Introducing: 4 NEW Christmas Themes, from Us to You

Every holiday season is a chance to reinvent what Christmas looks like for you. This year, our Home for the Holidays collection includes decorative items in four beautiful themes, from more traditional looks to something a bit more modern. So put on some Christmas music, grab a hot cocoa, and get ready for some major inspiration.

Sprays of berries, polka dot stockings, and Santa himself come to life in this timeless color palette. Red and white decor brings back memories of poinsettias and bright red bows, of candy canes and cranberry dishes. Updated but classic, these pieces are nostalgic in all the right ways.

Shop Traditional Red & White


Smell the salt air and hear the waves crashing against the rocks with this oceanside-inspired decor. From sand dollars and seashells to jellyfish and mermaids, the underwater world is chic and charming on stockings, tree trimmings, and even ol’ Saint Nick. Let your imagination set sail!

Shop Coastal Cyan & Sand


Explore the ancient traditions of blue and white pottery, which originated in the Middle East and grew in popularity in China and Europe. Intricately painted designs stand vibrantly against clean white backgrounds on everything from vases and urns to ornaments and cocktail napkins. It’s the perfectly cool color palette for the winter season.

Shop Old World Blue & White


Forest creatures, rustic pines, and earthy tones create a cozy, nature-inspired Christmas. Invite wooden reindeer and painted mountain scenes inside, while displaying a Santa ready to traverse a snowy, winter path. Greens, browns, and whites take centerstage in this remote cabin wonderland.

Our Top Three Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and if you're planning on taking your gift to the next level this year, we're here to talk inspiration. We're sharing our top three gift ideas to ensure mom feels the love this year!

1. Monogrammed Mementos

Our monogram program gives you a chance to personalize pillow covers and tabletop decor in many different lettering styles.

Adding a personal touch to our popular European Flax Linen Pillow collection is guaranteed to make mom smile! (A tip from our Creative Director: use personalized pillows or dinner napkins at your next dinner party as place setters that double as takeaway gifts for your guests!)

2. Fresh Flowers With A Twist

You can always schedule a delivery of fresh flowers, but if we're taking it up a notch this year, why not try including a vibrant vase for mom to reuse after Mother's Day as a statement decorative piece?

Blue and white pottery is always a winner, as we've seen this charming collection pair perfectly with flowers of every color - pink, orange, purple, blue, white, and red, among others.

If you're ready to venture out to a new style of pottery, try our Peony Urn with flowers that are popping with every shade of pink!

3. Coffee Table Book Signed By The Author

Who doesn't love a gorgeous coffee table book? If you're looking to go the extra mile on this gift, you can have the author personalize the book for mom!

3 Twists On Traditional Valentine’s Day Roses

The day of all things love is just around the corner. Have you thought of what you will get your significant other to show them your love and affection? Most people usually get the standard dozen red roses that will look great for a week but will then begin to die soon after.

Show your partner that your love endures forever with these gift ideas that will outlast a few days on the counter:

1. ROSE BUSHES

Forget that bouquet and give your love a plant that will continue to produce roses for years to come! The floral industry knows that the demand for roses around Valentine’s Day is high, so the price of a dozen roses can be astronomical. Purchasing a plant that can be added to a garden is a wise investment since you can cut roses from it year after year. Prices for a rose bush can be anywhere from $20-$100 based on maturity, but it will be money well spent given the longevity of the plant.

Gifting a rose bush is also a great way to enhance the look of your garden, and your partner will be reminded of your love every time they look at it. Be sure to be willing to dig the hole and plant the rose bush as well in order to complete this lovely gift idea.

2. FORGIVING POTTED PLANTS

If your partner doesn't have a green thumb, there are still potted plants that will make a great gift. Plants like cacti, succulents, and aloe vera are great choices for those who forget or are too busy to regularly water their plants. You can even find succulents, such as the desert savior, that have romantic hints of red in them. Nevertheless, all of these choices can store water well and actually prefer to be watered much less than a typical potted plant.

They are also small enough to be placed anywhere, like the edge of a bathroom counter, a windowsill, or side table, and will add texture and life to any space. If you are looking to give a larger gift, then consider putting all three of these plants in a larger container for the ultimate arrangement that doesn’t need much attention.

3. OFFICE DWELLERS

Does your partner work at a desk all day with little to no sunlight or direct window access? Think about giving them a potted plant that prefers less light like bamboo, spider, or jade plants. Bamboo will grow quite fast and add height and dimension to any drab office area. Spider plants are white and green in color and add interest to any space, while waxy jade plants look like a bonsai tree and need little attention. For the ultimate office dweller that is gone on long trips, consider getting them a potted ficus tree that actually responds better to dark areas and dry soil.

There are so many more options for Valentine’s Day gifts than just the standard cut flower arrangements. Consider purchasing a potted plant to show your love that will continue to grow and mature throughout many years. Choosing a plant that fits the needs and personality of your partner is easy given the wide variety of plants available. There is no need to purchase cut flowers that will eventually be thrown away when there are many other great plant gift choices that will show that your love endures beyond a single Valentine’s Day!
