My lovely friend, the gifting guru Simone LeBlanc, recently invited some ladies to her home for a backyard dinner and an introduction to her newest offering, the Host + Gather Box. As the sun began to set, we sipped chilled rosé, slathered honey and cheese on chunks of baguette and started to chill out after the work day. In the spirit of Simone’s Host + Gather box, the table was decorated with Heather Taylor Home linens, Lostine black walnut and leather cutting boards, brass serving dishes, tillandsia air plant and bottles of Wonder Valley olive oil (fruity and perfect for baguette dipping). The whole evening felt like a much needed dose of vacation in the middle of reality. To recreate: gather some friends, lay out a killer cheese board and order the Host + Gather Box for all the necessary pretties.
