Mother’s Day Gifts for the Kitchen Mom

You can find her in the kitchen- ingredients spread out all over the counter, a little bit of flour on her face, whipping up a new (and likely delicious) recipe. The Kitchen Mom is a wonderful cook, hostess, and of course, mother. She’s the one always making sure everyone’s hearts and bellies are full when they leave her home. For this upcoming Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a list of a few items any Kitchen Mom will be sure to love! Check them out:

Southern Sayings Mugs

Whether it be for coffee, sweet tea, or hot chocolate, your Kitchen Mom probably likes a lot of mugs for her family. These sweet sayings mugs are both practical and adorable, plus they will make for a sweet reminder in her kitchen! Each with a different Southern saying, these will bring her a little extra smile when she’s drinking her morning drink! “I love you like biscuits and gravy” is the perfect Mother’s Day gift that will remind her every time she picks up her mug of how special she is.

Kitchen Apron

Chances are, your mom has ruined a lot of cute shirts while cooking and baking! Instead of her old t-shirt with holes in it, give her a nice apron to wear! This gift will show her that you appreciate all the hard work she spends in the kitchen, and show her that she deserves to wear something nice when she cooks! Since she’s always serving others, she probably doesn’t take the time to get herself an apron, so it will be a sweet touch that you are looking out for her!

“Grateful. Thankful. Blessed.” Embroidered Napkins

This gift transforms something practical into something precious. Whether it’s to hang up on the stove, or to use for cleaning up after a dinner, your Kitchen Mom needs napkins. Instead of having generic napkins in her home, gift her these napkins that will always remind her how grateful, thankful, and blessed you are for her.

Tiered Trays Five Ways

Tiered trays are fun and functional ways to add height and interest to any room or space. These trays easily transition through the seasons or even throughout your house since there are so many ways to use them! Check out five of the dozens of ways to use tiered trays in every home and every season.

1. Garden Goodness

Summer fruits and vegetables from the garden will soon start appearing in kitchens, so encourage a healthy snack by keeping your fruits and veggies displayed right on the counter!

2. Party Prep

Tiered trays make great holders for cups, napkins, and utensils without taking too much space on the table. They are also great for garnishes for your favorite summer cocktails.

3. Counter Catch-All

Make the most of limited counter space by storing items you use often in a tiered tray. Organize everything from your tea or coffee bar necessities to kitchen utensils to bathroom counter cotton balls in a pretty yet practical way in a tiered tray perfect for any room of your home.

4. Pots & Planters

Make an easy centerpiece in a flash. Stack your pots of succulents or grab buds from your garden to stack in a tiered tray for a fast statement piece for any party or dinner. Your choice of flowers and vases can transform the tiered tray centerpiece into fancy and formal or casual and laid-back – versatility at its best!

5. Seasonal Swaps

Tiered trays make quick and easy seasonal vignettes that can be changed out from Christmas ornaments to Valentine’s Day hearts to Patriotic stars to Halloween cats and cauldrons. Decorating with your favorite seasonal items can transform any space in a flash.

Fall Decorating Tips

Fall is nearly here! Leaves are starting to change, mornings are getting cooler, and school is back in session. We’ve been shipping out seasonal décor since July! We hope you’re as excited as we are for you to unpack and merchandise your new products. Whether you love a rustic look or a more modern aesthetic, merchandising your products with natural accents is a great way to embellish your store and help your customers envision the products in their own space.

While long branches with fall leaves look stunning in an oversized vase or as a centerpiece, waiting for peak color change in your area may mean that you won’t be seeing those lovely vibrant leaves until mid-late October or even November. Don’t let that stop you from bringing the outdoors in!
Pumpkins and gourds come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and colors. Wagons, baskets, and shelves are great pieces to accent with these autumn classics!  Remember pumpkins don’t fare well if they’re too hot or too cold, so keep them indoors when the weather isn’t quite right (or plan to replace them).

Prefer lower maintenance décor? You can still join in on the fun! Berry stems, pussy willow, and dried wheat sheaves are lovely additions to vases and buckets. Fill decorative cloches with festive items like pheasant tail feathers or acorns. Tied bundles of cinnamon sticks not only smell amazing but can be used to fill vases and jars. Long branches are fantastic seasonal additions that can be hung on the wall or suspended from the ceiling to display fall textiles and garlands. Have fun with your Fall décor! And remember to tag us when you post images of your displays with #creativelyyours!

Effortless Outdoor Entertaining Ideas

From daytime picnics to happy hours, summer is the season of outdoor entertaining! Whether you’re having an afternoon of lawn game tournaments and BBQ or treating your friends to classy evening cocktails, planning ahead and having outdoor entertaining essentials lets you spend your time enjoying the event, rather than cooped up in the kitchen.

Having drinks readily available allows guests to choose their own beverage or replenish when needed. This galvanized metal beverage tub is perfect for a more casual event. Equipped with a bottle opener on the side, guests won’t need to hunt down the bottle openers that always seem to walk away. Put a bucket underneath to catch bottle caps to keep them from landing on the patio.

Bar carts are an excellent alternative for smaller spaces because they’re easy to integrate into different spaces in the home. Try it as a bar cart for events and then a guest room side table for everyday use. Fill a large bowl with ice to store bottled beverages and add a pitcher of flavored water or premade punch. Our stainless steel cocktail shaker has recipes directly on the shaker if you opt for a mix-it-yourself bar!

Prep your bar cart with glasses, cups, or mugs – whichever is best suited for the beverage of choice for the gathering.

Utensil holders and food covers keep the bugs away and utensils clean until you’re ready to eat.

Berry bowls, serving trays, and pinch pots are some of our favorite serving essentials because they help make prep easy! Pre-wash your berries and throw them back in the fridge until you’re ready to eat! Pinch pots work great as condiment bowls and can be pre-filled the day of the party! Serving trays and platters are great hostess gifts and are useful for carrying food to and from the kitchen.

Don’t forget a set of napkins and cheerful napkin rings! Not only do cloth napkins look fantastic at the table, they’re much more durable and eco-friendly than paper! We’ve just released these sets that are made of thick woven cotton—perfect for BBQs.

Whether your gathering is large or small, we have a wide assortment of functional and decorative items to complete your tablescapes and make your preparations a breeze. We hope all of your summer gatherings are full of friends, family, laughter, and joy!

Inspired Spring Décor and Tips

Indoor plants are proven to not only improve air quality, but also help reduce stress, improve health, sharpen focus, and create an overall feeling of well-being. We think those benefits are too good to pass up, which is why you can find homes for plants in nearly all of our collections with enough style variety to match any décor!

Decorative trays may not be the first item you think of when it comes to indoor plants, but they can be perfect to mix things up from a standard pot or cachepot. Choose a ceramic, terra-cotta, or metal tray, filled with sand and rocks to make a shallow succulent garden or use a tray to hold a few different coordinating or matching pots to keep all of your plants together.

Looking for a clean, modern plant display? Terrariums are a chic way to display air plants, moss, or African violets.

A pot or planter is your plant’s best accessory! Having a variety of options for the littlest of plants to homes for large indoor plants is great for ensuring that anyone who visits your store can find a pot that suits their space. Sets of pots with varying sizes can be broken up to sell individually, but also look great in the home all living together.

Shop All Pots

Hanging planters and wall vases are a popular home décor item and can be a fun item to display in your stores without taking up room on the shelves. We hear your window displays calling to have a few of these added!

Speaking of displays, how do you display items like these? Tiered shelves, carts, and tables are fantastic pieces for displaying pots and planters!

How do you votive?

The beauty of so many of our products is that they are open to interpretation. We will develop a piece of home décor and style it one way for our catalog photo shoot. Then our merchandising team puts their spin on things and displays it another way in our showroom. After that, all sorts of unique and amazing independent retailers integrate the item into their curated collection of goods. Finally, the individuals who purchase the item welcome it into their home to beautify their space in whatever way they see fit.
