Summer is my favorite time of year. The sunshine brings so much warmth and light that I always find it is the perfect season to reinvent and explore new possibilities. These are the months that gift me the time to play outside, spend time with my family, and set the table for the rest of the year.
My inspirations for the summer are:
Creating desserts with seasonal fruits (I love nectarines)
Running near the beach (especially Torrey Pines)
Vacationing with my family (anywhere remote)
Walking our Weimeraners (maybe they walk us)
Tending to my Gardenias (my favorite flowers)
Drinking rose wines (and reds…and whites…and bubbles)
Sweating through even hotter hot yoga (too much rose wine)
Dining al fresco (for all meals) is my favorite part of summer
They say if you can think about what inspires you, then it can give you a goal. Hearing and seeing happy people in our stores provides me the spark of inspiration to create new desserts and display new gift items.
Here are some of the new things you will see this summer:
Smores Hot Fudge Sundae –
marshmallow ice cream & chocolate graham crackers
Roasted Coconut Pineapple Bread Pudding –
Govino for your Champagne –
reuseable & recyclable outdoor Champagne flutes
Maileg from Copenhagen –
collectible and playful bunnies and mice
What inspires you?
