Creekside Farms Large Winter Branch Wreath

This gorgeous wreath currently sits just inside the front door at our cabin and I can hardly contain how much I love it. You should have it in your home. Food52 also has a number of other lovely wreaths if you'd prefer a slightly different style. These would also make lovely holiday gifts for family.

Pewter Candlesticks

These are an instant heirloom. Reminiscent of another time yet their purity and simplicity still lend themselves to a more modern setting. I like to have a pair of these with one of the taller (also featured here) version for a trio. They were beyond perfect on our Thanksgiving Table this year. A bargain for the aesthetic and quality. Pick up some pretty tapers from Food52 as well, they have a bunch of amazing colors to choose from.

Wine Glass Markers

Everyone has experienced that moment where they are not sure which drink glass is theirs. You either pick one up and hope it is yours or go for a new glass. And as a host, this means going through many more glasses than you really need to. 

These markers put the end to that confusion and everyone will appreciate it. They are easy to use and the writing comes off easily when the glasses are washed. 

So, trust me, If you like to have people over you need these. They also make a very thoughtful and useful hostess gift!

Maggiso Ceramic Wine Chiller

This wine chiller is amazing. Run it under cold water for a few minutes and it will then keep your bottle of wine cold for 2 - 4 hours. And let's face it, would any single bottle of wine even last 2 hours? You can even write on it with chalk to share the type of wine housed in it or anything else you wish.

We have used it a number of times and are always amazed at the results. The interior is coated so moisture does not transfer from the ceramic to the wine bottle. The ice bucket in this line is also sleek and super functional.
