Satin and Birch
The Satin and Birch Soap Studio boasts handmade soaps in a wide range of beautifully molded designs. Choose from seasonal selections, like pine scented Christmas wreaths, or the Victorian Christmas soaps in gingerbread, to the variety of exquisite floral designs in delicate colors, with scents like lilac or rose. Sold individually or in sets, these soaps are perfect for the hostess that loves to change her guest soaps to match the season.
For the hostess that just can’t stay out of the kitchen, choose one of Boojiboo’s custom aprons so she can move from the kitchen to the party in style. These aprons have unique details like sweetheart necklines, circle skirts, and fitted busts to make sure your hostess is always looking her best, even while she’s putting the finishing touches on dinner. Over one hundred designs are available, like birds of paradise, cupcakes, ladybugs, and more. A variety of Christmas designs are also available, such as Santa and Christmas hollies.
When you are browsing this shop, you just may think that you’ve stumbled upon a gourmet bakery. Bearclaws, oatmeal raisin cookies, and chocolate dipped butter cookies are the norm here. But before your mouth starts to water, remember that these are not truly baked goods, but instead candles and melts. Perfect for the hostess who is watching her figure, but has an undeniable sweet tooth, these creations may look and smell good enough to eat, but will instead fill her home with the scents of treats straight from the oven. Seasonal favorites include Candy Cane Cupcake, Spiced Wassail, Gingerbread Spice Cupcakes, and Santa’s Sugar Cookies.
DimmalimmHome features handmade products for the home, such as table linens, pillow covers, and festive lighting, but the star of the shop is their variety of Stay On Coasters. These colorful coasters slip on, and stay on, the bottom of wine glasses. This allows guests to carry their glasses with them and set them down as they please. Not only do these coasters put your hostess’ mind at ease, but since each coaster in a set is a different color, they also allow each guests to identify their own glass. Thirteen varieties are featured, in different sizes, colors, and designs, such as citrus or hibiscus.
