I always appreciate when someone brings me a gift when I entertain. Its a lovely gesture which I return frequently.

However I wish people would be a little bit more creative than wine, candles, and champagne. Most of my friends don’t know that I am allergic to perfume, so I can never use any of the candles I receive.

Don’t get me wrong…. I love wine and champagne but it’s fun receiving a gift you can use everyday or when you entertain.

I discovered William-Wayne and Co. many many years ago and fell in love with their artful store and unique merchandise.  I keep going back because they always have something special.

I walked in the other day, because I needed to buy hostess gifts. I came away with  5 little black clocks and gave them for my hostess gifts. Who doesn’t need a clock???    And I found the perfect serving platter for all the foodies in my life.

I am always talking about entertaining and using different kinds of to mix and match. That seems to be a hobby of owner William Wayne, who has an eye for picking and choosing eclectic pieces which work together in unexpected ways. He’s truly the master of it! Check out the video to see how he does it!
