You may already be familiar with Serena and Lily's swoon-worthy nursery collections (I seriously would visit their website at least a few times a week the entire time I was pregnant), and there's no question they make some of the best bedding and graphic prints on the market. Recently, they've expanded their line to include some fantastic decor and tabletop pieces, all of which have the same bold prints and vibrant colors ever present in the rest of their collections. Here are a few things on my wish list to spruce up the house and get ready for warm-weather entertaining.
|Gobi Towels, $18 - $34, serenaandlily.com.|
As the weather heats up, impromptu dinners with friends and family become a regular part of our week, so chic towels are a must for the guest bathroom.
|Montauk Birch Tray, $38, serenaandlily.com.|
I love serving drinks and appetizers on trays when we have company and the bright, bold pattern of the Montauk Birch Tray has spring and summer written all over it.
|Set of 4 Corsica Napkins, $38, serenaandlily.com.|
I'm always looking for great sets of napkins to go with our everyday white dishware. I love the Indian-inspired print and the vibrant yellow on this Corsica set.
|Halden Table Runner, $38, serenaandlily.com.|
My tablecloths are always wrinkled when I pull them from the linen closet and I rarely have time to iron them, so runners are my go-to accessory for dinner parties. This runner is modern and graphic, but still has a subtle bohemian vibe and it's neutral color-pallet makes it a versatile must have.
|Fresco Beverage Bowl, $88, serenaandlily.com.|
For backyard soirees, I always put cold drinks in a container so that guests can serve themselves and I can enjoy the party. This bowl would pay for itself in price-per-use after a single summer.
|Fouta Beach Towel, $48, serenaandlily.com.|
During the spring and summer months, we often meet friends at our local farmer's market for dinner. Each family brings a couple blankets and we enjoy the sunshine and great food. These beach towels easily double as picnic blankets and we'll be using them both at the park and on the sand.
