Whether he’s into updated, bold colors, or prefers a more traditional approach to fashion on the fairway, we have a variety of golf apparel he’ll love from names like Izod, Chaps and PGA Tour. Polos, shorts, vests, jackets... Shop our selection, choose something he’ll love and add a package of balls or tees for good measure.

Pineapple Boat

1 apple
1 pear
1 banana
1 plum

Seedless grapes

1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 heaping Tbsp brown sugar
2 heaping Tbsp flaked coconut
2 tbsp melted butter
2 tbsp dark rum (optional)

1) Slice pineapple in half lengthwise, cutting out the center core. Cut out the meat of the pineapple, forming a boat.

2) Chunk all the fruit, mix together and place back in the pineapple boat. Top with raisins, walnuts or pecans. Sprinkle on coconut and brown sugar. Add the melted butter, seasoned with the cinnamon and nutmeg. Now top with rum.

3) Grill over with indirect heat for 30-35 minutes. Spoon over vanilla ice cream.

We are always looking for new ways to infuse the old-fashioned “something blue” into the wedding day.  A look we love right now is blue eye make-up.  Blue shadows have come a long way since their debut in the 1980’s.  Want to try out the trend?  We suggest teal – a universally flattering blue-ish green. 


Ready, Set, Launch! Angry Birds

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Do you find your phone disappearing for lengthy periods, only to find it in the hands of your child, who is 10 minutes into a game of Angry Birds? I’m not going to pretend to know a lot about the game, but I know that it’s obviously worth stealing Mom or Dad’s phone for. When our Children’s buyers told me that they were getting a line of Angry Bird merchandise, my Mom-of-the-Year impulse took over and I immediately picked up a tee for my little guy. 

Mom of the Year? Try Mom of the Century. My ears are still ringing from the squeals of excitement. I’m still not going to give in to unlimited video game time, but wearing a cute Angry Birds tee once a week? I can get behind that. Ready? Set. Launch!!


Outdoor Accents

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

It’s finally that time of year you were waiting for: Here comes the warmer weather! And what better way to get out and enjoy those sun-soaked days and star-filled nights than in your own outdoor “room.” That’s right: Interior design is a hot trend for outdoors spaces like patios and decks. Pick your cozy sofas, chairs and tables now.

At night, I like a little warmth, especially from a fire pit that gives our family comfort and provides a nice ambiance to my outdoor space. I should actually pick out a new fireplace now, before they’re gone!

Shop it!  Firepits

And I can’t forget those garden accents! We’ve certainly got a great selection, whether you’re looking for bird feeders, plant stands and those unforgettable garden statues. Gnomes are cheery, but I love the solar accents that add light to my garden when it’s dark.

Shop it!  Garden

Fit to be Tied

Thursday, May 17, 2012

I’ve always been enchanted by the way French women dress. They’re so effortlessly chic, so seemingly put-together, no matter what the occasion. Then I read an article that revealed their secrets. Among a few other tricks, they use scarves. Small squares knotted around the neck, larger squares looped on the strap of a handbag, and the look we’re loving in the States: The oblong scarf wound casually ‘round the neck. 

Scarves are ideal for updating an outfit, perking up a monochromatic look or playing up your best assets. And they aren’t just for cold weather! We have lighter versions in wispy fabrics and fresh colors and prints that flatter summer outfits, too. There are a few styles from Basha that I’ll be adding to my accessory collection before the month is out. Shop a little for yourself. Give the women of Paris a run for their money.

Color Block Party

Thursday, May 10, 2012

What’s trending right now? Colorblocking. That is, dramatic blocks of contrasting color, strategically placed on a garment. If you’re looking to expand your wardrobe and embrace the bright color palette of summertime, but you don’t want a head-to-toe monochromatic look, colorblocking is the answer.

You could start out subtly and opt for coordinating browns, whites and blacks, or you could go big and bold with blues, purples and reds. For a slimming silhouette, concentrate on darker colors near the waist. Whatever your choice, a colorblocked garment is a dramatic one, and we have plenty of options to help you stock your closet easily and stylishly.

There is a major trend blooming in dinnerware: Floral bouquets and fauna-themed patterns are jumping out of bouquets and onto dinner plates. Set your table with one of these floral patterns and you'll be virtually whisked away to an English garden each time you sit down to eat.
