Happy Memorial Day

Yankee Magazine - Mark & Graham

Happy Memorial Day. Today we express our gratitude to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

This is a favorite summer meal of mine - steamed lobster, corn, mussels, steamers, and potatoes and the table set with bamboo flatware, raffia placemats, a faux bamboo cachepot filled with hydrangeas, wicker wrapped glassware, monogrammed blue and white striped napkins, and folding bamboo chairs.

One "cooking" tip I love is to burn well chosen kitchen candles in your kitchen. They are are made with vegetal, earthy, and clean scents that banish cooking odors without overpowering the space. They neutralize cooking smells, stimulate the appetite, and smell delicious! You don't want floral scents for your kitchen.

I have two new favorite kitchen candles from NEST New York. And today get 20% off with code SUMMER20.

Santorini Olive and Citron - indulge in the splendors of the Greek islands with this collection featuring notes of fresh lemon zest and Mediterranean olive leaf blended with creamy avocado and hints of black pepper.

This is my newest addition from NEST and it's wonderful. It is from their new Alfresco Collection featuring notes of white tea, rosemary, cedarwood, and a hint of crisp mint, a fresh herbal scent known to naturally deter insects. So this White Tea and Rosemary is great alternative to citronella for alfresco dining.

Either of these scents would make lovely hostess gifts if you will be visiting friends and family this summer.
