Fruit and Dessert Plate

Don't be fooled, this White Plate by Seletti only looks disposable. It's reusable and dishwasher safe, and particularly stylish for a casual summer party. 

Striped Napkin

Stripes are patriotic, and a Navy Stripe Napkin will never go out of style. 

Paper Straws

We hold this truth to be self-evident: Striped Paper Straws make any party more festive. 

Bar Mop Towels


Have you ever had a party that didn't benefit from having Bar Mop Towels on hand? 

Enamelware Pie Set

Use this Enamelware Pie Set for much more than pie. The set includes dishes that are just right for serving succotash and potato salad

Striped Candles
