You guys, it’s happening!! Old man Winter is gone and has been replaced by the beauty of blue skies, sunshine, sprinklers and popsicles. Nothing feels better than walking through your grass with bare feet after a long, cold winter cooped up in your house. And as soon as the sun is in the sky and the temperature is about 65 degrees, it’s my mission in life to cook and eat as many meals outside as possible.
Usually summer dining means burgers, chips and bacon-wrapped grilled asparagus (I’ll give you my recipe.) But sometimes you want a classier evening for a graduation party, engagement celebration or that book club that deserves the very best.
Newly arrived in both our Orem and Salt Lake locations we have just the thing for you. Luxurious linen table runners and tea-towels. They are the perfect thing to give your summer table a little less of the “red-checkered table cloth and paper plates” vibe and a little more “sipping cold beverages and eating fine cheeses on the Amalfi coast” vibe. The runner is perfect down the center of the table with a few bundles of summer blossoms in glass jars and elegant white candle sticks. And the tea towels make beautiful oversized napkins folded at each place setting. Linen is easy to care for and gets softer and more absorbent with use. And while it is true that linen wrinkles easily, you can either quickly press it with a warm iron if you want things a little crisper, or leave it slightly wrinkled so your summer gathering doesn’t feel too stuffy.
Here at Alice Lane, we are not hoity-toity, but we do like to wear fancy pants. And our linen table runners and tea towels are just that. Elegant, upscale and classy but still comfortable, easy and simple. Come visit us in the store and let us help you make a summer table that really shows your friends and loved ones how much you enjoy watching the sunset with them.
table runners – $69.50 | tea towels – $26.50
