Today on the blog we are featuring the ever so talented Lucy Grymes.
We are continuing our monthly segment of sharing with you some of our favorite women-owned, small businesses for gifting. First up was MAE Wearable Art. If you didn’t get a chance to check her out, do so! She has really elevated my gal-pal gifting.
Lucy Grymes is a paper and lifestyle brand that strives to create paper goods that are beautiful and easy to use. Our hope is that these products will inspire your creativity while putting ease and enjoyment back into entertaining.
Her unique pieces also make for excellent gifting!
I asked Lucy, founder + creative director, what is her go-to hostess gift and she shared:
“Well I have to say my favorite hostess gift is our paper vase wraps because not only are they unique and fun but they also come in cute packaging that is already tied with a bow. With that being said, I think the best hostess gift is often something usable because when it's finished it's gone and doesn't add unnecessary clutter to someone's house. This is the exact reason Camp Cocktails have been my go to hostess gift summer - you can easily create one batch of delicious infused alcohol and enjoy! “
Her fave entertaining tip?
“I feel the most important part of entertaining is making sure your guests feel welcome, nobody can enjoy themselves if they don't feel comfortable - it doesn't matter how perfect your table looks or how good the food is. The easiest way to create the perfect atmosphere is making sure you not only individually welcome your guests but also introduce them to each other and call out their commonalities so they can easily connect.”
Lucy also offers inspiration for tablescapes that will wow your guests. She even has bundles to keep the guesswork out of coordinating items such as layering placements to go with your vase wraps.
For all of you with busy homes and schedules, Lucy has gorgeous weekly planners available as digital downloads ready to support you!
