Weekend Inspiration: Recipe Necessities

Weekends are always our favorite time for trying out new recipes. We may not always get it right the first time, so having the freedom of a weekend to perfect a recipe is how we like to do it! Now that Friday is already here, we're thinking the next couple of days might be a good chance for us to put our baking hats back on and try out something new! And if all else fails, we always have our Paris Market simple baking mixes in case we need to whip up something delicious in a flash. Stop by the store for all of your baking and recipe necessities and have a great weekend!


On the Table: Colorful Kitchen Essentials

Seeing as summer is officially here we thought it might be a good time for us to start making the house feel as warm and colorful as the season itself! The past couple of days we've been keeping busy stocking our shelves with all kinds of summery kitchen essentials, some of which includes our favorite French cheese knives, playful tea towels and our intoxicating Archivist candles. It's the season for fun in the sun, relaxation and delicious meals with friends and family, and what better time to add a pop of color to your home and kitchen than at the start of a new season! Stop by today for all of your colorful summer essentials!


Currently Inspired: Petanque

There's no shortage of fun activities we like to participate in during the summer months. But, when the sun is shining and the air is warm, there's one game we look forward to playing above all else. Petanque first originated in 1907 in La Ciotat, in Provence, in southern France. Translated into English, Petanque means "anchored feet", as that is how one positions themselves during the game. The object of the game is to throw hollow metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a Jack. Two teams compete to get closest to the Jack, and the first to reach 13 points wins the game. Deceptively simple, we're always amazed by the skill required to play the game well. Despite its challenges, there's nothing more fun, nor summery, nor French then grabbing a few of our friends for a couple rounds of Petanque. See you in the park!

Petanque set available at The Paris Market and our Online Boutique!


This Just In: Strawberry Moth's Summer Pennants

Hot off the press and just in time for the summer, we've just added an adorable new collection of camp inspired pennant flags to our shelves! Crafted by one of our favorite local artists, Jessica Duthu of Strawberry Moth, each flag is screen-printed with water based, eco friendly ink on vintage cotton fabric. Pennant measures 15" long and is the perfect gift for hanging in the home, cozy bear den, or nursery. Grab a flag today and kick off the summer season in style!

Happy Memorial Day!

Today officially marks the start of Summer vacation. Which, for many means school is out and the beach is in! But, more importantly, Memorial Day is a day for us to remember and to celebrate the men and women who have died while serving in the country's armed forces. In honor of this Federal holiday, we thought we would grab a few of our favorite Red, White and Blue products to celebrate with on this Memorial Day Monday. So kick back, relax, fire up the grill and enjoy this restful holiday. See you at the beach!

Friday Favorite: John Derian Decoupage

Generally speaking, Fridays are good days. The weekend is right around the corner, people are in good moods, relaxation is on the horizon, but on a day like today, when a new collection of decoupage plates by John Derian Company arrives at your doorstep, it's no longer just a good day, it's a great day! John Derian marries two of our favorite things, vintage finds with everyday homegoods. He never ceases to amaze us with his prolific output of inspiring decoupaged plates, platters, paperweights, coasters and bowls. Each one is its own work of art, but his products really come to life when arranged together into collections. As excited as we are for the weekend, it's safe to say we're even more excited about our latest John Derian arrivals. Enjoy a few of our favorite collections below and have a great weekend!
