Thanksgiving at Leta Austin Foster Boutique

I can't believe that we are already mid November. Time sure does fly when you are having fun, and I definitely do have loads of it in my boutique amongst all the lovely people I'm fortunate enough to see come and go every day, as well as all of the beautiful things I get to work around with. In my last post, I wrote about Thanksgiving and shared the recipes that I love making for our Thanksgiving feast. I also wrote a little bit about the new arrivals we have here in the boutique for the all fall and Christmas holidays. What I didn't do is show them to you, so I'm back with some of the most popular things we have in store for the season starting with these cute little place cards, which not only add a special touch to your table, but are also very useful when having a sit down diner.

Another one of my favorite things is one which you have probably seen me write about many times before, the Isis china in this burnt orange colour. 

I love the little hand painted designs, and all their little details. I especially love it paired with these beautiful Biot glasses, and this beautiful handmade porcelain flower vase from Vieux Temps, exclusive to Leta Austin Foster Boutique. These are great because they stay beautiful forever, and help finish your table.

You could set your table up with simple handmade linen napkins like the orange one below. These beautiful napkins have two forms of embroidery on them, the tatting around their edges and the monograms, giving them a crisp, clean look, which is very much of today.

If you are not hosting a Thanksgiving dinner but rather going to one, it is always thoughtful to bring a present such as these candles and diffusers from Agraria in their wonderful autumn scents.

I also love the reed diffusers from Nest. Nothing says thank you like a beautiful set like this one in Sicilian Tangerine, which smells heavenly without being too overpowering.

Another great gift for a hostess or as a treat for yourself, are these wonderful desk accessories from Sister Parish and Il Prato, from Venice. I can't think of anyone who would not love to get one of these.

If you would like to bring something tasty why not bring or even send ahead some of these fabulous goodies from Notti. They have the most exquisite and crunchy toffee and the most savory cheese biscuits I have ever had. Another instant classic, as well as something all of the dinner guests can enjoy.

I also have delicious gummie bears and chocolates made especially for us. Of course all of these are made using the finest ingredients, and come in adorable packaging in the colours of the season. We do make beautiful custom baskets, and ship everywhere, but order early since it's a very busy time of the year.

My last idea for a hostess present are these wonderful embroidered belts and Porthault handkerchiefs, sure to be a hit for anyone anywhere. I'm showing fall colours here, but they can be customized for any taste. I love these because they are unique and practical, and show you are thoughtful and thankful.

Hope you like my fall ideas for your table and presents for hostesses. All of these and more great gifts are available at Leta Austin Foster Boutique, just come in anytime and see Betty or call us and place your order.

Happy Shopping!
