Daily Quick Links | Pool Manners and Birthday Party Favors

pool manners :: candy party favors :: black and white dinnerware

This is my daily collection of noteworthy stuff that I saw online.

+ We had a big swimming pool when I was a kid so I am totally approve of the advice given by Apartment Therapy Los Angeles in their post May We Borrow Your Pool? One time, a girl that never spoke to me in school rang my door with her swimsuit. The rules apply to any events. Be a good guest and do not extend your stay.

+ If you are looking for fun birthday party favors, why not filled with candies a mini candy dispenser with scoop or give miniature classic gumball machines by Beau-coup. The double-decker mini candy bins are pretty cool. Via Style Me Pretty

+ The Industrial Hand is an intriguing black and white tableware collection designed by Heather Mae Erickson. Glossy and matte finishes plays against each other in an asymmetric pattern. The Appetizer Platter with 7 Slant Vessels (not shown) and the Cup, Spoons & Saucers on Tray have unique shapes. Via designboom

+ The Taka trunk at Crate & Barrel hides removable bottle dividers. That trunk conveys an old-world steamer trunk. It carries a Spanish mood. NOTCOT refers to it as Pirate Bar Coffee Table and I kind of agree.

+ Supplement the pirate bar decor with the impressive Felted Wool Stones by the talented South African textile designer Ronel Jordaan. They are now available at Viva Terra. I met Ronel two years ago when she came to SIDIM in Montreal. She explained her process to us. Her rock cushions look real and each one is unique since they are handmade. I have seen many lookalikes but Ronal Jordaan’s rock cushions are second to none.
