Beach House Table Linens.

I try to keep the story at the forefront of everything I share here on the blog but I also love sharing when we have something new and the design process behind it too. So, I'm excited to introduce our new Railroad Stripe Tabletop Collection, thanks to the popularity of our sturdy striped aprons that were the first to make a splash.

I love this collection for a beach house or lake house, but it's also perfect for everyday entertaining at home too. And, there are a few really fun design details, such as the twill tape loop on the dinner napkin, the selvedge edge on one of the tea towels, and the utensil loop on the placemat (my favorite!) for neatly tucking your silverware or napkin in place.

Love to know your favorite pieces in this collection. You can shop it all here, and even learn the easy tips for steaming a lobster!
