Laura of Pembroke: A hostess’s paradise

I am busier than ever.  But I find myself wanting to cook, play hostess, and serve on pretty things after my visit to the newly opened Laura of Pembroke store in Orange Village.

Three generations of women carefully curate this lifestyle boutique.  They have cool clothing, furniture and home accessories, suitable for any age bracket or tax bracket.  But what I was really drawn to, was all of their lovely serving and hostess wares.  Check out the luxury melamine from Beatriz Ball.  This crazy working mom covets the idea of dishwasher safe pieces that are so pretty!

Every since I stepped foot in the new shop within the brand new Pinecrest development, I have been daydreaming  about their lighting.  Anyone who knows me, has probably heard me wax poetic about chandeliers, and dreamy, luxurious lighting.  I fantasize about a comfortable formal dining room where I can host a variety of events…from intimate dinner parties to fancy blow outs.  The lighting pieces that they have to offer are just stunning.  So it’s wonderful to hear that they are working with local builders to outfit entire homes as part of their interior design arm of their business.

The ladies behind Laura of Pembroke have thoughtfully collected pieces and collections that could adorn any table, and contribute to any tablescape.  What I appreciate about what they do at this new boutique…is that there are choices for every price range.  There are low, medium, and higher price points within every division of their business.  And what’s great is that you’d have to look at the price tag to pick out the more inexpensive stuff.  It’s a high-end store that is very approachable.

I love the collection of copper pieces, and whimsical Kate Spaced polka dot selections they’ve chosen.

And I keep thinking about a watermelon salad with feta cheese, and a refreshing summer gazpacho I could serve in these modern white place settings I saw there.

And seriously…how gorg would a caprese or panzanella salad look in these?

Bottom line, this place makes me excited.   They’re now officially open and ready to dazzle you.  Go to Pinecrest in Orange Village and check them out.

Disclosure: I was invited to check out Laura of Pembroke by management. In exchange I was gifted some merchandise.  As always, my opinions are my own.
