October 5, 2020—Renowned event planner and interior designer Rebecca Gardner opens her online retail shop Houses & Parties today. Embracing “a bygone era of entertaining with jolts of irreverence,” the shop offers seasonal goods for creating memorable, bespoke occasions at home.

Flower magazine has long been a fan of Rebecca’s events (you may remember her whimsical camellia– and chinoiserie-themed parties featured in our pages). While she splits her time between Savannah and New York, now you can bring her signature style to your small at-home celebrations wherever you are.

“You will create memorable occasions at home with confidence and panache. Win Most Popular, Most Fun and Best Party all in one swoosh.”—Rebecca Gardner, Founder of Houses & Parties

“Discover tabletop hallmarks such as Limoges china, Portuguese linens, exclusive menu cards by famed illustrator Happy Menocal, and tablecloths made with Brunschwig & Fils fabric. Seasonal items include picnic baskets, party crackers, and Gingerbread houses; party-of-the-year essentials with parlor games, headpieces, and costumes for servers; and off-beat gifts such as sugar mice, paper dolls, and ornaments with clever calligraphed idioms,” the company said in a press release. There’s even a 24-hour Houses & Parties etiquette line (expect the advice to be as cheeky as it is sage in typical Rebecca Gardner fashion).
