Gathering of Friends

Earlier this month we headed to Atlanta for our annual trip to the Gift and Home Furnishings Market in search of great new products for the store.  Although it can be a bit overwhelming, we never know what we'll find and we love wandering in and out of showrooms searching for lines that will be the perfect fit at The Picket Fence.  We found some wonderful new products and even got a jump on Christmas 2012!  (Crazy, we know, but if we don't order now we won't have it in December!)  Most of our new lines will be arriving over the next few weeks, but we were so excited when our first market order arrived today that we had to share it with you!

Introducing "The Gathering of Friends" - the newest addition to our cookbook selections.  These beautiful cookbooks are filled with recipes that are tried and true, along with meal plans that any cook, novice or gourmet, can create. 

With a unique spin on the classic cookbook, these books are divided into meals or "gatherings" outlined with a menu, tablescape ideas and place settings.  Each recipe is simple to prepare and accompanied by a full-color photograph. 

Filled with great ideas for entertaining, these books make wonderful gifts.  Whether you're new to cooking or a gourmet chef, The Gathering of Friends is an excellent addition to any kitchen!
