Our New Designer!

We are just so excited to introduce to all of you our new designer working with us at The Willows. Meg Forrest-Stamper has been in the design business for over 20 years, and is an absolutely brilliant and magnetic woman who we are just so excited to have on our team. She recently sent out a letter to some of our clients who we knew were in need of design services, but we thought we would post it for all of our friends who might be looking for design help.

To Willows Design Clients,

I feel honored and grateful to introduce myself to The Willows design clientele. My name is Meg Stamper-Forrest. I have been doing design in the Valley for over 20 years, and I appreciate the vision The Willows wants for their clients. I have been asked to offer my services for their store. Working with The Willows staff enables me to have a great team to help with your needs. For more information please call The Willows or Ala Carte Interiors. We look forward to assisting you with all of your design needs.

Words and Numbers

The Willows has had some fun with pillows in the past. We've used old seedsacks, burlap and vintage linens done up in french script and even covered in buttons. We are in love with our new number pillows fitted with a grommet in the corner for easy throw-around!

Also, for all you fans of print - you'll love our "The Journal Atlantic" pillow! All of these pillows can be purchased individually or put together for a fun set.

We love them on our black and white ticking sofa - where would you put them?

We wanted to let all our friends know about a great cause we are supporting, and one that needs your help as well! We were recently approached by a friend and representative of a local branch of St. Mary's Food Bank. She informed of us that St. Mary's Food Bank more than ever needs donations to support the growing number of individuals and families in need of assistance.

We just happened to have this amazing 18-light chandelier that has never been hung - and we want to auction it off to all of you - 100% of proceeds going directly to St. Mary's!

This chandelier retails for $2000. We will start our bidding at $500.

Bidding will begin Monday, May 18 and end Saturday at 5:30pm on May 23.

You may call us, email us or stop by the store with your bids. You may also stop by the store to look at the chandelier! The blog will be updated daily with the latest bid high. Bids must go in $25 increments.

The winner will be expected to pay their bid in full within a week of the auction's end. If they do not, the chandelier will go to the next in line. Winner may write a check directly to St. Mary's or to The Willows and drop the check off at The Willows.

Candle Connaisseurs

Being in business for over 11 years now, we consider ourselves to be candle connaisseurs of sorts. We were thrilled when we found how Votivo scents filled a room, we were overjoyed when we found soy-based wonders like our Fresh Linen candles, and we even sprang for the reusable glass-jar candles we found in New York.

However, it is not until now that we have truly, truly fallen in love with a candle.

Introducing our new soy-based hand-poured, small batch triple scented candles (wow, that's a mouth-full!). The candles are even double-wicked for a clean and balanced burn. It's amazing they can pack all that punch into one tiny candle!

We have have wonderful scents ($35 each) to choose from:

Refreshing & clean with notes of agave nectar, lilly & soft woods

Soft & clean perfect for spring with fresh grass & sweet violets

Luscious Japanese grapefruit, exotic fruits & watery greens

Sophisticated & herbal with patchouli, vanilla & lime

Lemony & green floral-herbal blend that is clean & complex

A Birthday Party

The Willowettes threw a little surprise for one of our own - the darling Krista who has transformed the store with her touch and creativity since the moment she has arrived. The mood was bright, birthday celebration complete with paper garland flowers, numbered linens and a custom colorful umbrella made by Bev herself!
Afterwards, we wanted to take a little nap on Bev's amazingly lush lounge furniture. We dreamt of chocolate cake and champagne (yes, there were plenty of both), an amazing meal (cooked by Bev herself) and future parties to come!

Special Order Sunday

Love Sundays?

Sundays are so relaxing. I love to wake up late, wash my linens in lavender, and open up all the blinds to let the sunshine in. Sundays are a great day to spend quality time with family and pets, take time to spend outside (even if outside is under a cool cabana by the pool!), and try new recipes for casual Sunday dinners!

Vintage linen fabric sold by the yard at The Willows and French Franc Bistro Plate available to order in quantities of 4.

If you find any of these items inspiring, let us know and we will happily order them for you! Smaller items may have to be ordered in multiple quantities.
