Ico Towel featured on Apples & Onions blog! Check out their Labor Day entertaining tips!
"The Daily Meal asked us what our favorite products are for entertaining this Labor Day weekend! So many simple ways to liven up your celebrations so you have some time top enjoy the weekend too!
A store-bought artisan product- Don’t spend TOO much time laboring over the food, take some help from the store with quality products. Start cocktails with a tin of Bazzini’s nuts. http://www.bazzininuts.com/gifts/tins.html Artisan pickles (http://rickspicksnyc.com/) add variety to your burger and dog toppings. Or pick up a pie from a local bakery or artisan ice cream at your local creamery.
Striped Straws- Because they’re fun, they’re striped and we want to SCREAM summer on this last weekend of summer 2011. We think they do.
Deck Towel- Pool parties, beach trips and picnic blanket needs are solved with one linen towel/blanket. It even makes a pretty tablecloth!
Drink Dispenser- If you want to serve sangria, fresh lemonade, ice tea or Arnold Palmers, fill one of these beverage dispensers. Then guests can help themselves and you’re free to have fun.
Outdoor Umbrella- Shade and stripes. There’s no classier way to protect your skin.Striped Straws
Bambu Plates and Cutlery- Disposable, recyclable, compostable and still chic! These are the hippest option for plates and cutlery when you can’t transport the real thing.
Disposable Cotton Napkins and Placemats - These colorful rolls combine the elegance of cloth napkins and placemats with the convenience of paper, so they’re perfect for summer garden parties and picnics. They’re made of fine-woven 100% cotton with easy-tear perforated edges and special bonding so they won’t fray. Gingham prints and pretty red and navy blue colors add a fun touch."
