I must say I am always super excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but not only for all the amazing clothes that are on sale. This is such a great time to stock up on new items for your kitchen. You will be entertaining a lot in the coming months and we all need beautiful new platters, cheese boards, serving utensils and so much more. It is also a perfect time to grab items that will be a unique and special gift. Hostess gifts are sometimes hard, but if you keep candles, bowls that can be filled with goodies and the coziest blankets that can be thrown over your couch or wrapped up for a special someone, you will feel totally prepared!
