Welcome to our new summer series where some our favorite stores across the country pick their go-to hostess gifts and entertaining must-haves for a season full of style. First up, The Picket Fence!
Chic people in the know in Ketchum, Idaho, know where to go to buy all the necessary bits and pieces they need to live comfortably – from luxury linens to unique works of art to glamorous gifts, all under one roof. Since 1978, The Picket Fence has been the place to find that special something… like these:
This herb garden soap and lotion set created by James Boyce for Voluspa is an amazing gift for those friends who live in the kitchen. These items complement culinary scents, and are soothing and healing for chefs’ hands!
Elegant and fun dishes by Arte Italica make the perfect gift because of their versatility. We also love them because of their size – small yet able to hold the right amount of guacamole.
A wonderful personalized gift! This modern cocktail napkin is a fun twist on Sferra’s traditional style. Our favorite colors for summer are raspberry and kiwi.
One of our favorite artists in Jan Barboglio; her pieces are unique and heartfelt. Give this box to the hostess with the mostest with a secret note hidden inside.
Who doesn’t love John Derian’s creative decoupage pieces? This classic colorful tray can be used in so many ways; as a piece of art hung on the wall, a tray for your beside table, or a decorative tool to hold keys and other knick knacks in your entryway.
If you’re looking for a whimsical gift for the hostess with a sense of humor, then Mabel the Cow is your answer. This is a classic gift that is perfect for any tabletop.
Thanks to our friends at The Picket Fence for all their great picks which you can buy online here!

Hi I just wanted to come by and answer your question about the paint color in my playroom. It is Martha Stewarts, via Home Depot called Lemongrass. It is the prettiest Green, not too yellow and not too blue and mid-value green, soothing and calming and still fun. It is the perfect green for my spring colored home. Check it out, I think you will love it. Also, thank you for your visit and sweet comment.
Crushing over those salsa bowls!!
I pull stuff from The Picket Fence all the time! I haven’t spotted the guacamole and salsa bowls…lovely! I have a slight guacamole addiction….this could be bad! x Kelly
I always have admired little shops or cottages with picket fences! What great stuff….love that butter dish.
kudos to Ray Gadd, lead photographer for Picket Fence, for the clean, appealing product shots!
Great to know about!
