While I’m playing catch up from Hawaii and recovering from my sunburn (you burn when you’re prego, people!), I’ve asked Ali from J’Adorn Designs to fill in for me today!
Hi everyone! My name is Ali and I’m a jewelry designer and blogger over at J’Adorn Designs. I am thrilled to be here with you today! Lexy and I have both gone completely ga-ga for the geometric trend lately, so I’m here today to share some great summer gift ideas within that vein of design. Enjoy!
For the gardeners and home décor junkies in your life, these terrarium kits from Anthropologie are perfect. They’re so easy to fill with inexpensive succulents and air plants, stones, moss, or other natural elements, and terrariums (terraria?) bring so much life to any room. Can you tell I’m a fan?
If you’re into homemade gifts, I’d highly recommend checking out the tutorial for these geometric cake toppers over at Julep. They’d make a great gift for friends who love to bake or host parties! I especially love that the design isn’t geared toward a particular type of event, so they could be used for all kinds of parties – birthdays, weddings, graduations, Father’s Day…even just to spruce up your latest edible creation!
Of course, what girl doesn’t love a new piece of jewelry to add to her collection? I’ve got some lovely geometric-themed pieces in my shop to fit the bill. These Bloom Earrings from my shop are a great staple piece. They’re completely handmade, featuring a sunny yellow fabric print from Joy Laforme Design Studio wrapped around a sterling silver post. They’re also available in pink over in the J’Adorn Designs shop!
Also pictured above is my Bunting Flag Necklace, a colorful piece to add a touch of whimsy to any outfit.
I’m loving this geometric bunny art print from Scissors Paper Mouse on Etsy. It would make a great addition to a gallery wall or a baby girl’s nursery!
As a stunning statement necklace for the fashionista in your life, I recommend the Rochelle Necklace. It’s right on trend for this summer with coral glass beads, white glass flowers, and a chunky gold chain. It also jingles a little when you wear it, which I consider an added bonus!
These geometric plates from West Elm are gorgeous with their bright colors and bold shapes. They’re made of melamine, so they’re tough enough for an outdoor dinner party or picnic. I’d give a set of these to the chefs and entertainers in my life.
Happy partying to all of you this summer! Have a mojito in my honor!
