Welcome to the season of sunshine, backyard barbecues, and lazy afternoons spent sipping cool drinks by the pool or on the porch.

That’s what I imagined when I began planning our summer 2024 Sweet Home Subscription Box many months ago.

I wanted to curate a care package for you that included some of my favorite products (Julie Andrews is singing in my head, “These are a few of my favorite things!”), ones that capture essence of summer and the coziness of Eleanor Rose Home.

From the sip of a refreshing peach iced tea to the glow of a candle illuminating a cozy evening, each item in this box has been carefully chosen to enhance your summer and bring a little nostalgia & warmth to your home.

For this summer box, I sought out small businesses that share my passion for quality craftsmanship and seasonal delights. The result is a collection of products that embrace the simple pleasures of summertime living.

No matter how you plan on spending the season ahead, let the products in the summer 2024 Sweet Home Subscription Box be your companion.

Without further ado, let’s dive into the excitement of unboxing and styling your Sweet Home Box!

Stoneware Tavern Pitcher

If there was one item I knew I wanted to include in the summer subscription box, it was a ceramic pitcher.

Why?! Because a pitcher represents more than just a vessel for holding liquids. It embodies the spirit of summer gatherings and lazy afternoons with family & friends.

This stoneware pitcher is a timeless and versatile piece.

Its sturdy construction and classic design make it perfect for serving up everything from refreshing iced teas and fruity sangrias to ice cold lemonade and sparkling water infused with fresh herbs and fruits.

But, I find the beauty of a ceramic pitcher lies in its functionality. Beyond just serving beverages, it can be repurposed in many different ways.

A pitcher is also a great vessel for displaying bouquets of fresh flowers or branches, holding kitchen utensils or wooden spoons, or just displaying on a shelf or hook for timeless home decor.

Really, your imagination is your only limitation when it comes to what a pitcher can be used for!

Creative Ways to Use Your Stoneware Pitcher:

  • SERVING DRINKS – The classic way to use a pitcher. Serve up beverages like iced tea, lemonade, water, sangria, or cocktails during gatherings with friends and family.
  • DISPLAY FLOWERS – Use the pitcher as a vase to display fresh flowers. The rustic charm of the stoneware adds a touch of natural beauty.
  • UTENSIL HOLDER – Place the pitcher on your kitchen counter or dining table to hold wooden stirring spoons, spatulas, ladles, or other kitchen utensils. It keeps them organized and within easy reach while adding a decorative touch.
  • DECORATIVE ACCENT – Even when not in use, a stoneware pitcher can serve as a decorative accent in your home. Display it on a shelf, mantel, or kitchen hutch to add a little charm to your decor.
  • WATERING CAN – Use the pitcher to water your indoor plants or small garden. Its spout makes it easy to pour water.
  • ICE BUCKET – Fill the pitcher with ice cubes to keep a bottle of wine chilled during outdoor parties or picnics.

Embroidered Linen Kitchen Towel

The grapevine embroidered linen kitchen towel included in this box is worth the price of admission!

Made from 100% cotton and adorned with exquisite embroidery, each tea towel is a masterpiece in itself.

The intricate designs are meticulously stitched using thread imported from France, courtesy of my talented friend Melissa of Lambert Cottage.

Embroidered tea towels are included in the Sweet Home Box for use in the kitchen.

I first discovered Melissa’s beautiful dish towels a few years back, and I’ve been captivated by them ever since. Their charm and quality made them an obvious choice when curating items for this subscription box.

What makes these towels even more special is that each one is hand embroidered, which means no two are exactly alike.

They’re truly one-of-a-kind pieces that will add a touch of elegance to your kitchen in any season, not just summer.

Here’s the best part…these embroidered linen kitchen towels are exclusive to the Sweet Home Box. You won’t find them available for purchase anywhere else, making them a coveted & priceless addition to your home.

Tea Towel Care Instructions: To remove wrinkles from the tea towel when you unbox it; spritz with cold water, straighten the towel with your fingers, and allow to air dry. An iron on the highest steam setting can be used as well. Machine wash towels in cold water and tumble dry low or air dry on a flat surface.

Infused with the invigorating aroma of a freshly cut herb garden, this candle captures summertime bliss in a mason jar.

As you light it, you’ll be surrounded by a cozy, spiced bouquet of fresh basil and spearmint, mixed with clean notes of subtly sweet apple and light florals.

It’s like bringing the outdoors in, instantly transforming your home into a space of natural tranquility.

Mint: Garden in a Bag

In the spirit of community and shared experiences, I thought it might be a fun idea for those of us who ordered the Sweet Home Box, to embark on a journey of growing our own fresh herbs together.

Herbs, in my opinion, have always been underrated.

Not only do they add flavor and freshness to our meals, but they also bring a touch of nature’s beauty into our homes.

There’s something special about grabbing a sprig of mint or parsley from your own garden and incorporating it into your favorite dishes.

That’s why I included the Mint Garden in a Bag in this box. It’s a fun and accessible way for us to connect with nature, nurture our green thumbs (hopefully not brown thumbs), and reap the rewards of our efforts.

Contained within this little brown bag are the beginnings of our very own herb garden…isn’t that neat!

With just a bit of sunlight, water, and care, we can watch as these tiny mint seeds sprout and grow into flourishing plants, ready to be harvested and enjoyed.

So, are you ready to roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, and join me on this herb growing adventure together?!

A few ways to use Mint

  • Add a sprig of fresh mint as a garnish to your drinks.
  • Create a refreshing infused water by adding fresh mint leaves to a pitcher of water along with slices of lemon or cucumber.
  • Make a mint pesto by blending together fresh mint leaves, garlic, Parmesan cheese, pine nuts, lemon zest & juice, and olive oil. Use it as a sauce for pasta, a spread for sandwiches, or a topping for grilled meats and vegetables.
  • Muddle mint leaves with sugar and lime juice to make a classic mojito, or add them to a gin & tonic for a refreshing twist.
  • Use fresh mint to add a pop of color and flavor to your favorite desserts. Chop mint leaves and sprinkle them over bowls of fresh fruit salad or yogurt parfait for a refreshing and healthy treat.
  • Create a fragrant simmer pot by combining fresh mint leaves with lime slices, thyme, and vanilla extract in a pot of simmering water.
