There's something to be said for a little tool that does just one thing and does it really, really well. I have several friends who just rave about this Stem Gem and say it does the best job of removing the stem and no extra fruit at all. (See a full review of it here!)
This wood Dansk salad bowl is a true classic - an investment, sure, but one that will last you through 20 years of summer salads. Cambria used one for her Pizza Party on the Porch Gathering and says: "This bowl is huge and great for serving to a crowd. It's also really solid and beautiful in person."
A pretty jar for picnics, with an interior column you can fill with ice, citrus, or herbs to keep water or sangria chilled and delicious. Most of the melted ice stays inside the central compartment, too, keeping the drink from getting watered down. Holds 2.8 gallons.
Chilewich brings their smart eye for color and durable, washable construction to mats - which, like their table runners and placemats - are bright but still sleek. A good option for the kitchen or just outside the garden door.
There are lots of city-centric totes out there, but I'm a big fan of Claudia Pearson's colorful, whimsical odes to London, New York, and Brooklyn. Her totes are a great way to flaunt your city pride at summer farmers markets.
