Bourbon Tasting at Gracious

We love hosting at Gracious, not only because we like to show off our decorated store,but also because we love being Gracious hostesses, and throwing entertaining events for friends.  Most recently we paired up with Natalie from Beautiful Booze to host a DIY Bourbon Tasting event.  We learned from an expert about bourbon history and flavors, and tasted very different bourbons, all while getting to use our wonderful barware. Natalie is a Seattle based cocktail blogger who writes amazing inventive cocktail recipes for every season and occasion.

The event was a success and we put use to our wonderful vintage dishware.


We are so happy to link up with Natalie and hope to host another event soon!  If you’re interested in hosting your own DIY bourbon tasting event, read Natalie’s blog on how to make it a success.




The 2014 Gracious Garden Party is Here!

After this winter, we’re all ready for Spring!  And with Spring comes Gracious’ annual Garden Party! This Friday and Saturday, April 4th and 5th, Gracious formerly invites you to view our beautiful vintage outdoor items.  

Now that the snow is (hopefully) finally clearing, it’s time to think about how to decorate your patios, outdoor porches, and outside spaces with gorgeous vintage items.

Are you looking for an updated look for your patio, now that better weather is headed our way? Does your garden need a sculpture, or new details to bring it back to life with the spring? How about turning your patio into the ultimate entertaining room with an outdoor bar cart and some new seating – with a pop of color! Come for some springtime inspiration. This is the only time of year that we focus specifically on outdoor vintage gear.

And, of course, we’re making the day full of fun with food, garden tips, prizes, and a whole lot of vintage fun!

Whether you’re in for pots for plants, tablescapes, decorations, or just some tips, stop by Gracious this Friday or Saturday.
