Let’s face it, the weather is scorching, so, turn the AC all the way up, and dress your home up with our favorite beach themed items. Also, wear nothing but flowy cotton dresses around your house. Our nightgowns are where it’s at because they are comfortable, loose, and breezy. Other than these gorgeous nightgowns, we also have other ideas to keep you busy this summer like gifting friends and neighbors gorgeous nautical embroidered towels, pillows, and tissue box covers. Check out our roundup below and let us know what’s your favorite!
Let’s get nautical! We’re into the end of July – have you dressed up your home with some fun beachy designs? Start with our Siesta lady….
and our gorgeous coral embroidery….
Coral Embroidered Items
I’m sure your little girls and boys are complaining about this heatwave too so put them in cool cotton pant sets and English girl’s dresses. Some of our favorites (including pillow designs) for summer below:
Heading to the beach? There’s nothing quite like our new one-size fits all floral embroidered caftans for carefree caftan days. A great cover up and 100% cotton, easy to wash and dry and most convenient to pull over a bikini or wear while pottering around the house trying to keep cool.
Sealife Cosmetic Bags
Have a wonderful time choosing from our roundup. We can’t get enough of some of these gift ideas for friends. Also if you’re looking for a comfortable night’s sleep during summer, we recommend not only wearing one of our breezy nighties but sleeping on a CBD infused pillow from pilozzz – every pillow is made of hypoallergenic down alternative fibre and a superior double knit cover. It is the most luxurious cooling pillow you will ever own! A new company that seems to please a lot of our customers.
Have a great rest of your week! We’ll leave you with these happy new mermaid designs because…. we all want to be a mermaid in summer, don’t we?
One of my dear friends is getting married in April and I have been coming up with creative ways to splurge on her with fun knick knacks and sweet gifts. Her wedding is going to be in Florida at Jupiter Beach Club and we decided that we would have all her bridesmaids wear Jacaranda Living while getting make up and hair done. I’m so excited to help make it happen.
FOR THE BRIDE
I had the bride go through the Jacaranda Living website and pick a few of her favorite things. It was interesting to see how much she really loved all the nighties as not just to wear to bed but to wear as a beach cover up on the beach and by the pool. The Lisa dress in particular works well for her wedding because it has her wedding logo colors with the blue stitching detail on the bodice. It immediately jumped out to her.
Nothing gets more comfortable than a caftan especially one that has a flattering adjustment with drawstring at the waist. The embroidered flowers along the body add some elegance and character while long sleeves keep you protected from the sun. It’s a perfect item for the beach and especially for the bride-to-be.
Now something for the bride that’s a bit more romantic…
What the bridesmaids wear is very important on the wedding day for photos and to set the mood. It’s even better when bridesmaids are in the same outfit. My friend wants the bridesmaids to be in matching cotton nightshirts with the blue piping that matches her wedding colors. It’s the cutest idea and will look so nice to have all the bridesmaids in the same outfits while they get ready.
All our sleepwear is made from pure, soft, lightweight, natural cotton fabric that is breathable, durable and extremely comfortable to wear. No need for dry cleaning. Our 100% cotton fabrics only need to be gently washed and cared for in your home. Keep washer and dryer options gentle and cool, not hot, to enable your fine fabric to become softer and cozier with every wash.
And lastly, the slippers and cosmetic bags. The cosmetic bags with blue embroidered holly hocks is a new design by Jacaranda Living and my friend chose it for her wedding because it’s such a beautiful flower that will go nicely with the floral arrangements at her wedding.
I hope these helped you when you start thinking about your wedding or a good friend’s. Jacaranda Living has so many items that work well for weddings, bridal parties, baby showers, bachelorettes, and more. What fun to choose items and then to also personally monogram them with your best friend’s initials? Have fun shopping our new arrivals today and let us know if you want to customize anything.
This week we had a successful trade show at the Javit's Center in NYC! There were a lot of new and old faces who came into our booth, and we are so pleased with the feedback we received about our newer styles. Thank you to everyone who came out to support and shop our collections. Here is a little recap of what we showcased at the show and to give you a peep of our newer styles that you might have missed!
Embroidered Guest Towels
Our embroidered guest towels have always been a customer favorite since we started. Boutiques in both resort areas and cities do really well with our wide assortment of designs on Waffle Weave, Terry Cloth and Linen. They make a perfect hostess gift and powder room pick-me-up! We recently added some new styles to the collection, which customers have been raving about. We really appreciate your opinions as well as your suggestions for inspiration! The new Sand Pipers were a big hit this time around. We showed them in blue and white, and will be doing them in shades of sand following quite a few requests at the show.
We work closely with our team in South Africa who stitch the designs and make each item with meticulous attention to detail. If you have new ideas for a design you'd like to see, we'd love to hear them.
Our embroidered designs on children's pillows have been growing rapidly! We’re excited to showcase even more playful imagery of kids playing to bring smiles to your little one’s faces. Discover the ones we showed at the show below and let us know your favorite!
Wildlife at Leisure Collection
As you know, we tie most of our designs to our African roots – the very reason we started Jacaranda Living! We recently wrote a blog post on our Whimsical Collection and what makes it so special. It just launched and has already been getting a lot of positive feedback. The cosmetic bags did really well, especially the ones of beautiful animals in the wild or whimsically resting on a couch.
These cosmetic bags are unique and the ultimate must-have to hold your smaller items such as pens, lipsticks and toothbrushes. Pick your favorite design from our collection here.
Cosmetic Bag and Matching Slippers
To round out the last bit from the show, here's a shot of our favorite new Bucket of Lavender design, which adds a little French accent to the collection. Hold onto those summer memories of yours in our Bucket of Lavender! You can shop it on tissue box covers, slippers, cosmetic bags, and guest towels.

Monogramming for Wholesale Customers to sell in their Retail stores
Pillows and spa products can be designed with just “custom embroidery” such as a name for a retail client, or a custom word or logo ie. “Kennebunkport” for a wholesaler purchasing for perhaps a resort area town. As a retail store we can create for you custom monogrammed products you can sell in your store, that would be unique to you. We would not sell a custom product to another retail customer.
Another option for wholesale customers is to have one of our designs on the product along with the custom monogramming for a theme that might relate to a summer beach location or another one of our many embroidery designs that might appeal to those customers based on a theme, such as flowers, nautical, beach or nature.
Custom Monogramming for Unique Personalized Wedding and Baby Gifts
Custom embroidered pillows make unique and custom gifts for weddings, baby showers and holiday gifts. A pair of custom embroidered pillows with a design and a couple’s family name, are the “perfect wedding gift” giving your gift personality and personalization.
