Draper James and Crate and Barrel have once again partnered up to present a new collection perfect for couples and to-be-weds who want to host a backyard get-together during warmer days.
The newest collaboration, called the “Cookout Collection,” features an entire host of outdoor entertaining offerings, including picnic baskets, blankets, and of course, outdoor-friendly wine glasses and plates. “The party’s out back, y’all,” Reese Witherspoon said in partnership with Crate. “Fire up the grill and invite everybody for cold drinks and great eats.”
As with all of Draper James’ wide-ranging products, pieces from the “Cookout Collection” are inspired by the South, with a charming Southern twist thoughtfully-integrated into every item. Other cute offerings include fun, bright blue placemats with the words “Dig In” emblazoned across the top, all the way to stemless wine glasses with acrylic letters: “Cheers, Y’all.” (The color palette for this latest collection is a fresh blue and white with the occasional touch of red).
Other items of note include a white enamel serving platter with the words “Come and Get It,” as well as patterned table runners ideal for sprucing up any backyard cookout. Prices are totally reasonable as well, with items ranging from $6 to $60, available both in-store and on CrateandBarrel.com and DraperJames.com.Timing-wise, the mid-April launch makes it perfect for springtime engagement parties and bridal showers, or even a girls’ day out with a picnic blanket and picnic basket to boot.
Draper James and Crate and Barrel first partnered up last spring for some charming registry gifts that married Crate and Barrel’s sleek, practical designs and Witherspoon’s colorful, fun aesthetic.
“Growing up in the South, I’ve learned to love presentation and entertaining, which is why I’m so excited for the Draper James [heart] Crate and Barrel co-branded collection,” she told People at the time. “It perfectly captures the spirit of Southern get-togethers with a blend of modern style.”
