August is – Peaches and Cream!
MMK Saturday Guest Post for Summer!
Hot August days and nights bring luscious peaches to our minds and lips…with summer fun!!
Homemade Peach ice cream…cobbler, pies, jams, drinks, and salads! Yum!
Picked from trees and bushels for our delight, this delicious fruit was so savored in years gone by, they were canned and bottled for enjoyment during the rest of the year!!
Georgia Peaches are celebrated this month!! We never want summer to end…yet it is in sight!! Our dear Beth celebrates her special day soon…
Let’s celebrate Beth, all August babies, and Summer with Peaches and Cream, a little Bitter Peach Tom Ford scent, and a fabulous Peach Bellini or two!!
Pitchers of them bring happy memories of my days at Harry’s Bar in The Sherry-Netherland Hotel, New York, as well as the original Harry’s Bar and Restaurant in Venice established by Giuseppe Cipriani in 1931! I had the privilege of lunching there with Countess Elsie Gozzi of Fortuny, her beloved greyhound, and my Gump’s Boss while organizing exclusive textile products for our fabulous Italian Event. It was her favorite spot, certainly a special memory…and of course, we taxied by boat, dog in tow!
The Peach Bellini was created in 1948 – so chic, frosty, and festive – an elegant sparkling combination of white peach puree and Prosecco! Harry’s Bar and Restaurant is legendary as the meeting place for artists, writers, royalty, divas, and celebrities – American and European. Toasts and cheers!!
What could be better and more beautiful with your Peach Bellini than Peach Caprese, of course!! Italy awaits!! Basil and Balsamic – Yes!! Stop by Kelly’s Kitchen for more inspiring recipes for this delectable fruit!!
As you prepare to entertain, pamper your body and spirit for that famed Peaches and Cream glow …with a little Nectarine & Honey, perhaps??
Tom Ford continues to excite and create!! His Bitter Peach Eau de Parfum is certainly proof! “Explicitly sweet and dangerously voluptuous. Like the full-flavored fruit at its most ripe, the scent is erotic by nature.” – Tom Ford. His Pêche de Vigne and Sicilian blood orange oil release the sweetness…at its peak. The heart reveals rum-infused Davana oil and patchouli. Elegant Tom Ford, as always!
Nectarine Blossom & Honey is one of Jo Malone London’s best-loved scents…around the entire world!! Luscious!! The Body Crème is decadent – use before spritzing. It moisturizes and lasts and lasts!!
Create delicate ambiance for your Home with Bellini-inspired Scent from Italy – Enjoy with cheers and sips of Peach Bellini… till next week!! xoxo MMK
