Summer with Style!



Changing our vignettes is a constant at J Banks Retail!   We love to surprise our shoppers with fresh and fun ideas.   Something as simple as switching out pillows can make a dramatic impact!  Our creamy upholstery pieces were adorned with deep navy, olive green and khaki pillows to provide a masculine atmosphere in honor of Father’s Day.    Immediately after, we seamlessly transitioned to summer by replacing the khaki and green with pops of red.  Adding whimsical melamine dinnerware, faux Waterford acrylic glassware and portable picnic coolers enhanced the story by creating a playful and fun display! 

Thank you to KPM flooring for letting us borrow the perfect finishing touch – a blue and white diamond swirl rug.  Make sure to visit KPM Flooring online or in person.  KPM Flooring is located within our 35 Main Street building and they always have the latest rug, tile and flooring selections.  This particular rug can be customized to your room by selecting the size and colors that are appropriate to your decor.  

 “Summer with Style” is easy to achieve by combining fabulous finds from our retail store with your cherished traditions! 

Our white lacquer placemats with latticework detail are the perfect backdrop for the Antheor china, navy and white batik napkins and whimsical starfish napkin rings! 

Pasta, potato salad, fruit, you name it – we have all the perfect serving pieces!  Our china selections are available in red, white and blue (yellow and ivory too!).


Details – Add a Twist to Tradition!

Personalize your dinner table with individual placecard holders (our copper fish are only $7 each)!  Be creative!  Instead of your guest’s names, display patriotic quotations that will remind them of all the reasons we celebrate July 4th (coordinating placecards are available in colors ranging from marigold to red.  And…don’t forget to pick up the matching, printable dinner menus).  These simple touches will add serious style to your summer soirees!

Alfresco dining (or any type of dining for that matter) is always better by candlelight!  Red seeded glass votives, hyacinth flower candles, and beautiful Belgium “Baobab” candles will help set the perfect mood. 

 Our retail associates love sharing tips and little secrets that can make something good into something GREAT!

Stop by J Banks for all your summertime entertaining needs.
