Welcome to The Merry Martini where each day is an occasion! From tea parties at age three to wine tasting parties today, I have always enjoyed entertaining and giving the perfect gift. With a degree in Interior Design from Miami University in Ohio, my goal is to combine my design background and entertaining experience to provide you with unique and useful items. Beautifully packaged and wrapped, these gifts are ideal for the perfect hostess or a special friend.
I was born and raised in south Florida…the result, a great appreciation for the tropics. A little sand, a little water, add some sun and a calypso band and it was always a party. I recently moved from Atlanta to Durham, North Carolina with Ryan, my supportive husband, Blitzen, our maltipoo, and Pumpkin, our calico cat. Living in Southern Cities, has given me the opportunity to learn about, enjoy and become deeply appreciative of southern hospitality.
When you combine a tropical flair with some southern hospitality, you get The Merry Martini style. Don’t forget to stir in some unwavering support from family, friends and two very special people, my parents Alan and Diana Bush who have helped make The Merry Martini a reality.
The Merry Martini will provide you with unique gifts, tips for entertaining, assistance with party planning, truly fabulous recipes, and my thoughts on making each day a celebration. Check out the blog and sign-up for my newsletter to stay up to date with the happenings at The Merry Martini. Don’t forget to stop in for our Happy Hour Specials to enjoy our current deals and promotions.
