Coco Blaffer Elizabeth Hartnett Blair Burke PHOTOGRAPHY CHRIS BROWN. FIESTA FRENZY FOR Biscuit Opening SEPTEMBER | PAGE 46 | 2014 A delicious opening fête inaugurated the new Montrose store location of beloved Biscuit Home, with margaritas, a mariachi band, family, friends and bloggers gathered to congratulate owner Bailey McCarthy's five-times-larger home- wares boutique, which moved from Avalon Center on Westheimer a bit east to her own building at 1435 Westheimer. As guests entered the store, many stopped at the Paint Wall which covers the facade of the building, created by artist Mr. D, for a requisite selfie. In fact, so many people drive by and stop for a pic that the painting has its own hashtag, #biscuitpaintwall. Bailey, who also scribes the Peppermint Bliss blog, has stocked her newest emporium with her Biscuit-branded printed bed linens (in collaboration with childhood friend and textile designer Isabel Wilson), refinished vintage furniture all fashioned into luscious vignettes, jewelry, bath goods, cool baby gear, Smathers & Branson needlepoint accessories, party goods, and apothecary. Cristina Lynch was in from Dallas to showcase her hand-embroidered Mi Golondrina pillows and dresses (which are now carried in store) with her mom, Christine Lynch.
