Hola! Your May Box is full of local Mexican flavors from all over Louisiana. We wanted to pack your box full with your very own local Louisiana fiesta!!

Senoritas we hope you enjoy this box as much as we did putting it together!

We wanted to pack your April Box bright, cheerful, and full of sunshine! This spring has been gorgeous with colorful Azaleas blooming all over Louisiana. We created a brand new t-shirt to celebrate early spring in Louisiana. We also sought out some fantastic local Louisiana businesses to sprinkle their own springtime flair in the box. There’s something for everyone in this box.
Lagniappe: Louisiana Azaleas Tee:
Vibrant azaleas blooming and blowing in the wind are the epitome of spring here in the south. We have been so delighted by the early, colorful blooms this year, that we never want them to go away! What better way to enjoy those gorgeous blooms all year long than on a super soft SFT shirt. Let’s just say we added a little lagniappe to the shirt and hope it brings you the joy of springtime every time you wear it.

Hand Drawn Magnolia Leaf Print
Line Ave Calligraphy; https://www.etsy.com/shop/LineAveCalligraphy
This Louisiana magnolia leaf print was illustrated by hand and printed to add a pop of Louisiana heritage to any space. Lauren is from Shreveport, Louisiana hince her business name. “Line Avenue” is a popular street in Shreveport. She wanted something that represented Louisiana and would be instantly recognizable, but not seasonal and with a neutral color scheme, so it could stay out all year and fit into anyone's décor and this is what she came up with. We instantly fell in love with this print and knew our subscribers would too! Magnolia’s in the springtime are just gorgeous and now you get to have a piece of that wherever you are!
