Hudson Grace officially opened the doors to its new Palo Alto location on Thursday, but we snuck in late yesterday for a quick look around. Tucked in between Mayfield Bakery & Cafe and Calafia Cafe & Market (and across from Trader Joe's), the boutique features long tablescapes, exposed beams, and beautiful built-in shelves, stocked with new delights for even the most seasoned host or hostess.
It's a homecoming of sorts for co-owner Monelle Totah, who started her career in home goods at the Williams-Sonoma in Palo Alto nearly 25 years ago. Totah and co-owner Gary McNatton decided on the Town & Country Village address because they enjoy the kind of marketplace that serves the entire spectrum of shopping and service needs.
Stop into the new store —whether you're shopping for yourself, a housewarming, or a wedding registry— and we promise you'll discover new treasures to inspire your next spring soirée.
