Look what I found at GEARYS this week: the perfect home scents and fragrances! | Fran Berger

No matter how gorgeous your décor is or how great the food, drinks, and conversations are, the first thing your guests will notice when they come into your space is how your home smells. These beautiful home fragrances from @drvranjesfirenze practically transport you to Florence, Italy, where they’re made. Not only do they remind you of those romantic winding streets through a city known for art and food, even the bottle is inspired by Brunelleschi’s Dome in Florence’s iconic Duomo. GEARYS carries three different scents in this line, find the perfect one for you. Or if you prefer candles, @gearysbeverlyhills has an amazing variety of gorgeous ones from @baobabcollection in multiple sizes. They are all hand poured (in multiple pouring phases) into beautiful hand-blown glass containers. The wonderful thing about these candles is that after the candle is completely burned you still have the amazing glass containers to use as décor throughout your home.

Fran Berger is unquestionably an entertaining dynamo, with an inimitable combination of elegance and edge. After mastering an incredibly successful over 20-year run as the original owner of The Farm of Beverly Hills®, a much-ballyhooed Beverly Hills landmark and Los Angeles area mini-chain of restaurants, where the Cobb Salad and Brownies have become gastronomic staples, Fran has gone on to earn her place in the national spotlight as one of the country's go-to home entertaining experts, becoming a recognizable face on daytime television and in consumer lifestyle media.

Fran's years of knowledge as an established entrepreneur and restaurateur are fused with her love of entertaining. Fran recognized people have so many concerns over entertaining — what to serve, how to serve it, and how to plan overall — making her ability to provide guidance, recommendations, and assistance in curating a personal entertaining style in high demand.

Fran doesn't plan parties. Instead, she works closely with her clients, who like a sophisticated lifestyle. She helps them curate the perfect bespoke experience for their guests. She knows all of her clients want to impress their guests with sophistication. Those she chooses to work with include some clients who may be just dipping their feet into the shallow end of the pool vis-à-vis entertaining and not sure where to start. They may need help organizing or reorganizing their dining areas after many years in the same home. Or, perhaps maybe those who have just purchased a beautiful new home and are now looking for the perfect refined collection of kitchenware.

As she excitedly proclaims, "If you're not comfortable entertaining, you're simply not going to do it, and then you've lost the opportunity for the joy in your life of having people come together. To me, this is the essence of life itself — inviting people together to get to know one another on a deeper level and having great fun over fabulous food."
