The Gals of H&H Collective
Lydia Ellison Howerton is excited to be realizing the dream of fuss free linen cocktail napkins with her soul sister and collaborator Sarah. Lydia lives in Los Angeles with her husband Drew. She loves reading, cooking, yoga, board games, family lunches and catching up with her pals over a glass of wine. She owns the company Apples & Onions LA, a boutique private chef and event design company and can be seen styling parties around the world, the web and at home on her blog.
Sarah Simms Hendrix is a native Californian with an old soul and a serious knack for all things food, wine, and entertaining. A trained chef, food stylist, culinary consultant and author of the blog, La Femme Epicure, she lives for all things pretty and delicious. A strong belief in sourcing seasonally and locally and a personal mantra of quality over quantity keep Sarah inspired. Favorite things include foot rubs from her husband, handwritten love notes, paying it forward, farmer's markets, herb gardens, French rose and rainbow sprinkles.

Behind the Name
Howerton & Hendrix are our married names. Collective because we have design dreams beyond just napkins. Inspired by the functionality and easy elegance of the linen beach towels made by Lydia’s brother, Buck Ellison (of Deck Towel). The duo dreamt up the first prototypes in Sarah’s living room fueled by a bottle of rose (or two).
We feel our generation is more of the “cocktail napkin” type of entertainer. You may not have the time, budget or space for a five course dinner party but there is always time to gather your friends for some delicious snacks and libations in your living room or out on the back patio.
Our hope is that our cocktail napkins create a chic and effortless vibe, making your entertaining moments feel instantly pulled together.
