About Us

Welcome to The Quintessential Hostess where we are fastidious about bringing you the highest quality hostess wares and gift items, personalized just for you. Searching the world, we bring you the highest quality items like John Boos cutting boards and Victorinox Swiss Army knives.  And what we cannot find, we will make such as our ever popular reclaimed wood barwares. We then design handsome monograms and darling motifs to engrave one-of-a-kind personalization just for you.

We are a brother and sister team who began The Quintessential Hostess in 2013.  Leslie loves to entertain and does so often.  From 70's fondue parties to cocktails on the terrace, she is always looking for an excuse to entertain and has a great passion for finding unique serving pieces and trays for each event. Jeff is a robotics engineer who has always had a passion for wood craft and fine details.  He has exceptionally high quality standards and is always looking for a way to make things better (that's the engineer in him).  Together, they teamed up to bring new and unique hostess wares and gift items.  What Leslie cannot find, Jeff will make, and then we will personalize it just for you.

We hope you love these wonderful products as much as we do.  Enjoy!
