11 GAMES THAT ARE PRETTY ENOUGH TO DOUBLE AS DECOR

Now that we’ve made it to week 812 of quarantine, you’ve most likely become reacquainted with your favorite board games. Am I right? We’ve made our way through a number of puzzles (we loved this one) and a round of Gin Rummy is now a routine part of cocktail hour. (I’m someone who really enjoys games so the fact that my husband has to #stayhome and play with me has actually been a highlight of this whole experience.)

While I definitely have a soft spot for the old-school boxed classics, these days, games are looking a lot more stylish. There are so many beautifully designed games out there – from luxurious dominoes to centerpiece-worthy Monopoly sets and hand-painted backgammon boards! (This puzzle was so pretty that I actually considered framing it after we completed it.) Some games have gotten quick upgrades in the form of fresh colors like this Jenga set and these beautiful blue dominoes, and then there are others that are totally over the top like this acrylic Ouija board from Edie Parker. If you’re looking to update your own selection or perhaps gift one to a friend (these playing cards are just the thing!), scroll through the below shopping list for all of my favorites.
