June is finally here, and now more than ever is a time to surround ourselves with items that inspire happiness. With that in mind, I’ve rounded up goodies guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Few things in life bring me more joy than chocolate, and these brunch-themed bites from Maggie Louise Confections are as playful as they are delicious. Want to see what happy in a box looks like? Then place an order with Boynton Beach–based Happi Crafts, which decorates everyday necessities, such as clocks, coasters, and spoons, with a smattering of sprinkles. Of course, nothing enlivens a home more than art, so select cheerful pieces like a melting pop sculpture by Betsy Enzensberger or a heart painting by Jupiter resident Nicole Newsted. These picks by Emily Pantediles will help you have a happy June in every way imaginable.
