There's something about the Rockwellesque vibe of Brookside that brings to mind the aroma of freshly baked goods. This confectionery candle contains a blend of warm vanilla cake and sweet buttercream frosting which can be easily imagined cooling in the kitchen of a beautiful Brookside Boulevard bungalow. 

NOTES:  FRESH BAKED VANILLA CAKE & VANILLA BUTTERCREAM

 

In 1920, the same developer responsible for the Country Club Plaza was looking to provide some of Kansas City's residents with a community in which they could "plan for permanence". The idea was, that by providing families with lovely homes, on tree lines streets, within walking distance of a "shop of every nature", the neighborhood would be solidified as a place people could live happily for decades, sustaining Brookside as an entity and securing property values for years to come. Brookside's design is credited as an originator of the "New Urbanism" design movement and city planning style and of redlining through the use of exclusionary code and deed restrictions.

A visit to modern-day Brookside quickly confirms the original idea has been realized. Meticulously maintained homes with manicured lawns dot tree lined streets, hidden pocket parks tucked away throughout. The neighborhood still possesses a nearly perfect facade and family friendly air, all within a short walk's distance of a local "shop of every nature".
