Holiday Entertaining

Dec 9, 2014 5:45:28 PM

Happy Holidays!

Its that time of year when we are busy decorating, shopping and entertaining.  

Here are some inspirations for your busy entertaining schedule.

Christmas Eve


Stay in and cozy up by the fire!  Serve your guest by candlelight but keep things casual.  Mixing our Tuscan collection with sparkly glass candlesticks and tealights keeps the evening fun and festive.  The Italians serve seafood on Christmas Eve, so pile the crab and lobsters onto any of our oversized serving pieces.


Christmas Brunch

Keep the vibe youthful and fun on Christmas morning.  Use Natale with Scavo Chargers mixed with your holiday santa and reindeer decor.  

Christmas Day Lunch or Dinner

Don't let the holiday end with out bringing out your finest!  Mix your formal china with a Vetro Gold Charger, Salad or Compote to add drama and instant glam!

Warm up!

Nov 18, 2014 4:29:29 PM

Recently we had our Merletto Antique Lace Cup and Saucer featured on Houzz.  Their feature was called "Warm Up with a Hot Drink" read the full article HERE.  

We also had a feature on Tea Time Magazine's website showing our Perlina Cup & Saucer being used as a soup cup.  All this exposure on this classic style got us thinking about some of our favorites!  So pour a hot chocolate, an Earl Grey or your favorite soup and Warm Up!

The holidays are here so it is time to get festive with our Natale Jumbo Cup and Saucer!  Perfect for any soup or cappuccino.

 

The Medici Cup & Saucer is such a classic, did you know that the symbol in Italian is called a giglio and the symbol of Florence?

Small in size but not on glam, the Vetro Gold Cup and Saucer eludes elegance.

Flower Magazine Nov/Dec 2014

Nov 7, 2014 11:29:35 AM

We are so excited to be apart of Flower Magazine in their Nov/Dec issue.  If you haven't heard of Flower before it is a beautifully done magazine that of course highlights flowers but this isn't a garden magazine. Flower does a wonderful job showcasing the use of flowers from tablescapes, weddings and entertaining.  Since we LOVE entertaining having an ad in this magazine made since!

We used an image from The Gathering of Friends Cookbook series.  We loved how they used our teacup as a container and mixed hydrangeas with vegetables, like turnips and artichokes.  

A BIG thanks to all the stores that participated in the ad!
