Getting Your Guest Room Holiday Ready!

Nov 15, 2016 4:15:47 PM

With the holiday's upon us, most of us will be opening our homes to holiday guests.  Make sure you have your guest room ready to make them feel special during this special time of year!

Add a tray to the bedside table to neatly arrange items like water, flowers and candles.  It is also nice to have books, current magazines or family photo albums in the room for guests to look at before bed.

Adding a vase or small pitcher with flowers is always a nice touch as well as a small pitcher and glass for water.

Setting up a small coffee bar in your guest room would be such a treat and give the feeling of being in a hotel.  Add special cup and saucers or mugs.

With Thanksgiving getting closer each day we wanted to talk about setting your table.

Decor Gold Design-Thanksgiving

Recently Decor Gold Designs featured on their blog a stunning table set for Thanksgiving.  

Read the full post HERE.

Fresh flowers and velvet pumpkins set the stage.

We love how she used simple white napkins tied with twine or jute.

If you follow this blog (if not you should be) then you have seen our Perlina and Tuscan collections used throughout the year in different settings.  It shows how versitile this collection is for every season or event!

If your home lends itself to a pallet of earthtones setting your table with Medici for Thanksgiving is always a beautiful choice.

The richness and warmth is so inviting, along with the handmade craftsmanship.

Of course setting a romantic table like French Country Cottage (another truly amazing blog to follow) is always a wonderful choice!

Choosing a lacy pattern like our Merletto or Finezza helps to create a magical table.

Cinderella pumpkins act as centerpieces and vases which set the mood.

Enjoy your Thanksgiving with your friends and family this year!

Halloween Entertaining!

Oct 12, 2016 10:25:13 AM

Volterra Nero

Halloween is the kick-off for Fall Entertaining! But lets face it, there are not a lot of options out there for setting a beautiful table for Halloween but we have you covered!  Our Volterra Nero is stunning year long but for a Halloween dinner party it makes an incredible statement.  Its ethereal black swirls are almost magical!

We also love our Giuletta mixed with Finezza Grey!  Again, such a beautiful combination anytime of year but add in Vetro Silver and other touches to create a haunted Victorian table.

Giuletta and Finezza

Don't forget to add ambiance like our pewter candelabras.

Seance anyone?

Another favorite is our Volterra Collection mixed with our Black Scavo Charger.  Like its family member Volterra Nero, it too has an ethereal effect, except this time we think about foggy nights, ghosts and cobwebs!

Volterra with Scavo

Pair with these spider napkin rings!

Of course keeping it traditional is always classic.  Rust Chargers with white dinnerware like our Bella Bianca or Tuscan mixed with pumpkins sets a beautiful harvest table!

Add pewter serving piece and serve apple cider in our Taverna Stout Glasses!

The fall season is upon us!  Time to start transitioning our wardrobes and homes to a fall feeling.  Recently French Style Magazine featured one of our favorite bloggers, Courtney from French Country Cottage, in their Fall issue.

In the issue Courtney talks about decorating for fall especially with floral designs for your table, door (think gorgeous wreaths) and garlands for any surface.

French Style Magazine

We were so pleased that she used our Bella Bianca Dinnerware to grace the table.  It goes to show that white dinnerware works for all seasons and helps to create a fresh look for a fall table.

Here are our favorite pieces for freshening up your home!
