Setting an Easter Brunch

Apr 9, 2014 2:36:25 PM

Spring is such a happy time of year and creating spring tables are so fun!  Here Mary Ann Hairfield, Director of Sales and Marketing at Arte Italica, set her breakfast bar for a Spring Brunch using Bella Bianca.

"Setting a spring or Easter table can be easy using things you have already in your home," says Mary Ann.  "I used a pitcher for a spring flower bouquet, vintage juice glasses, and linens that I had.  Bella Bianca dinnerware is so versitile and can be used as your everyday setting but can be dressed up for any type of entertaining."

Since I am from the south we love biscuits for breakfast, brunch and just about anytime.  For your next brunch try this receipe "Willard's Biscuits" from one of my dear friends!

We first launched our Bella Bianca collection in 2008, it was an immediate success!  Designed by an Italian fashion designer each piece is named for fashion embellishments such as ribbon, lace, scalloped and pique.  We wanted to take this collection to the next level and offer it in stoneware.  Originally made in black clay, a very durable material, we knew that stoneware was a buzz word but not only that it was indeed stronger.  Now.... to find a factory in Italy that makes dinnerware in stoneware, not an easy thing to find.

Lucky for us we found this wonderful small factory producing ceramics in a grey stoneware!

We use the same molds we used in the original Bella Bianca, making this transition seamless.  You can add on to your current collection with out telling the difference.

The only difference is a new stamp on the bottom of each piece.

Bella Bianca is a classic and now better than ever!
