Labor Day weekend is approaching which marks the offical end to summer. This is sad news to a summer lover like myself but I do enjoy the months ahead, cooler weather, the excitement of the holidays nearing, and speading time with family and friends.
These next few weeks are ideal for entertaining outside. Here are our favorites pieces to transition from summer to fall!

This is the best piece to entertain with because it is so functional and typically the center of the table; so let it be the WOW piece! Our favorite platters to take you from summer to fall are Bella Bianca, Merletto and Medici. They are neutural and work within your color scheme.
They are perfect when entertaining outside for your BBQ's or use them to serve family style and of course they are perfect for your Thanksgiving Turkey!
Also a great piece it transitions from serving up delicious summer salads and veggies to warm winter/fall veggies like yams, and mashed potatos! Show it off! Don't tuck it away in your cupboard leave it on your counter for fruits and oohs and aahs!
Another favorite is Bella Bianca!
This is always a fun category! Our new Stout Glass is perfect for your favorite brew then later for a hot toddy or hot chocolate!

Nothing says fall is on its way like our Animale Collection! You just feel like putting on your favorite sweater and sipping your favorite Oktoberfest beer.
Cheers to the new season!
