Making Mom Feel Special!

Apr 20, 2015 12:43:12 PM

If you are like most people Mother's Day rolls around and although we know and love our mother's we are stumped on what to get her.  Another gift card for a massage, that cute cardigan at the mall, done those already, right?  Encourage your mom to support local businesses and pop over to a local store and register, now you say, what? Register?  That is for brides!  Nope anyone can register and every mom should!  She gets to pick out what she wants, maybe a new fresh set of dinnerware, or the wine glasses she had her eye on.  As we know, there are always those items you would like to have but don't want to buy for yourself!

Another idea for mom, throw her a fabulous brunch!  Here are some ideas on how to do it and how you can incorporate Arte Italica pieces that you can "Gift" to her after!

Our Tuscan 3-tiered Stand will be perfect for your brunch and later used for cupcakes for all those birthday parties!  The Vintage Pitcher is also stunning filled with flowers!

Cherubino makes a perfect piece to serve on, then later, use them on a nightstand as a ring holder or in the bathroom for soap.

Anna Glassware as well as Verona can be so versitile.  We only have a few Tuscan Pitchers remaining in this style, get one now!

Our Medici Collection is one of our favorites and best selling.  Any piece in the collection is a star!

Our Scavo Chargers and Puccini Fruit bring color and interest to the table.

We are retiring the Splendore Collection so grab a piece from this spectatular collection before its gone!

Happy Mother's Day!

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!
