Spring Table Inspirations

Mar 8, 2017 2:48:51 PM

As we prepare to shake off winter we get excited about what spring has to offer.  Warmer weather, blooming flowers and it seems like we gear up for more entertaining, bridal showers, Easter, Mother's Day just to name a few. 

Here are some inspirations to help you prepare your spring table.

Serve it up with flowers!

Nothing says spring like flowers!  Pick your favorite palette and use them to set the scene!

Add some pastel linens to the table in pink, peach or soft blue.

We also love mixing vintage china with some of our popular chargers.  It's a great way of celebrating tables you grew up with in a new and fresh way.

Finezza Blue

Adding a touch of whimsey to the table is also a sweet idea for this time of year.  We are in love with these sweet speckled eggs.

Adding a sweet rabbit or lamb is also pretty adorable.

Another thing we love is incorporating fresh produce (fruits and veggies) into your decor or centerpieces.

Transition-Summer to Fall

Sep 2, 2015 9:26:41 AM

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!

The Serving Platter

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!

Other great choices are Finezza and of course Tuscan!

The Serving Bowl

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! 

Favorites include Tuscan, Finezza and our NEW Autunno Fresco!

 

Another favorite is Bella Bianca!


Barware

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!
