Transition-Summer to Fall

Labor Day weekend is approaching which marks the official 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 spending 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 neutral 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!


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!
