Seasonal décor, table setting ideas, and gift-giving inspirations...

Fruit in soft colors creates a peaceful and beautiful compote.  We added just a few red raspberries for contrast.  You can create this with either artificial or real fruit.

A beautiful wreath on your door is the perfect way to welcome guests to your home.  We have lovely spring wreaths in stock.  Shop early for the best selection!

We are re-arranging our store, and have created an even larger space for the popular and beautiful Mariposa serveware and decorative accessories!

The beautiful hand woven pieces from Calaisio add a dimension of warmth to any table.  These pieces are stylish and durable.

Our new French flower containers have arrived, and we are busy organizing extra floral stems.

New! American-made Caskata dinnerware has added a monogramming option to their collection of nautical-inspired dinnerware.  Pieces can be monogrammed in blue, or in white on white.  The possibilities are endless with the colorful and fun collection.

Where would you like to sit at this table? We have set our main table with eight different spring blue place settings.  Stop by the store to vote for your favorite, and you will be entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate.  Voting continues through Saturday, April 8.

We have enlarged our selection of beautiful paper napkins and guest towels from Caspari!
