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


Aqua-colored glass dinnerware and serveware creates a serene, ocean-inspired table.  These pieces are all dishwasher safe, and handmade in California by Annieglass.

This looks like we just went to the farmer's market!  Use this life-like artificial fruits and vegetables in bowls and compotes around your house for a fresh, colorful, vibrant accent.

It looks like these these glass fish plates are going for a swim!  Add blue linens to your table to create the illusion of water, and build from there!

Simple, classic dinnerware is a perfect match for a stylish print tablecloth.  Add soft-colored napkins that blend in, and a centerpiece that matches the theme of your cloth.  Bon appetit!

We are all going crazy over this brand new collection from Julia Knight.  This bronze-colored metal serveware will bring the perfect organic touch to your table.  Looks fantastic with formal or casual settings. These pieces exude style, while simultaneously adding a welcoming warmth to your table or party. 

What is summer without strawberries?! Add to the delicious fun of this favorite berry with kitchen accessories, Strawberry Lemonade Mix, and Strawberry & Cream Dip Mix.

These bird-inspired accessories are all wonderful summer gifts or hostess gifts.  The deep rich blues on the tray are so soothing during the summer months!

Renovation of our new Tableware Room is complete.  Plenty of space to get creative with dinnerware, flatware and glassware.  Stop by and mix and match, even if just for fun!

The store renovation is moving up to the front of the store next.  First stop: painting the office door! The surrounding walls will follow. And while we are looking at the pewter shelves, a reminder that all of our pewter can be engraved.  It makes a distinctive gift!
