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


Close-up of our wintry, botanical Christmas tree.  Frosted mini pine cones, green berries, blueberries, and snowy stems combine to create a peaceful tree!


Our tree and fireplace create a wintry, green pine look.  We especially love the frosty snowflakes and the owls on the trees.  Notice the subtle effect the blueberries have on the tree.


The stunning hand-crafted glass Vermont evergreens from Simon Pearce come in a variety of sizes and textures, creating a sparkling forest.  Which is your favorite?


For a cozy and inviting winter table we chose to mix black, rattan and plaid with the Juliska Country Estate WInter Frolic dinnerware. Frosted red berries complete the table.


This cuddly black bear is climbing in one of several tabletop Christmas trees in the store!


Pines and greens, mixed with woods, make for natural and soothing Christmas decor.


Beautiful Juliska dinnerware shows just how striking a gray and brown combination can be!  Notice the plaid placemat.  It just blends into the background and lets the dinnerware take center stage.


The beautiful vase and bowl in the Simon Pearce Echo Lake Collection from Simon Pearce are just stunning! The master glassblower wraps fine strands of glass around each piece, offering brilliant reflection.


It's the time of year for apples!  Stonewall Kitchen Apple Cider Jam makes a fabulous autumn hostess gift.  Our Apple cookbook offers a variety of recipes for your fresh apples.


Our seasonal tree is decorated for autumn, with beautiful autumn leaves, big gourds, and bottle brush squirrels. 


This stylish bowl is embossed with  leaves, acorns, and gourds. We added a deep green pumpkin and an autumn wreath inside the bowl to create a neutral and natural autumn look.


It's time for all things pumpkin!  We have a wonderful pumpkin cookbook, and lots of decorative pumpkins to choose from in all shapes, sizes, and color.s


Beautiful gray marble dinnerware by Simon Pearce looks striking when paired with the modern color combination of gray and brown.  The rattan mat adds stylish texture to the place setting.


The gang's all here! These new dog doorstops look so real! Great to set by a door or even by the fireplace or on a chair.


Whatever your culinary creation, serve it on Mariposa to add effortless style!


Exceptional quality white French porcelain by Pillivuyt.


The soft neutral gray of these decorative jugs is beautifully paired with sprigs of plums. 


What a menagerie!  We have expanded our selection of cuddly, lovable stuffed animals!
