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

One of the popular new color schemes this year is gray and brown.  Here we paired a beautiful gray table runner and gray marble dinnerware form Simon Pearce with rattan and wood accessories.  Beautiful!  Amidst these warm and inviting neutrals, the food becomes the star!

Valentine's Day will soon be here! We have some fun and fancy extras for your table, including cocktails napkins, heart-shaped plates (perfect for dessert!), heart napkin weights (which double as table decor), heart-shaped glass pieces, and heart candle holders. 

Spring flowers are starting to arrive! Baskets of lilacs and magnolias greet you as you walk in the store.  It might still be winter, but colorful florals can add much-needed brightness to the winter.

St. Patrick's Day is around the corner, too! Add a few green accents to your table for some fun!

Another serene place setting featuring neutrals and grays.  This is the simple yet stylish Puro dinnerware from Juliska.  Notice how the blue napkin brings a pop of color. 

Pineapples! You know we love pineapples.  Mariposa has a wonderful selection of pineapple serving accessories to make your entertaining welcoming!
