Shopping, I've always thought, is all in the details. It's that mix of materials and textures, colors and patterns that when combined in a unique or unusual way create a collection all your own. These days, most us just don't have the spare cash to spend on lavish gifts for ourselves or even for the people important in our lives. But that's not going to stop us from shopping, is it? People are are still having birthdays, aren't they? They're still getting married, celebrating anniversaries, throwing cocktail parties, and moving into new houses(!), right? And when it comes to ourselves, we all still need a little retail therapy every and now then, don't we? I know I do! Sure, we may not be spending as much, but that doesn't mean we still can't give (to ourselves and to others) beautiful, one-of-a-kind items we'll treasure for generations. That's why I'm so thrilled to announce our newest offering, Eddie Ross at Etsy! Every piece in the collection I selected, washed, ironed, and polished by hand. Every piece carries with it detailed descriptions full of ideas. Every piece I would most certainly use in my own home. And every piece is $100 and under. Here on this sideboard, everything I think is so fresh and elegant.
The laced rim milk glass cake plate can be taken down and used for serving cupcakes, tea sandwiches, or any other hors d'oeuvre. The pressed glass spooners are perfect for holding silverware at a buffet or filled with flowers on a bedside table. The pair of double-arm candlesticks can go from winter to spring, summer to fall. They're equally beautiful at a spring luncheon for twelve or an intimate candlelit dinner for two. And the swirl vase would be gorgeous all year long. Swap out the tulips for holly, the green candles for red, and the table is dressed for holiday! In fact, if this were the sideboard to an elegant spring supper, perhaps the table might look something like this.
At mealtimes, everyone eats with their eyes, wouldn't you say? And who wouldn't want to be served a dessert as elegant as this? Even though the embroidered butterfly napkins are traditionally for cocktail hour, they make for beautiful plate liners as well, topped with this set of eight bullseye crystal footed bowls. And that's what we're proud to offer with every item in the collection—clever, innovative ideas on how to mix in vintage pieces with what you already own, effortlessly and beautifully. That's what modern entertaining is about to me, and that's what we're sharing with you. Speaking of entertaining, could your bar use a chic pick-me-up of metallic swirl highballs and a faux tortoise shell ice bucket? I'm already dreaming of mojitos and mango margaritas by the pool...
And so, when next you're looking for something unique, beautiful, and affordable for the table in your home, or those of the people important in your life, consider coming to the very same place that has inspired and delighted you all along!
P.S. We'll be updating the store on Wednesdays, everyone!
