Winter Wonder: A seasonal swoon of primo patterns and shimmering shades comes full circle around this dazzling tablescape.
We don't know who still needs to hear this, but staying in > going out during the season of splendor, especially with the best of tabletop delivered straight to your door. However, this doesn't mean you must rest on your fashionable laurels. Get cozy around a table of your Winter wonderland and embrace the dark magic of this glamorous black and white delight.
We like the idea of taking advantage of the darker hours to invite others to retreat or disco down to a beautiful tablescape that is as intriguing as it is tempting. This enchanting mix of exquisite ceramic and porcelain craftsmanship, precious metals, and glistening glassware set around the round table beckons an air of grandeur and lively conversation that will last well into the wee early morning hours. Santa baby, indeed.
GILTY PLEASURES | HAWTHORNE ONYX
The intention behind this tablescape began with the idea of a lavish gathering for friends that held space for the rich heritage of the moment while crushing on the cusp of a contemporary aesthetic. While that may be a mouthful, we are certain it's equally a feast for the eyes thanks to a prized Caskata pattern.
The Hawthorne Onyx blends a dramatic mix of muted semi-matte gold and platinum with a lustrous black glaze on its geometric design. Designed to mimic the many bands of the finest filigree jewelry, the Onyx Collection is a premium Insignia C “American Masters' offering, defined by its bold character, craftsmanship, and design, created using precious metals on creamy white bone china.
The luminous glow of gold and white along with the nuances of various smoky elements casts a gorgeous glow. We like to think of it as the perfect tabletop adornment for the host with discriminating good taste.
TRADIZIONE, YOUR WAY
The wintry black and white elegance of the instantly recognizable Albus Collection creates a refined mise en place ready to impress every guest with the beauty of Italian craftsmanship. This artful place setting also serves a greater purpose by highlighting savory courses and brightening sumptuous culinary offerings. The iconic white porcelain emanates a vibrant energy–perfectly matching the dashing spirit of the holiday season.
And just like Ginori 1735, we love any twist on tradition. The alluring addition of Smoke Glassware and Smoke Lucite Stemware casts an irresistible charm to the table that is far from stuffy. Channel the adept savoir-faire of this sophisticated table and continue to blur the lines by queuing up your holiday playlist accordingly!
Go glam or go home. We know. It's so Texas of us. But hey, this tablescape dazzles with its own point of view, as should you. Dress to impress with a daring cocktail of style, design, and heritage. Whether you go glam in a LaPointe ensemble (quite literally on point) or a classic Cotswold pattern from The Avenue, the purpose of this party is to be able to dive deep into your layers but still have fun while doing it. That means all of the accessories, dolls. Dip into the latest nail shape or add a little LeLetNY to your ponytail, but do shake a tail feather all the same.

DECKING THE HALLS
We hope our holiday tablescapes satiate your appetite for beauty with all of the bounty and abundance this tender season offers. And if you can guess by now, our M.O. for playing with our plates is pretty simple: The non-essentials are non-negotiable. So whether you are sharing your first family holiday, celebrating soiree style with friends, or establishing your own traditions, hostesses in the know understand these three essentials when it comes to party planning:
Fine china is a beautiful conversation starter: A well-set table encourages an entertaining, no-pressure atmosphere so each guest has a chance to pause and be social.
Nothing is too precious: Rentals allow you to find (or play) your aesthetic by bringing in a spontaneous selection of heirloom patterns and trending collections without having to commit to a purchase.
Time is precious: Book your luxury rentals early to ease your mind (and ensure your favorite patterns) and save time by letting us take care of delivery, pickup, and cleaning the dirty dishes. Voila!
