Spring Entertaining Essentials

Spring EntertainingThe weather may be unpredictable, bringing sunshine and warmth one day while snow and chilly winds the next, but the first elusive sighting of asparagus in the market has me thinking of outdoor get togethers! To get ready, I’ve pulled together the essentials for a perfect and effortless setting. It’s colorful, simple, organic, and oh so unique, exactly what I’d dream of setting out for guests on sunnier days ahead. {image above}

Play with Shapes

Think beyond just round plates, different shapes like the square 1.Cher Blanc set by Noritake, they are still classic, yet unique

For more of a luxury setting, the beautiful mosaic pattern on these 2.Hermes square plates will be the talk of dinner.

Basic White

The 3.Ecume Collection is elegant yet modern, contemporary yet poetic, making it a simple and versatile to collection fit for any type of entertaining.

Use the beauty of nature with garden inspired shapes, textures, and details. 4.Maison Versailles Mix and Match Collection.

Mixing Patterns, Prints and Finishes

Combine a pattern with a solid, and stick with the same color palette when it comes to a distinct pattern. Pick a bold, deep colored print and layer with an equally bold but solid colored set and a light print in the same colored family like the 1.Gb Medici Cocktail plate, 2.Malachite set and the 3.Monaco Dinnerware set.

Mix feminine patterns like the 4.Field of Flowers Dahlia party plate with a masculine Solid colored Geometric design like the 5.Castle Peak Slate plate

Spring Essentials...Serving Ware

Glassware

Whether it’s an unexpected friend stopping by for a drink or a casual barbecue, an everyday tumbler should always be on hand. Make it fun yet classic with fun shapes and vibrant colors like the 2.Ginette set or these from the 3.Padma Collection.

The same goes for wine glasses, stemless are the way to go like the 1.Effervesce Stemless Wine Glass

The Champagne Coupe is a necessity at any celebration. The 4.BHLDN Rosy Cheeked Coupe is a simple, pretty rose-tinted, and elegant way to toast!

When it comes to serving pieces, keep them simple and organic, and it’s my preference but clear. This beautiful bubble pitcher would make any drink look lovelier. 1.Effervesce Pitcher

Utensils

Add an artistic edge with your flatware like 5.this Hammered set from World Market. Don’t forget to serve up your delicious food with a contrasting color, like the 6.Vika Sky Salad set.

Use trending fabrics like 4.Chambray Napkins, and mix up patterns, whether it be floral or fun prints. Layer neutral linens with different patterns, with similar color tones, for some added texture, remember they add an easy personal touch to any Spring dinner. 1.Villa Tablecloth 2. Heron Tablecloth 3.Heirloomed Linen Table Runner
