I truly enjoy collecting dishes. I think it’s so fun to mix and match different colors, patterns, textures, shapes and sizes. You never know what mood or occasion will arise, and it’s nice to be able to switch things up seasonally. I dream of the day I can have a walk in pantry just for all of my dishes and platters…
Rattan Glasses + Pitchers
Rattan pieces are ideal for spring or summer. I’ve actually been using my rattan glasses as a simple water cup everyday because I like the way they look out on my desk or nightstand. I feel like it motivates me to drink more water! They look beautiful displayed in a glass cabinet, on a dinner table, or even on the counter filled with flowers.
Gold Rimmed Teacups + Bowls + Plates
Dauville gold rimmed dinnerware is so unique and can be used for special occasions or everyday. I use their gold rimmed teacups (hand wash only) when I drink tea, their gold rimmed bowls for fun brunches (fruit looks stunning in them), and their cake plate for birthdays. These ones from H&M home are a great dupe!
Blue + White Spongeware Dishes
Tory Burch makes the most iconic blue + white dishes. You may remember this spring tablescape I did with all of her pieces. I’m dying to get my hands on these smoke ring patterned plates to mix and match with the ones I currently have. The pitcher from this collection is a MUST HAVE for lemonade in the summer and flowers throughout the year.
Everyday White Plates + Bowls
My classic white plates and bowls come from Hudson Grace at the Brentwood Country Mart. They’re made in Italy and hand glazed. They are the “organic” style so they’re slightly imperfect which I love. They feel really luxe and special, but are casual enough to use everyday. They are microwave safe, but I don’t recommend microwaving them for too long as they do heat up. Many of you have asked where my classic white mug is from – and it’s from the same collection.
Everyday Glass Cups
I have drinking glasses from Hudson Grace, but they’re pricy. I found these ones from Crate + Barrel that are basically identical and more affordable. Growing up, we had these glass tumblers which I’d buy in a heartbeat if I had the cabinet space!
These hand blown glasses can be used for water and wine, aren’t they elegant? These ones are super similar and 1/4 of the price! You can’t go wrong with a simple wine glass like this… If I’m being completely honest, I truly hate those wine glasses with a flat base. I don’t know why, I just find them tacky and way too modern. I also don’t like stemless glasses, again this is just personal preference. For parties, I order bulk sets of these wine glasses so that guests can drink out of a nice glass, but I also don’t have to worry if it breaks.
Martini + Champagne Glasses
One of the most frequently asked questions I get on IG is; Where do you get your martini coupes? They are available here! They’d also make fabulous dessert dishes if you’re having a dinner party!
Italian Splatterware (Outdoor Friendly)
Speckled Ceramic Plates + Bowls
For my cookbook shoot, we used a ton of Humble Ceramics plates + bowls. They’re expensive, but so worth it. Helena and Alicia recently shared these Sarah Kersten bowls that have a similar vibe and are just to die for!
