Hand-Tatted Summertime Card Set
First thing’s first…the invites! If you plan on hosting a summer soiree, you’ll need to let guests know ahead of time so they can save the date. This set of 6 hand-tatted cards will set the tone for the day, as each one is decorated with original artwork inspired by the sea and accented with hand-tatted designs created from cotton thread that is looped and knotted.
Murano-Style Confetti Champagne Glasses
These colorful champagne glasses are hand-blown in Naples, Italy according to the traditions and techniques of Murano glass making. The unique, confetti-like pattern on each glass is created by rolling the molten glass in colorful glass chips before skillfully hand-blowing it into its final form. This set of 6 champagne glasses is perfect for bringing an artisanal touch to the table, and guests will enjoy being able to choose their favorite color!
Polish Pottery Tidal Wave Fish Platter
This Polish pottery platter is perfect for serving hors d’oeuvres. Artisans in Poland shape each one of their native clay and then use carved sponges and fine brushwork to hand-paint it with delightful sea life motifs. The unique fish shape of this platter brings a nautical touch to any tablespread!
Italian Ceramic Elephant Salt & Pepper Shakers
Guests will be delighted to find this adorable pair of elephants as they reach for the salt or pepper! Each one is shaped from stoneware clay and adorned with blooming floral designs by artisans in a third-generation family workshop in the Vicenza area of Italy.
Hand-Painted Floral Wine Glasses
When the meal has been served and it’s time to linger over sweets and a good red, guests will love sipping from our hand-painted floral wine glasses. Each one is an individual work of art painted by Kathleen of Michigan. Similar to our champagne glasses, guests can choose their favorite color or flower to sip from!
