Happiest Harvest

October's arrival means that fall is finally in the air! The weather is cooling down but our hearts are feeling warm. This year, we're bringing you two tablescapes to fall in love with-- one featuring Etta B Pottery and another featuring Casafina Dinnerware. Whether your style leans more rustic or traditional, you can accomplish a lot with pretty pottery and neutral pumpkins! 

Our Fall Table with Etta B Pottery

This table pulls in light green heirloom pumpkins, plus a classic white pumpkin. If you're looking for a reason to visit your local pumpkin patch, now's your chance, friends. We choose smaller sizes so that we could fit as many as possible on the round table.

Sprigs of baby eucalyptus and wheat, tied simply with twine, make a rustic place card that anyone can make.

This setting features a mix of Charming White, Peaceful Waters, and a seasonal pumpkin plate. You know we can't pass up a mix-match pottery opportunity! Soften the look with a natural wood root charger and linen napkins.

Think outside of the box when it comes to vases. Pop some simple greenery and hydrangeas in an Etta B Pottery pitcher for a look that ties together the entire table.

Mix in natural textures like burlap and corn husk pumpkins to add depth. These corn husk pumpkins come in a set of 6 and are also great for filling coffee table bowls!

This little hootie dish was just entirely too cute to pass up! You can mix and match within your fall table by swapping out decorative salad plates. Just like us, you may have a hard time picking a favorite!

Serve up Fall

Don't forget the desserts-- we never do! Etta B Pottery's selection this year of seasonal servingware is just begging for pumpkin bread, oatmeal cookies, and maple cupcakes.

Our Fall Table with Casafina

Our second table repurposed some of the same white pumpkins, but with some more traditional dinnerware. We let the flowers and greenery make their way across the entire table, plus a generous stack of pumpkins.

What's that, another mix and match place setting? We're not ashamed! This place setting features Majorca (the ruffled edge) mixed with Taormina. The subtle tones and textures go incredibly well together to create a more upscale look without looking stuffy.

A large vine pumpkin served as our centerpiece this time, with florals and natural pumpkins supporting the show.

A torn paper edge and a white little pumpkin create an elegant place card. Recruit a friend with the best handwriting and put them to work on the names!

Once we picked out the dinnerware, it need a little...more, you know? These gold painted wine glasses did just the trick.

Instead of burlap accents, this table got a touch of painted terracotta. Still an earthy material, but painted a sage green, these pumpkins were some of our favorites on the table.

Feeling inspired yet? We hope you fill you table this season with pretty pottery, but more importantly, that it's surrounded by those you love. Happy Harvest!

Drumroll, please! You've all been waiting and you've all heard the rumors. Well, we're here to finally announce our big news! We will be uprooting our Collierville store and sowing new seeds at Thornwood in Germantown, opening spring 2019. Watch the video to see where our story began, why we're moving, and where Thornwood is located.

With over triple the space of our current location, we will be able to focus on specific services such as bridal registries, carry a larger selection of products, and add new product lines. We are so excited to be centrally located in the Greater Memphis area and branch out to new customers. 

Our new location will be at Thornwood, a new lifestyle center, at the corner of Germantown Parkway & Neshoba Road.

New Space, New Brand

We are also excited to announce that we've cultivated a new logo and brand look to take with us into the new space. You'll see new colors, packaging, and new signage when the new store opens.

We can't wait to see where 2019 takes us, but in the meantime, we have plenty of work to do here in Collierville in 2018! You'll see a peek here and there of our progress, so follow along as we take root.
