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!

Life is a Picnic


We're taking dining into the outdoors this summer with brand new melamine dinnerware from Relish. Made to look just like pottery, but without the breakable factor, Relish is picnic perfection! We grabbed our favorite pieces to mix and match, plus a decked out cheese board, and headed outside.

Relish Melamine Dinnerware



What is melamine exactly? Glad you asked! It's a resin based plastic, which makes it extremely durable and almost shatterproof. While we don't recommend putting it in the microwave or oven, it's perfectly safe in the dishwasher. Our favorite color in this line is the white. We simply couldn't choose between the bead or scallop edge, so why not mix it together? 



Each plate and dish in Relish is molded from real pottery to get the look just right. The brand's pottery line Cabell's Designs was featured this past January in beautiful colors and styles, too!


Don't forget about serving pieces, too. With 2 platters and 2 large bowls, there's a shape and size for just about any dish you have planned.




A picnic wouldn't be complete without a cheese board! We kept it simple with just two cheeses, a little fruit, and fresh baked bread, of course.



The summer has just begun, and we already feel inspired by the constant sunshine and outdoor adventures. Share photos with us of all your dining adventure this season on social media. We'd love to see!
