Let’s face the facts, the most exciting things in life revolve around eating.
So when the warm weather hits we’re ready to run outside with all of our favorite tableware and get our charcuterie on, probably with an insane shopping-spree to pick up far too many marcona almonds and cheese from Formaggio.
But when we start dreaming about these feasts, we’re normally dining with just a couple of friends, often to find the internet is a general wasteland for small dining tablescapes. Instead, Pinterest boards are mostly focused on large-scale parties or rustic weddings that engulf the outdoor eatery landscape.
With the Fourth right around the corner, we thought what better than to give you some looks for more intimate gatherings to work off of and play with. Plus, some exciting new tabletop additions on our end like Pittsburgh glassware Penn & Fairmount, Boston’s-own Myrth Ceramics, and new Farmhouse Pottery from Vermont (where we’re taking a work retreat this weekend).
Let’s dig in

1. Berries and Citrus
A fruit bowl for summer? Grounding-breaking … we know. But they’re too classic to pass up – especially when they’re dressed up in the hand-thrown ceramics by Farmhouse Pottery.
2. Vibrant Glassware
Our new Penn & Fairmount glassware is completely made by hand, artist Jason Forck and his team have designed these incredible silhouettes with tons of geometry and straight angles (which is always a challenge with glass).
3. Tabletop Layering
Nothing layers better than Myrth dinnerware (currently in-store only) and Walter G table linens, as the pieces in both collections, are made to have complementary hues.
4. Mood Lighting
When the night gets darker an outdoor lamp is a must, no hassle of lighting candles, plus they’re portable and durable. We’re currently loving the Mooon! Lamp by Fermob.
5. The Bold Blanket
We’re always looking for a summer blanket that’s made both sustainably and artistically. That’s where the designs of Blacksaw come in – their 100% baby alpaca wool is buttery soft and ethically sourced.
