La Dolce Vita


I think I'll take a trip this weekend... ok so it may only be in my head:) I am definitely going to channel the Amalfi Coast with these beautiful items I received for a new tablescape from Artemis Italia.



These gorgeous ceramic dishes come all the way from the Amalfi Coast of Italy. Handcrafted and made by artisans whose technique and craftsmanship has been passed down through generations. Each piece is a work of art! This design has all the flair of classic Italian style, but with natural colors it goes with everything. The classic City Collection is perfect for a candlelight dinner and equally enjoyable for an al fresco lunch or breakfast!

Shop the collection here.









Add an unexpected touch! This Sabre flatware is rustic but elegant. A classic style with just a touch of shine it is so stylish with a grey finish.









I love using a menu card and placecards when I have guests. It's like adding jewelry to your outfit. It's all in the details! The finishing touch for your table! Even if you hand write the card yourself, it adds a special touch and creativity to the table. These Woodland Mushroom menus from Mr. P's Placecards were perfect for the mood and ideal for my menu!


I'm taking a cue from the natural tones of the ceramics and going to plan something Tuscan inspired for Dinner.






I just couldn't wait to set the table. I had a napkin in mind that didn't arrive yet, but decided I had an idea. I love the weight, shape and design of these placemats from Dascoli so much I used them as napkins.

I'm not sorry about it all, Won't be the last time I do that!






These brushed gold napkin ringsfrom Kim Seybert add a bit of glam but have a rustic edge as well. A perfect addition to the rustic sophisticated & chic tablescape






After making thousands of napkins over the years at the many events I planned, I finally coerced Tara (if you know you know) to help me create a collection of our favorites over the years to offer you at home.


Here's a sneak peak of one of the styles in we planned for spring& summer. MANGIA was from one of our favorites parties ever! This napkin was used at a chocolate and gelato bar styled after a fabulous eatery in Milan. You can buy it here. Stay tuned for the whole collection of custom napkins we will be offering!





While Italy was on my mind I had a double treat when I received a delicious gift from my friend's at Confetti Milano.


These flavored almonds have been a custom in Italy for years for all kinds of celebrations and a favored sweet treat.​ How perfect are these pouches with my tablescape?! I wanted to share these with you as they are a nice additional touch to your table when you have guests, or save them for a sweet surprise and bring out for dessert.




Confetti Milano has so many flavors and different options for packaging. The finest ingredients and delicately flavored white chocolate make these candies unbelievably soft and tasty; a luscious teeth-friendly dessert suitable for everyone. Made only with the best quality and biggest Italian almonds and just a thin sugar layer, they are available in a selection of the incredible Italian sweet flavours. While this style was just perfect for my table they offer so many styles, flavors and can customize anything. Contact them! Giulia, is not only the sweetest to plan with but will creatively make your treats stylish and personal for any occasion. Wouldn't these be perfect for an Easter table?





If you do plan to go out, please stay safe!

I found a cute and quirky little something that's perfect if you plan to leave the house and visit your favorite Italian eatery.

How fun are these masks from Amy Atelier?
