One of my favorite settings in Inspired Gatherings was this long table in a barn in the middle of a vineyard. Beyond inspiring- and beyond beautiful.
And a secret… when planning this table- I wasn’t quite sure exactly what the flowers would look like ahead of time. I loaded up everything in the car and decided that I would see what inspired me while shopping the flower market that morning. So I had several linen and stemware options on hand that would work no matter what flowers and colors I found.
Though I did plan ahead on the other table setting elements like the dishes- and I brought one of my always on repeat absolute favorites for the tables.
Lace Detailed Beauties
These dishes are called ‘Finezza’ by Arte Italica. They are the most exquisite dishes I have found. Covered in lace details and delicate curves- they are always on repeat over here. I love them stacked up in layers – the chargers, dinner plates, salad plates and bread plates.
But even on their own with just one layer- they have such a beautiful presence.
In this setting, I paired the Finezza dishes with vintage wood flatware, amber stemware and another of my favorites from Arte Italica- Gold Vetro chargers.
The details in every piece that Arte Italica makes is absolutely breathtaking. I fell in love with them several years ago and have been adding to my collection ever since. You might also recognize the Merletto dishes- which are another favorite that I use again and again.
I am so excited to continue the celebration for my new book with Arte Italica this week- and they are giving away a set of 4 Finezza Chargers to a French Country Cottage reader.
