Behind the Scenes: Our Summer Registry Story
Posted by Shira Savada
Now that the summer issue is out, I can finally post the behind the scenes photos from our registry story. I've been waiting to share them with you since February. Hope you like them! And don't forget to check out our online registry center for even more great ideas!
1 Here is a portion of a table of floral patterned plates.
2 We went for the gold! These are the "hungry bowls" from Clio-Home. We loved the super glossy interiors.
3 Here's a portion of the metallic dinnerware we had on hand.
4 This is the "gold aves" pattern from Royal Crown Derby. It's actually trimmed in 22K gold.
5 This is one of my favorites. I think it has a bit of a magical feeling to it. It's the "feux d'or" by royal limoges, which is available at Michael C. Fina.
6 This Pickard design by Kelly Wearstler reminds me of falling confetti. It made me want to celebrate.
7 Some Mikasa Color Studio plates in orange, navy, blue, brown, and grey. We loved the geometric pattern.
8 The smaller pattern is the new "black diamond" pattern from Royal Limoges. And the larger stripe is the "stripes" plate from Jonathan Adler.
9 So many good colors on one plate! Well two, actually.
The larger, striped one is by Missoni and it's called "tropical". The smaller one in the middle is called "provo prima" and it's by Richard Ginori.
10 These are by Legle. The company offers so many colors, it's amazing!
11 This is the "kyoto" by L'Objet dessert plate. We liked its interesting shape.
12 Here are some of our whites and patternless plates.
13 On registry stories we usually have enough boxes to build a fort if we wanted to. Here they are all tucked under the tables.
14 Here's a plate by Match. It's pewter rim adds a really nice weight to the plate and an interesting take on the metallic border.
15 This is Callie, who helped us pull this story together. She has great taste and brought a lot of great ideas to this registry piece. When she's not working with us, she's running her interior design business, called Scout Designs.
16 That's Callie again on the right, arranging the shot. And our awesome intern Stephanie helping her. We used lucite cubes under some of the plates to give some dimension to the shot.
