Behind the Scenes: Summer Registry Story
Posted by Shira Savada
There are so many great things out there to put on your registry, particularly if you like entertaining. So when it came to shooting our summer registry story, we tried to gather a nice assortment of items for any social gathering -- big, small, casual, formal, inside, or outside. Naturally, we had some extras, and I tried to snap shots of everything!
1 WMF's seven-piece bar set has a beautiful matte finish (allmodern.com).
2 We loved the cocktail shaker and seven-piece barware set from the Martha Stewart Collection at Macy's.
3 Gorham's "That's Entertainment" five-piece barware set would be a wonderful gift for the groomsmen (giftcollector.com).
4 "Coro" highballs have four different-color green bottoms and a nice simple shape. (lekkerhome.com)
5 Gorgeous glass and crystal vases are wonderful to add to your registry. You're sure to be getting flowers from your husband-to-be!
6 Add drama to your table with these black-and-white side plates from the Conran Shop (conranusa.com).
7 A trio of Alessi pieces: teapot, creamer, and sugar jar (alessi.com).
8 Jonathan Adler's enamel-handled serving set.
9 Two patterns of Mikasa dinnerware: "Simplicity Gold" and "Microstripe."
10 An aerial shot of the Georg Jensen candelabras (georgjensen.com).
11 We loved the masculinity of these nine-inch candlesticks by Thomas O'Brien for Reed & Barton (reedandbarton.com).
12 When you peer down into a Varga "Simplicity" water glass, it looks like a little flower (graciousstyle.com).
13 This green vase was so pretty and fresh (gretelhome.com).
14 An oval-shaped platter like this one from Match Pewter would be great for serving so many things (match1995.com).
15 I adored the rippled edge of this Villeroy & Boch bowl. It would be great to fill with nuts or olives during a cocktail party.
16 Michael C. Fina's set of eight martini glasses.
17 These monogrammed DuraClear tumblers from Williams-Sonoma won't ever break, which means you can bring them outside for a barbecue without worrying.
18 Melamine plates from West Elm and Jonathan Adler mix and match so well!
19 Who doesn't love to munch? The "Chancellor" snack bowl from Pottery Barn is ideal for your coffee-table treats.
20 These wood veneer placemats and coasters from Chilewich would be great for setting your table, whether it's inside or out! They come in three tones.
21 Poketo makes this set of cute and graphic melamine plates called "The Middletons" (poketo.com).
22 Here, the "Chat" plates from the MoMA store. At one point in the day, I held the middle-sized one above my head and asked a coworker if she could guess what I was thinking. I guess they double as props.
23 These are Baccarat's "Mille Nuits" flutes in two lovely colors.
24 Steuben's "Angles" crystal -- a lovely stemmed flute and a tumbler.
25 Dansk's "Vivianna" cheese board has a little egg-shaped indentation for handle of the knife to rest in.
