Behind the Scenes: The Ideal Setting
Posted by Shira Savada
Our spring registry story was all about color, and there we so many amazing pieces, it was hard not to want to reconfigure my kitchen to accommodate a variety of palettes. Here, are a few snapshots I took on set.
1 I loved this blue cutlery from Alessi. That baby spoon? Totally my favorite.
2 A stunning hand-blown glass decanter by Joe Cariati.
3 This stitched detail on the rim of the Donna Hay for Royal Doulton plates caught my eye.
4 You can really see the whimsical offset placement on these DVF pieces.
5 I'd definitely eat breakfast at this table!
6 I thought the shape of this Astier de Villate plate was remarkable.
7 Marco Mocellin from Parmacotto was so knowledgable about cured meat..It's so reassuring to work with someone so passionate about the quality of their product.
8 Our staff snacked on cured meat for days!
9 The red table in the beginning stages of being set.
10 Naomi used a classic trick to form this centerpiece. Scotch tape grids to give you more control over where each flower goes.
11 How pretty are the colors on this rose?
12 And the intricate work on this plate?
13 The camera was pretty high up to capture all of the plates we'd set out.
14 One of Gleena's plates, that you can get customized. How about adding your new monogram?
15 This plate reminded me of lava.
16 We picked up a marshmallow cake from Billy's Bakery to use in our shot. Afterwards, we enjoyed the sweet delicious creation.
What's your tableware look like? Are you registering for things in a range of colors, or sticking to a neutral or white world?
