I'm in love with this pretty coral and pink floral pattern on these Pioneer Woman pasta bowls! So bright and colorful. they're perfect for Spaghetti and Meatballs at an Italian-themed dinner party. They're also microwave and dishwasher safe for easy clean-up.
Every Southern hostess needs a pretty cake stand to showcase their special desserts. This cake stand with an acacia wood base and simple glass dome is elegant and sophisticated so that the dessert takes a very deserving center stage.
Perfect for casual backyard picnics, this beverage dispenser has a durable stainless steel spigot. Tall and skinny, one dispenser holds 2-1/2 quarts, so for larger parties you might want a couple — one for Southern sweet tea and one for hand-squeezed lemonade.
My Mama's cut-glass punch bowl filled with lime sherbet punch was always the center piece at family baby and wedding showers. I'm not even sure if anyone uses punch bowls over the Mason-Dixon line, but I love the modern feel of this beautiful punch bowl. Even if you're not a punch fan, this set would be a lovely for serving fresh lemonade at Summer parties.
This pretty gold caddy looks lovely on a luncheon buffet or in a powder room filled with disposable guest towels. The decorative ivory paper towels with gold border (12x17 inches unfolded & 8.5x4 inches folded) are sold separately.
You may notice a theme emerging here — more rose gold! The rose gold finish is what makes this simple flatware design so very elegant. Just iImagine it paired with white, or even slate, dinnerware and flickering candles. So pretty!
In my opinion, you can never have too many trays, especially ones like this lovely round rattan tray. Use it as a serving tray or use it to decorate a table by adding a stack of books with a small vase or candle on top.
Not only is this ice bucket lovely, it's functional, too.The double-walled stainless steel bucket is Insulated to keep ice or beverages cold and keep the outside free of condensation. And it's my favorite rose gold!
