5-Piece Vintage Floral Pasta Bowl Set
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.
Cake Stand with Glass Dome
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.
Tall Mason Jar Drink Dispenser
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.
Punch Bowl Set
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.
