Classic Holiday Tablescape

We are thrilled to share our collaboration with Kathleen Barnes from CarrieBradshawLied.com. A reference to the Sex and The City's main character, played by Sarah Jessica Parker whose career mimicked hers when she lost her dream job and found the world to be more challenging than she imagined.

Our first introduction to her blog was from a dear friend. We instantly admired her aesthetic and were pleased to learn she had registered with Annieglass for her wedding!

Kathleen is a Southern gal who was raised in Mississippi. Her first job out of school was at Southern Living magazine, our favorite and one of the first to recognize and feature Annieglass so beautifully. She lived in Southern California and then to San Francisco. Being a true Annieglass fan she drove down the coast to Watsonville to visit our factory and store. Since leaving California she has settled down in Athens, Georgia.

She shares attainable luxury for fashion and home - which goes hand in hand with Annieglass. Her classic holiday tablescape brings elegance yet warmth and coziness to the table. Her website and Instagram are fabulous for finding realistic inspiration and we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

We hope you enjoy our repost of her Classic Holiday Table post.

If you’ve been around here for a little while, you know my longtime love of Annieglass dinnerware and serving pieces.  When we were getting married in 2012, I registered for the Roman Antique Salad Plate and the Ruffle Buffet Plate to compliment the china pattern we had chosen.  I vividly remember each time I was gifted one of those pieces because I was so excited!

Cut to eight years later, and I’ve used my Annieglass collection far more than any other china or serving pieces.  Why is that?  Well not only are they beautiful, but they are dishwasher safe, chip resistant, display beautifully and I find them to serve multiple purposes.  This wine cooler can double as a centerpiece or fruit bowl.  This wine coaster can also be used as a dip bowl.  These buffet plates can also be used as platters for appetizers.  I’m always mixing them around and finding new ways to use them.

The majority of my collection is in platinum, but I also have a few gold trimmed pieces and they are equally stunning.  Annieglass has a wide array of different designs and collections, but my favorite have always been the Roman Antique, Edgey and Ruffle.

Annieglass has been around for over 30 years, and I have truly loved expanding my collection.  Christian knows it’s a fool-proof gift for me, and I have no doubts I will continue to collect and treasure these pieces in the decades ahead.  They are beautiful, durable, dishwasher safe (so fabulous it’s worth mentioning twice!!) and chic.  I am a forever fan!

If you’re new to the brand, I would encourage you to consider adding a piece to your Christmas wish list.  Seriously – I know you’ll love it.  Thank you so much for reading! XO –
