Juliska's Setting Designer

Even within one line of tableware there can be countless options:  multiple patterns, multiple colors, multiple pieces.  And that's not counting all the linen and drinkware options that can accompany a setting.  The pieces can all coordinate very well, but how do you go about seeing what pairings you like without ordering everything and praying for the best?

Juliska has devised the perfect solution.  The new app on their website allows you to mix and match pieces from each of their lines and virtually create your own table settings online.  You can even add in glassware and utensils to complete the look.

Check out a few of our favorite settings below....

Now Carrying Aden + Anais

If you yourself have welcomed a little one into the world recently, or if you have a friend who has, you have probably heard of Aden + Anais.  If not, let us have the pleasure of introducing you.....

Aden + Anais designs swaddles, sleep sacks and other accessories that are made out of muslin.  Muslin is a delicate, yet durable fabric that has just a bit of stretch.  It is ideal for swaddling newborns because it keeps them feeling secure without being too restrictive.  It provides comfort and warmth without letting the baby overheat.

Each piece from the Aden + Anais line is not only functional, but fashionable as well.  We're a little partial to a few of the designs ourselves and we have no doubt you will quickly find a few favorites of your own.

Below is a quick overview of some of the company's unique products that are available at The Crystal Plate ~

Swaddling is ideal for newborns because it mimics the cozy and secure environment of the 
womb.  Our favorite thing about these beautiful pieces is that they could double 
as a pashmina or scarf when not being enjoyed by your little one.

The swaddles come in packs of four, with each swaddle
featuring a different pattern.

We love the gorgeous pink and gray pattern on
this particular swaddle.

Sleep Sacks
Endorsed by the Foundation for Sids, these sleep bags provide a peaceful and safe environment for your little one each night.  We carry two different designs of these 
bags:  one with a single layer of muslin and then a second with four layers of the fabric.

We're quite taken with this giraffe print, which would
be perfect for either a little boy or girl. 

Blue star and elephants....

and pink medallions and sweet bees

Burpy Bibs
These two in one items double as both a bib and a burp cloth.  Burpy bibs come
in packs of two and feature double sided prints on each one.

Come take a peek here at the store!  We have several patterns and sizes in each of these items.

Spotlight on Arte Italica

If you haven't had a chance yet to take a gander at our Arte Italica tableware you are surely missing out!  The Crystal Plate has featured the line for quite some time, but the company recently introduced a few new patterns that we are just itching to share.  We know you will love them as much as we do.

The beauty of these pieces lies in their easy elegance.  The different lines effortlessly blend together, allowing you to mix and match to keep things fresh and exciting.   You can also rest assured that were you to decide to add to your tableware collection at a later point that the new pieces would seamlessly fit into the collection you already own.

Below are just a few pieces that we offer here at the store...

The Bella Bianca pattern features these stunning
chargers that are as unique as they are

Another charger pattern...

Also in the Bella Bianca pattern are mugs and saucers
that showcase various patterns.  Pick one favorite look
or mix it up with a few different looks.

The popular Merletto pattern is offered in 
blue, white and chocolate.  The intricate lace pattern that adorns these
pieces makes it possible for them to be used as everyday
dinnerware and on special occasions.

The Amorini pattern is peppered with various 
colors of wild flowers.  Pinks, greens, and purples all 
make an appearance.

Rosone is the pattern most recently added
to our iventory.  The vibrant yet classic blue color
adds the perfect touch in our opinion.

On the left is the Tuscan pattern that combines the ceramic plate
with the company's signature pewter trim. The Splendore pattern on the right
is made from mouth blown glass swirled with white and
finished off with an iridescent glaze.

Similar to Splendore is the Tesoro pattern that features
the same pewter beaded rim but without the 
metallic glaze.  A twist on the classic!

Want to see more photos of these patterns?  Hop on over to Arte Italica's website to see more pieces and details. 

Or better yet come see them here in person!

A Sneak Peak

Hopefully you've already read the first part of our Sneak Peak mini-series from Wednesday.  If not, you can check it out here.   We have so many great items coming in that we wanted to share and they just won't fit all into one post.

Today we're showcases a few more Christmas pieces that will be making their way to our store here within the next few weeks.  They won't be up for grabs until October, but you can go ahead and be picking our your favorites.  But we're guessing you'll love each of them so much you won't be able to choose a favorite!

These adorable jingle bells come in both silver
and a beautiful copper color.  Use them to adorn your tree or
to jazz up your mantel or table centerpiece.

Wrap it pretty!  Usually ribbon is used as a finishing accent,
but these beautifully patterned styles can certainly hold their own.

This gorgeous garland is sure to lend a festive
touch to your home.  This particular style could be left
up and admired past Christmas and all throughout 
the winter months as well.

What better way to give your guests the ultimate
holiday greeting than to affix this stylish and festive reindeer
to your door?  He will also be coming in a red color as well.

Continuing the copper trend, we will be selling these
beautiful tree ornaments.

And to complement the above trees we also ordered
these start ornaments.  The detailing is absolutely beautiful.

Miniature pines wrapped up in burlap!  Buy one or
buy a few to cluster together.

A slightly similar feel can be achieved with these
multi-sized topiaries.  You can't quite see it in the picture,
but each topiary is topped with a bit of snow.

This last feature isn't exactly a Christmas item, but is something
that can absolutely be given as a Christmas gift.  We have carried these Wild Olive Italian
Pottery pieces for quite a while and are so excited
about this new greige (gray/beige) color that is 
being rolled out.

Make sure to keep all of these items in mind as the holiday season draws near!!
