When I was a young and eager bride to be zipping around the housewares department in Macy’s Herald Square tackling our wedding registry, it never dawned on me that we would entertain as much as we do. Naturally, I was preoccupied with my dress and my hair more than anything else so the idea of hosting a holiday dinner seemed like a foreign concept. I can’t believe I’m going to admit this but….I should’ve listened to my mother. Yes, I said it! She was right. You can never have enough trays, platters and bowls. I learned the hard way over the years when holiday after holiday, I would come up short and my coffee table would look like an awkward potpourri of mismatched items. So, when Mariposa reached out to me to let me know about their String of Pearls Celebration, I was all ears. The idea of hosting a dinner with functional and elegant pieces has me very excited for the holidays! Of course, I had to test out my new collection so the other weekend, I decided it would be fun to have a little “cocktail party” for the kids complete with a fruit platter, some cheese and nuts, and some mini cupcakes and M&M’s accompanied by some sparkling cider….and wine for me!
I think these would make the perfect gift, especially with the holidays right around the corner. Mariposa is currently running a promotion for their String of Pearls Celebration:
