Something Old, Something New
With Autumn Bridal Season almost upon us, a glamorous season boasting such brides as Jackie Kennedy and Amal Clooney, we are delighted to partner with purveyor of luxury china and crystal, Sasha Nicholas, to set the Bridal Luncheon Tablescape of our dreams.
For brides looking for the loveliest in registry options, Sasha Nicholas carries the most historically iconic china patterns of our time, from Herend to Burleigh, pictured here in Asiatic Pheasant. Additional offerings include a wide range of bespoke monogram pieces, such as the lovely salad plate we layered here from the Weave Dinnerware collection, with light blue monogram in 3 Letter Script.
The ivory flatware is French, by Sabre, while bespoke monogram napkins were designed and embroidered by the very talented Vilcy, of Sew Special By V. The fetching dog salt & pepper cellar is Bunny Williams for Ballard Designs, while the wrapped vase, woven placemats, and glassware are all vintage. With its muted tones and idyllic scenery, Burleigh’s Asiatic Pheasant has long been a favorite of tastemakers and brides, alike.
Antique Knife Box
French Ivory Flatware
This lovely Ivory-Handled Flatware is produced by the famed Sabre Paris and adds an air of elegance to the table.
The chinoiserie dining chairs pictured have been with us for many years and are a popular style from Ballard Designs. New chair cushions were recently purchase from British-based Mrs. Alice shop, and I adore the juxtaposition of the pale-blue gingham against the toile of the walls and the checkerboard of the floors — and the ruffles! Full disclosure: The shipping from England was quite expensive, but the cushions themselves were so inexpensive that, in total, they still ended up being more well-priced than anything else I had come across, not wanting to spend a fortune on cushions our boys will likely do their best to ruin, lol.
