  • Hamptons Classic: Fern stemware in AD

    Fern Large Wines from our Crystal Collection appear on the dining room table of the Southampton estate of David Hidalgo and Mary Ann Tighe in the July/August issue of Architectural Digest.  Mary Ann, a power broker in commercial real estate, enlisted a "who's who" team of architects and designers to achieve her specific vision of a grand estate.  The interior designer Tighe selected was venerable AD100 designer Bunny Williams.  Williams' masterful use of color in the rooms, combined with lovely furnishings and objects both antique and new, creates the grand yet bucolic environment that Tighe envisioned.

     

    Our Fern pattern is available in a wide variety of stemware and giftware; the stemware adds an appealing organic element to the table.  Each piece is expertly mouth-blown and copper-wheel engraved to give the pattern depth and dimension.  Add Fern stemware to your collection to elevate your own table setting!

  • Punch Power: retro entertaining made fresh in Traditional Home

    Kimberly Schlegel Whitman sets a beautiful table in Traditional Home's "Gatherings" feature in the May/June 2018 issue.  Amongst many other lovely elements of the tablescape, our Gloria Large Wines & Goblets and Fern Champagne Flutes help to set an elegant stage.

     

    Kimberly's latest book is Parties Around a Punch Bowl; in it, she extols the value of the punch bowl for "keep[ing] both guests and flavors moving".  Serving punch is inherently festive and encourages social interaction - when you've finished a cup or glass of punch, you are prompted to get up to refill the glass on your own.  Kimberly points out that the flavors can change as ingredients run out and new ones are added to the mix.

     

    At a luncheon thrown at her parents' home in Beverly Hills, Kimberly shows us how formal needn't be fussy - instead a formal setting using "relics of yesteryear" can make an event more special, while remaining festive and fun!  Pull out the punch bowl you inherited - or buy a new one you love, such as our Wisteria Punch Bowl - to add a bit of retro glamour to your next party!  The Wisteria Punch Bowl can also be purchased as part of a Punch Set, with cups and a ladle.

  • In bloom: floral displays from April 2018 Tabletop Show

    We wanted to share photos of our flower arrangements from the April Tabletop Show.  Larger retailers usually attend this show, so we made an effort to incorporate Holiday-ready flowers (and virtually an entire pine tree!) into our arrangements.

     

    We hope you enjoy these images!

  • Apres l'entree: WYC featured during Tabletop Show

    Designer Paris Forino featured several William Yeoward Crystal items on her tablescape in 41 Madison's lobby during the April 2018 Tabletop Show.   The delightful table, based on the theme "L'apres L'entree: Sweet Treats that Sing Spring", featured lots of pastel shades in the dinnerware and the flowers, evocative of the fresh awakening of Spring.  Even the inviting macarons were in pastel shades!

     

    William Yeoward Crystal items featured include:

    Phoebe Centerpiece (holding the fruit)

    Cristina 6" & 8" Flower Vases

    Iona Ships Decanter

  • Summer settings: Palmyra in Southern Lady

    We were pleased to see our Palmyra Wine glass from our American Bar Collection in Southern Lady's May/June 2018 issue, in their "Mix & Match" feature.  In this issue, we see how the table can be set two ways using the same dark green dinner plate with different table setting elements (chargers, glassware, cutlery, etc) in each tablescape.

     

    Our Palmyra Wine is a perfect addition to the more formal, sophisticated setting of the two.  Our Palmyra stemware is made by hand, and the palm pattern is copper-wheel engraved by artisans trained in centuries-old techniques.  The palm pattern adds whimsy, while the classic shape of the glass elevates the setting.  There are other stemware options in Palmyra, as well as barware and giftware: explore them HERE.

     

    We hope this story encourages you to set lovely tablescapes all summer long!

     

    The Palmyra pattern is inspired by the Palmrya Atoll in the Pacific Ocean, where research is conducted to study and hopefully preserve the marine environment, particularly the coral reefs and sea turtles that thrive in the area.  William Yeoward Crystal supports these efforts by donating a portion of the sales of all items in the Palmyra pattern to help fund this research.
