It's time to start thinking about Thanksgiving. Setting your table with style means working with a mix of inherited pieces and new things, to create something uniquely yours. This combination of old and new can be tied together through color, pattern, or design period. Pairing colors together is a great way to enhance and use what you have. But maybe you are ready for something new. The monogram trend continues, and I've found a wonderful new resource for all you china aficionados. It's a new dinnerware company called Sasha Nicholas. Started by Cynthia Nouri, a former St. Louis-based dentist who knows the ins and outs of porcelain and gold, the company idea ignited after her love affair with fine china and European porcelain came about from visits to Staffordshire. Each porcelain piece is created in Europe and is oven and dishwasher safe. The amazing part? It ships within 2 weeks, so you can have it in time for the holidays! Choose from 6 hand done monogram styles and 5 colors. If you want something specifically tailored to your needs like a crest or unique monogram, their specialty is customization, and for an upcharge they can do any monogram in green, navy, black, light blue or raspberry, with their custom design service. You can also do a meaningful inscription on the back of each piece, furthering the highly personalized experience. Found at specialized shops around the country and on their website, Sasha Nicholas encourages using your china frequently, elevating the everyday.
