Oh my goodness, what an amazing week it has been here on SMP. SOO amazing, in fact, that we're not quite ready for it to end. Nope, we have one last dose of pretty to share with you this lovely Friday evening... and it's all coming to you straight from our oh-so-fabulous friends at NewlyWish. Yep, we know how much you lovelies ADORE NewlyWish, the downright dazzling service that was created with the SOLE purpose of helping bride and grooms-to-be express their style in their wedding registry. And tonight's special feature will most definitely leave you giddy, because NewlyWish is here with examples on how each of you can put your own stylish stamp on your table settings. Awesome.
NewlyWish's line of pre-mixed dinnerware collections was styled by a group of fabulous wedding industry tastemakers (including our very own Abby Larson!), so you know you are filling your registry - and home - with beautiful pieces. Plus, you can even create your own unique combinations! Expressing your style has never been easier. Just take a look.
Vintage Chic by Abby Larson - Mixing a beautiful floral-inspired tea set with dinnerware boasting gold accents and fabulous cut crystal will create a look that is not only breathtaking, but evokes a sweeter than sweet (and oh-so-chic) vintage feel.
City Chateau by Always a Bridesmaid - Don't be afraid to combine contrasting shapes with vibrant hues. A much-needed pop of color in a salad plate or bowl together with baroque-inspired chargers and serving pieces will give you that urban feel you love... with a regal twist!
Classic with a Modern Twist by Mark Ingram - Marrying delicate lace patterns with gold detailing and soft white and ivory hues will create a look that is decidedly modern with the perfect touch of classic elegance. Swoon.
Gorgeous, no?!? And here's where it gets even more amazing. To help you express your style through your dinnerware, NewlyWish is giving one lucky winner a $4,500 shopping spree toward chic china and crystal from Waterford Wedgwood on NewlyWish.com.
