A glitzy, ritzy night at “21” with Bloomingdales and WYC
Bloomingdale’s 59th Street hosted a Registry event at the 21 Club near the end of April. Gatsby was the theme, and there was lots of glamour and glitz on the table!
Annette, pictured below in the 16” height, also comes in 14” and 18” sizes.
Below is the pretty Corinne Champagne Coupe filled with pink Champagne. Notice how the light catches the vertical optic pattern, creating lovely shadows on the table. How glamourous!
Here is the Corinne Coupe, accompanied by the Corinne Martini and Corinne Hollow Flute. There are many stemware and barware glasses to choose from in the Corinne pattern - see more here! They are all part of William Yeoward Crystal’s beautiful yet affordable American Bar collection.
Finally, here are our Callista Decanter and Kathleen Bottle Stand, which is used here as a snack dish. Both pieces are part of the Crystal collection. They look so pretty together on that mirrored tray!
Below is the Kathleen Bottle Stand by itself. These stands are traditionally used to hold a bottle, but the Kathleen Stand was used in a novel way at this event.

New stemware pattern: Anastasia
Anastasia is a beautiful, elegant pattern from our Crystal line. These versatile glasses will work in settings from modern to traditional. They are simply but gorgeously shaped with delicate cutting on the stems.
Below is a closer image of the large wine glass.
Pictured below is the adorable cocktail tumbler. The antique on which this pattern is based is modeled after this glass, which has a lovely Georgian Star on its base.
Here is the Anastasia Cocktail Tumbler with a refreshing Green Park cocktail, from William’s latest book, William Yeoward’s American Bar. It was made for William by Erick Lorincz at the American Bar at The Savory Hotel in London.
Below is the recipe for the Green Park, as well as an image of the original glass which had a cockerel pictured on it!

More pics from Dining by Design
Here are some photos from the fabulous and eclectic table coordinated by the ingeniously creative designer, Alexa Stevenson (formerly of WYC!) for the New York Design Center for DIFFA’s Dining by Design Event in March. The theme was “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner”, and all of the invited guests were famous icons (who also happen to be deceased!).
Alexa coordinated the overall theme and booth design, while other designers worked on each place setting. Three of the designers who collaborated with Alexa featured items from William Yeoward Crystal at their settings. Our thanks goes out to Thomas Burak, West Chin and Robert Passal for featuring us!
The next image is of a setting by West Chin, featuring our Avington Charger and Dessert Plate in Peking Orange (we Americans refer to it as a “salad plate”, which only shows why the Brits have more fun!).
What a show-stopper this table was! Congrats to Alexa, Leah Blank from NYDC, and all the designers who collaborated on the place settings.
Best of Britain in Traditional Home!
Hostess Rachel Hollis sets a magical table for afternoon tea, complete with Pearl Large Wine Glasses and Champagne Flutes.
Here’s a close up of our stemware from the previous image…
… and here is the entire table and room set for high tea. Traditional and very pretty! Would you care for some fresh fruit and scones?
William’s latest book also gets a nice mention in the “New & Next” section. After tea, make way for cocktails!
Monogram Mania in Martha Stewart Weddings
You can monogram many, many things, and what better time to do it than when you’re getting married? Martha Stewart Weddings features our Claudia Bottle Decanter, monogrammed for that personal touch, along with many other fun monogram-ables such as pillows, coasters, even lighting fixtures!
Pictured below is the Claudia Decanter in two sizes: Magnum and Bottle. These are great to engrave with initials, but images and messages can be engraved on them as well.
WYC in T&C!
Our vase ad looks stunning across from the Social Network: Weddings page in the May 2012 issue of Town & Country. Love it!
New WYC Vase ad in ‘flower’ Magazine!
Here is our ad for William Yeoward Crystal, featuring our vases, across from Margot Shaw’s “watering can” letter to her readers! We love that Margot thought our ad was so pretty that it ought to be across from her thoughts on timelessness.
Our Hortense placemats were also featured in the new tabletop section in ‘flower’ in this same issue! They fit right in to the floral scheme with their abstract motif, which looks as if one is looking down on a blooming rose.

Prince Charles presents the Dumfries House restoration in February’s AD
Prince Charles, who is described in this feature as “a tireless, and rather fearless, advocate of British heritage”, spear-headed the rescue and restoration of Dumfries House, an 18th-century villa in Ayrshire, Scotland.
Pictured below in the Pink Dining Room is a table set with William Yeoward Crystal’s Helena Stemware (Port/Sherry, Large Wine and Goblet) and Rose Goblet. Our stemware looks perfect in this stately setting!
Below is a closer view of the table. Pick up this month’s Architectural Digest to read more about this restoration and to see more gorgeous photos of Dumfries House.
Pictured below is the entire Helena suite, including the Champagne Flute.
