Our Showroom all dressed up for the NY Gift Show!
The Gift Show just wrapped up, and despite temperatures ranging from the 20’s to the 60’s Farenheit, we all managed to get through it just fine! As usual, we spruced up the Showroom with loads of fresh cut flowers, which looked and smelled wonderful. We also made some display changes which really revived the look of the Showroom.
Below is a beautiful buffet set-up that Darren came up with, including one of the new midnight blue tablecloths we put on some of the tables.
A lovely combination of colors on our front table, with lemons under the Rosa Beehive adding a pop of yellow:
Here’s that gorgeous midnight blue tablecloth again. The colorful Vita Goblets really work when pulled together with the white Apsley China.
We’ve done a purple floral theme on the Country table below for the past few shows, paired with the Amethyst collection. This time, we introduced the Garland Vases, and went bright and sunny with yellow, green and orange.
The new Liza Vases in the foreground below are offered in the same colors as the latest Sophie Vases. They can add a fun pop of color just about anywhere!
Finally, the Country Stemware and American Bar found a new home. When the sun comes in the Showroom, the colorful Country glasses really shine!

Introducing the American Bar collection
Here is a sneak peak at a new collection of mouth-blown glass from William Yeoward Crystal called American Bar!
(Below - Dakota barware)
This collection evokes the Roaring ‘20’s and the era of Prohibition that followed, when many of the most brilliant American bartenders set up shop in European cities, including at the Savoy Hotel’s ‘The American Bar’ in London. In fact, many other chic hotel bars of that period in cities like London and Paris were known as “American bars”.
(Below: Lillian cocktail/champagne glass and cocktail jug)
Named after famous actresses of the era such as Lillian Gish and Marlene Deitrich, this collection reflects the glamour of this by-gone era. These glasses and barware pieces make you want to have a couple cocktails and cut a rug!

At prices ranging from $21 - $150, the American Bar collection is both appealing and affordable!
