Serve It Up!
Let’s begin by highlighting some top trends in fall serveware. In Crate & Barrel’s Late Fall 2016 catalogue, the following description appears: “Still life comes to life. The art of an early fall party? Simple flavors and seasonal presentation. Wood grain, watercolor leaves and a gleam of rose gold flatware.”
ferm LIVING’s Asymmetric Cutting Boards celebrate the beauty of solid smoked oak. Use them for chopping, serving and displaying!
This Oven-to-Table Entertaining Platter from Uncommon Goods features a soapstone platter with a wooden caddy. Bonus: the platter can be chilled or heated before serving time to ensure that the food stays at its proper temperature:
For another oven-to-table piece from Uncommon Goods, check out this Soapstone Pot with Copper Handle. Once again, we celebrate the temperature regulating properties of soapstone, this time enhanced by the elegant accent of hammered copper. Perfect for fall!…
Make a statement with marble! CB2’s Essex Marble Servers combine honed white marble with a metallic base for an ultra-sleek presentation. These eye-catching pieces also make great gifts.
Modern marble and brass are even appearing in the new offerings of brands known for a bohemian/eclectic vibe, such as Anthropologie. Below we see the Brass Inlay Cheese Board:
These Marble Trivets from Fort Standard have been our favorites for many a season, yet their geometric style and stone surfaces are perfectly on trend for the fall of 2016:
Warm metallic and wooden touches are fall-fabulous, but don’t forget about the simple power of black and white. Serve up some wine and cheese against this dual-toned backdrop, which includes the Longboard Server tray:
One of this fall’s biggest trends: rich hues. In fact, the Autumn/Winter Collection from Broste Copenhagen is filled with them. As nature’s bounty comes to the table, and as leaves fall and reveal branches, display hints of the outdoors along with beautiful serveware. Set your finds against a deep, saturated backdrop for a bigger impact:
Broste Cophenhagen’s new catalogue reminds us to let our kitchenware become our serveware (cutting boards can double as serving boards), and to revel in this fall’s palette of dusty blues, pinks and teals (with a hint of mint and mustard):
Don’t forget about cocktail hour! Crate & Barrel has you covered. In fact, their Late Fall 2016 catalog features interesting vignettes (and even highlights a couple of fall drink recipes). Below we see the Coupe Cocktail Glass and the Orb Tray, designed by Aaron Probyn. Get the recipe for the Spiced Manhattan (shown below) here!
As with the rose gold flatware trend, barware can veer into copper territory as well. From a copper version of the Orb Tray above to the new Martin Copper Barware, sometimes all you need is a rosy-toned metallic to warm up your fall table!
Rosy accents meet metallic shine in this new Renesse glassware from Anthropologie. Thanks to 18K gold-decaled embellishment, your fall entertaining endeavors can be filled with detail, dimension, glamour and charm.
In fact, when it comes to timeless design, it’s hard to top the new offerings from Anthropologie (including the Enchante Highball, shown below). Geometry reigns:
Keep those bar tools organized with CB2’s Top Shelf Bar Tool Set with Stand, which stylishly presents all of the essentials. Metallic cocktail serving style takes center stage in the photo below:
