In addition, Arte Italica has added key entertaining pieces to several of its best-selling collections.” These enchanting collections include:
Natale: A unique entertaining set, which is hand-made by skilled Italian artisans. This lovely, hand-painted collection is ideal for celebrating throughout the winter season. Berries and pine boughs surround graceful, snowy evergreens on each of these one-of-a-kind pieces. Natale can be paired with Chanti Dinnerware or add another layer of charm with Scavo Chargers and accessories. Handmade in Italy. Dishwasher and microwave safe.

Finezza: Artisans in northern Italy salvaged and reclaimed old ceramic molds in order to restore and produce Finezza (refined). An intricate lace design adorns the border and edges of this utterly unique and distinctive collection. In colors of warm ecru and heirloom blue, Finezza is both delicate and intriguing and will bring charm and beauty to any table setting. Handmade in Italy.

Peltro Antico (antique pewter): This collection coordinates with most of the company's existing dinnerware. It blends a rich pewter-gray color, with a glaze that is metallic and reflective. This finish, combined with contemporary shapes, offers a vintage yet modern feel that appeals to both traditional and current tastes. Peltro Antico combines beautifully with Castello, Tesoro and all Arte Italica pewter. Stoneware, handmade in Italy. Dishwasher and microwave safe.

Celebrate Earth Day with re-usable table linens from Hen House Linens

Hen House Linens’ line of versatile, easy-to-care-for home essentials is the perfect way to create a beautiful, paperless home this Earth Day, April 22.
The company asks:
  • How many paper napkins or paper towels do your kids go through every day? 
  • What about the plastic birthday table cloth that got thrown away with the wrapping paper? 
It’s the little things that add up. Machine-washable napkins, tablecloths and placemats can be used over and over, and then recycled and repurposed. Extending the life of your clothes by protecting them with a pretty Hen House apron is a great way to be sustainable.

The collection includes:

  • Napkins and Placemats: These generously sized napkins and effortless placemats are Hen House Linens’ most basic essentials. Keep six of every color you love on hand. 
  • Tablecloths and Runners: Tied with black saddle-stitched ribbon and a hangtag, these table linens add a little fancy to your everyday routine. The lovely splash of color makes a simple gathering rich and memorable. 
  • Cocktail Napkins: Your go-to hostess gift, each set of six napkins is tied with a saddle-stitched ribbon and hangtag. 
  • Decorative Pillows: In three versatile sizes, these decorative pillows change the look of a room in an instant. Inserts are a luxurious down-feather blend and custom designed for Hen House for a perfect fit. 
  • Cook’s Apron: This “one size fits every body” apron features an adjustable neck strap and long ties for a custom fit, a roomy pocket to hold tools of the trade and generous length that gives tremendous splash-back coverage. 
  • Cocktail Apron: Show off your hosting prowess with this cute cocktail apron, tied with a wide grosgrain ribbon and outfitted with a generous pocket to accommodate all your hostess accoutrements. 
  • Guest Towels: These user-friendly hand towels are as functional as they are fanciful, with sweet trim along the bottom.
  • Potholders: Hefty enough to wield a turkey with all the trimmings, these potholders are lined with heat resistant padding—making you the only saucy dish in your kitchen too hot to handle (available in two sizes).
