Silver Style: A Guide to Spring Tablescaping

“At the heart of our philosophy lies the belief that silverware, no matter how cherished, deserves to fulfill its purpose: to accompany you in a delicious meal.”

Spring has arrived! The birds are chirping, the Bay Area fog is dissipating, and according to Punxsutawney Phil, winter is officially behind us. It’s time to shake off the remnants of winter and infuse your home with a fresh, vibrant energy.

We eagerly embrace the arrival of spring each year, and this season, we’re excited to share a few tips to help you make the most of this uplifting time. Join us as we dive into our guide on brightening your day and your tablescape with the timeless elegance of silver, whether for Easter celebrations or simply to elevate an exceptionally sunny day.

Tip #1: The Showstopper, The Vase

This year, silver is undeniably en vogue. Whether it’s the sleek chrome vases gracing the shelves of Neiman Marcus or the charming vintage finds on Etsy, the silver vase is stealing the spotlight on the most fashionable dining tables. Yet, while trends come and go, we advocate for a more enduring approach by incorporating an heirloom piece.

Instead of succumbing to the allure of the latest styles, we encourage you to breathe new life into that forgotten silver vase in the depths of your garage. Not only is this choice sustainable, but it also infuses your table setting with a unique touch of family history.

The silver vase commands attention with its shine and sophistication, instantly capturing the gaze of any guest, and we would love to assist you in creating a captivating centerpiece this spring season.

Tip #2: The Details, The Candle Holder

While candle holders may go unnoticed at first glance, they play a crucial role in enhancing the intricate beauty of a dining set. Unlike the central presence of a vase, candle holders offer subtle yet significant details, adding depth and dimension to the table.

To fully embrace the new season, we recommend pairing your candle holders with pastel-colored candles, incorporating a sense of freshness to your table. For a harmonious ensemble, consider coordinating your candle colors with complementary hues or matching them to the tones of your flowers or tablecloths. This thoughtful attention to detail will not only elevate the aesthetics of your table but also create a cohesive and inviting ambiance.

Tip #3: The Essentials, The Silverware

Last but not least, the backbone of a beautiful dining set is silverware. Unlike the striking presence of a vase or the delicate allure of candlelight, silverware embodies sophistication and practicality. 

This spring, we urge you to liberate your antique silverware set from its display shelf, denying the notion of it being “too nice to use.” At the heart of our philosophy lies the belief that silverware, no matter how cherished, deserves to fulfill its purpose: to accompany you in a delicious meal. With the season in full bloom, seize the opportunity to indulge and elevate the occasion with your expertly crafted and engraved utensils.


Now that you’ve granted yourself permission to dust off your china set and embrace your finest silverware, it’s time to complement these pieces with thoughtful accents. Consider adorning your table with floral napkins or doilies, enhancing the beauty of your utensils with the vibrant colors and textures of spring. 

We hope that our guide has provided you with inspiration. Now, let’s raise our glasses to toast the new season. Happy Spring!
