Perfectly Curated Tableware Compositions That Make Us Calm

Bob and I are no strangers to platters. Sure we are most known for our out-of-the-box presentation, like hanging churros from giant clear parasols. But that doesn’t mean we don’t appreciate a beautiful arrangement of tableware.

With the holiday season comes a slew of gatherings… some intended to delight and surprise their guests at every turn, and others a pure showing of tradition and cozy familiarity. We are lucky, we get to create and experience both.

Here are a collection of photographs displaying overhead shots of vessel groupings. I find myself hypnotically attracted to these shots. The compositions combined with the perfectly curated material combinations are surprisingly soothing. Almost as if a meditation… a similar feeling comes over me when perusing

We invite you to use this collection as a way to gather your calm… or simply treasure these beautifully designed objects.

Happy Holidays! Wishing you all TASTE-ful and delicious gatherings!
