Fast Fashion for the Table

At Homefest, we’re often asked about the latest trends in dinnerware and entertaining. Over the years, we’ve seen a departure from our mothers’ china cabinet with full service for 12 in favor of a bit more personality, durability, and function. Nowadays we want our dinnerware to reflect our personal aesthetic, fit with our busy lifestyle, and we want to know where our products are sourced and about the talented artisans who create them. We are yearning for handcrafted dinnerware that celebrates the authentic and imperfect charm of each unique piece. We want dishes that look great on a formal holiday table yet are equally accessible for a take-out dinner around the kitchen island. With this in mind, we’ve taken a diversified buying approach.

Fast Fashion for the Table

We’ve seen a huge growth in ‘trend dinnerware:’ appetizer plates, dinnerware, decorative bowls, and mugs in fun colors, textures, and patterns. These stylish and affordable pieces are an easy buy for a festive cocktail party or to add a little interest when mixed with your current tabletop collection.

We so often find ourselves hosting parties standing around the kitchen island or a buffet where guests end up gathered around the living room or on the patio. So we set out on the hunt to find dishes that embraced that casual entertaining vibe. Our latest selections include bold, graphic prints, earthy, organic pottery, and light, airy colors. They won’t break the bank and are a great way to bring a little fun to the table.

Designer Favorites

Our favorite talents in designer dinnerware are also bringing more personality to the table. The timeless classics like Juliska’s Berry & Thread and Vietri’s Lastra will always be mainstays but we’re also seeing fresh introductions in bold blues, a sorbet rainbow of colors, and unconventionally shaped dishes that are durable enough for daily use but chic enough for an elevated presentation.

If that rustic, authentic, one-of-a-kind vibe gives you all the feels, Terrafirma artisan Ellen Evans paints her collection through patterned textiles laid over each hand-thrown piece. The result is a textured, bold, and arresting on your table. On the other end of the handcrafted spectrum, Match Italian pewter exudes elegance and old world charm with rich traditional designs that will be cherished for generations.

Whether you’re purchasing dinnerware for your first home, a fantastic kitchen renovation, or this weekends’ party our tables are topped and the options are endless.  Come into Homefest or shop us online and let us help you curate a tableware collection that aligns with your lifestyle.
