Vietri Love


It's no secret that I have a

serious case of

"dish love".



When out shopping I'm always drawn to tables

set with the hand-crafted and exquisitely hand-painted

Vietri Italian Dinnerware.



Red Hearts for Valentine's Day



Pair up perfectly with the lacy

goodness of Vietri's Incanto.



~ De Medici Dots ~ Baroque Curves ~

~ Antique Lace ~ Olive Branches ~ Wildflowers ~



Add in red Vietri stems for a touch of sass.



A simple centerpiece of luscious

red hearts atop stacked red glass cake stands . . .



Sandwiched between a pair of

Incanto claw footed candleholders

that make a statement all their own

with a majestic height of 20".




Each piece in this pattern is enchanting.

The sculptural layers against the

matelasse placemats make a regal

statement upon the red linen cloth.




Reverse the scenario with a

formal white cloth for a totally different look.



Start with a textural red placemat,

then add on the layers of Incanto.



Watch the magic as the

textures play against each other.



They are certain to enchant your valentine.



Toss in a touch of sparkle . . .



And loads of chocolate hearts.



Ah, yes!

Vietri Love
