It's Time for our October Tabletop Event

It's October and that means it's time for our annual tabletop event. We've have a whole array of events coming up with the highlight a visit from Vietri founder and CEO, Susan Gravely.

With her endless enthusiasm and spirit, Susan will recount the story of Vietri’s beginnings and share Italian style and decorating ideas. Any Vietri items that are either purchased at the event or pre-ordered at the store
can be signed by Susan and inscribed with special Italian phrases. We're also offering a gift with purchase for those who buy Vietri items leading up to and at the event. Guests who spend $100 will receive a Vietri Old St. Nick cork stopper and those who spend $200 or more will receive a Vietri canapé plate in the Renna or Old St. Nick pattern in addition to the cork stopper. As a special bonus one lucky attendee will receive a signed Vietri Lastra Red Tavern pitcher. Any customer who's already bought Vietri since August 15 is automatically entered. Anyone attending the event can fill out an entry blank for a chance to win.

Come celebrate in the tradition of All Things Italian!

Next up is our annual Le Jacquard Francais trunkshow and sample sale. We have over 100 tablecloths and runners from renowned manufacturer Le Jacquard Francais, all at 30% off. Many of these styles are no longer available in the United States and once they're sold they gone for good. Stop in early for the best selection. Quite a few have already been snapped up by savvy collectors.

Lastly we have our annual dinnerware stock-up program. For a limited time we're offering discounts on all our ceramic dinnerware lines. 10% off 4 matching pieces, 15% off 8 matching pieces, and 20% off 12 matching pieces. Any serving pieces bought at the same time qualify for the same discount level. This is a great time to complete your existing sets or get something brand new for the holidays. Special orders are included in this offer. Due to our relationship with our dinnerware manufacturers we aren't allowed to offer this special online. Click here to shop online. There you will find the codes to get these great discounts. Or if you'd prefer, just give us a call at the store and we can take care of everything over the phone.

2015 Comes Early

Our 2015 Calendar Towels are here!

Regular shoppers to Stephen Frank know that Fall brings the arrival of the Le Jacquard Francais calendar towel. Every year these limited edition French Tea Towels sell out. We've doubled our orders for this year but still anticipate running out before the holidays. If you've not experienced the luxury of Le Jacquard you owe it to yourself to indulge in their tight cotton weave and glorious colors. Each year the pattern is different. For a very special hostess gift use these beautiful linens as a wrap for a bottle of wine or one of our fragrant boxed candles.

Gift Ideas for Mom

Mother's Day is just around the corner and we have a great array of gift ideas. First off we recommend something from Julia Knight's new Tulip Collection. In pale shades of Kiwi Green, Snow White, and the new Ice Pink, the tulip brings a beautiful touch to Julia's extensive flower collection. Pair with the new small Lily Pad tray for the perfect desert service.

How about a teacup or desert plate set from one of our Vietri patterns. The delicate shapes of Incanto bring rustic sophistication to any table. Our moms always love Michael Aram. You can't go wrong with any of his pieces, from Black Orchid to Pomegranate, every item tells an amazing store.

A ready standby is always a beautifully scented candle or diffuser. Our Agraria diffusers are the best in their class. Pure oils in 8 amazing fragrances. Aquiesse makes our new favorite candle. Soy based, clean burning, and wonderful scents.

Check out the web site or stop in the store and we'll get you all set up. Mom will never be happier!

Lastra from Vietri

We are so happy to introduce the newest color in our Lastra dinnerware collection from Vietri: AQUA. This is the softest and palest of Aquas we've seen. It pairs beautifully with Lastra's bright white. Try the white cream and sugar on the aqua oval tray. Layer an aqua charge with a white dinner plate and aqua salad plate. Use an aqua nut bowl with the white square platter for a lovely chip and dip. The combinations are endless. The Lastra collection has been our most popular line of dinnerware ever. Visit the store to see this amazing collection in person or click the photo below to see the complete collection online.

Lastra Aqua and Lastra Fish from Vietri
