reason to celebrate | pretty plates

Now that we are getting settled into our home I am excited to start casually entertaining again. Having a small stash of pretty plates is a great way to make impromptu gatherings come together with ease. These ones by iittala are gorgeous! If you are looking for a stack thrift stores often have great selections and Anthropologie has pretty ones in stock for summer.

PS. To further encourage your everyday celebrating Kinfolk magazine launched this morning. I just read it over my morning coffee. Beautiful! They even have ideas for entertaining with just yourself.

    oh wow, these plates are great and yay Kinfolk! funny story … iittala is a pretty fancy store and its very lovely … but ironically the only one in Minneapolis is placed right in the middle of the hood (aka Lake Street) … the juxtaposition makes me smile :) thanks for the post!

    Serving even simple food on charming plates makes all the difference! Even for non-party days. :-)
