I think it’s easy to be inspired by the place settings and offerings by Juliska (hard J) that are available at Careful Peach.  Each time I stop in to peruse I find myself wanting to replace even the curtains in my dining room to match these place settings.  There is a casual comfort to the designs that communicates exactly what the design team at Juliska was trying to accomplish: “Evocative of time-worn statues, pebble pathways, and lilies, Whitewash is eternally elegant.”

Truth be told I get the feeling that having a simple grapefruit breakfast could very easily transport me to Provence, if enjoyed on Juliska.  

Even if you aren’t considering participating in Careful Peach’s Juliska “Completion” Event through May 15th, now is a great time to go in and look at some of the new pieces Careful Peach has added to their repertoire.  

Of course I’m giving you a sneak peak.

And here is a thought for beginning a gift tradition with someone in your family.   In college, my grandmother started sending me mugs and plates from a Waterford set called Sarah’s Garden.  One by one, she decided that the set, the name, the connection to Princess Sarah Ferguson was just too much and she had to share it.  My birthdays and holidays guaranteed a piece as an accessory.   When I got married, registering for the rest for the completion of this tableware, seemed like a natural process.

Juliska tableware is the first set I have thought about sharing in this same way for someone else.  With my daughter’s first communion fast approaching, I might just begin the tradition with her a little early.   It seems like the perfect special gift to begin her foray into our family's fascination with place settings.
