Fall and Winter Kitchen and Dining Must-Have’s!
The holidays are upon us, and the culinary wizardry usually starts in the fall. It’s a time for baking pies, cookies, muffins, and preparing comfort foods your family loves. If you’re looking to add some style and pizzaz to your kitchen and dining experience, try updating some of those old appliances. The aesthetic experience of your overall home, especially your kitchen deserve some love to keep you inspired. If you’ve recently updated or purchased a home with your dream kitchen, you’re fully aware of the allure that brings everyone into that specific area. It’s beautiful, from top to bottom. The little things matter too, though. Down to the plateware, flatware, bakeware, cookware, glassware, knives, and even measuring cups and spoons. We want them to be pleasing to look at. Especially if some of these items will become countertop items, or out in the open more often than not. It adds to the beauty of your space, and moreover inspires and motivates you to utilize them.
So donate that old stained cookware and treat yourself to some of these delightful kitchen and dining items that will make you smile every time you use them!
Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch® Nonstick 6-Piece Essentials Bakeware Set
Oh how we LOVE this set of bakeware! The light gold tinged bakeware is nonstick, and comes in a half sheet pan, cookie sheet, quarter cookie sheet, muffin tin, cooling rack, and various cake pan sizes and shapes. It’s so beautiful, it almost begs for you to purchase the entire set. Available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma.
Rose Gold Kitchenaid Stand Mixer
We’re sticking with the gold theme, here. If you’re thinking of purchasing a new stand-mixer for all of your holiday baking and beyond, this gorgeous gem just might force you to actually make it happen. Shoot! Several of us already have one and this one makes us wonder if a replacement is in order. Hmmmm? Rose gold is in trend, but we think it’s a timeless one. The almost bras-like hue simply adds some variety to the gold, and silver repertoire. This stand mixer fairs well with many types of decor, from French country chic, to Mediterranean styles, and even sleek modern. Available at various stores including Sur La Table, Macy’s, Bed Bath and Beyond, or Williams-Sonoma.

Many of us like to switch up our holiday dining experiences with new decorative elements. These antique harvest charger plates come in a variety of colors, all of which compliment any holiday, really. Burgundy-wine, gold, silver and even a brassy rose gold are available. The antique processing means no two are alike, which adds to their character. These plates are 13″ in diameter, so they’d work well with a 10″ or 12″ diameter dining plate. We say get them all to offer variety. Available at Sur La Table.
