When Edwin and I registered for our wedding, we registered for a set of everyday china to be used on a daily basis and a set of occasion china that would forever be our wedding china. For our wedding china, we selected Herend ‘Chinese Bouquet’. And for our everyday china, we selected Juliska ‘Berry & Thread’. We use our Juliska Berry & Thread dinnerware every single day and absolutely love it beyond words! I get asked about it all the time on Instagram when I share snaps of our table or meals we’ve prepared.
Honestly, I can’t say enough wonderful things about Juliska! I knew I wanted to pick a Juliska collection for our registry because my mom has Juliska dinnerware and I’ve always loved the designs of the brand, admired the high quality of the pieces, and relished in the special touch Juliska adds to a kitchen or dining room. Since I’ve been a longtime admirer and user of Juliska, I was thrilled when they reached out after seeing me use our Berry & Thread dinnerware on Instagram.
P.S. I have a unique shopping code for Juliska! Now though October 30th, 2020 enter code ‘JILLIANCARES’ at checkout and 10% of your purchase value will be donated, via Meals on Wheels, to support seniors in need during this unprecedented time.
Creating Unforgettable Memories at Home
When Juliska asked me to bring a little magic to my house by setting a table, I knew two things: 1) I wanted to incorporate the Berry & Thread dinnerware we already owned and 2) I wanted to set a coastal inspired table to embrace Charleston’s seaside location. My sister, Sarah, and I had so much fun tinkering with the table before my family sat down for a delicious dinner of citrus marinated wreckfish, steamed veggies, and buttered bread. It really was a summer night I won’t forget!
Setting a Blue and White Coastal Inspired Table
To set the table, I used a mix from Juliska’s different dinnerware and glassware collections. To set a similar table this summer, look no further:
Berry & Thread Stemmed Wine Glasses
Natural Bamboo 5pc Place Settings
Berry & Thread Whitewash Dinner Plates
Berry & Thread Sea Life Delft Blue Crackle “Fish” Dessert/Salad Plates
Berry & Thread Sea Life Delft Blue Crackle “Fish” Platter
Juliska’s core beliefs are something I believe in too. Juliska believes cultivating a beautiful home life is paramount to human connection and overall well-being. They stand to bring a little magic into the everyday. Even into mundane moments we experience on a regular basis, by being intentional about creating unforgettable memories at home. What’s the easiest way to do this? By gathering loved ones together around a table for delicious food, fantastic company, and memorable conversation. This really resonates with me as my family has always prioritized sitting down together for family meals day-to-day and always for holidays with our extended family.
In our current world, living during the Covid pandemic, we’ve been extremely intentional about who we see and when.
It can be isolating but we feel grateful to have some of my family here (although we miss Edwin’s immensely) and a small close circle of friends we’ve committed to our ‘Covid circle’. Now, more than ever, I feel an increasing need to put an effort into gathering around the table to nurture relationships and human connection. Entertaining definitely looks different these days. But we can all still find reasons to gather, celebrate, set the table, and make moments feel special with our loved ones.
I was just touched when Juliska thought of me to help them spread some love and create unforgettable moments at home! I was even more excited knowing that partnering with Juliska would give me the opportunity to give back.
