Botanical Leaf Collection
The Botanical Leaf Collection, like the coordinating Michael Aram collection, takes its inspiration from foliage. The wide leaf shaped melamine appetizer/dessert plate celebrates the beautiful forms and textures found in nature. The other melamine and fine paper dinnerware are adorned with a delicate leaf design reminiscent of eucalyptus and seagrape leaves. Gossamer-like veils of soft mint, white and silver are accentuated with shimmer and foil details making this a stunning collection for an entertainment occasion.
MADHOUSE Ideas from Michael Aram
“The image of leaves is eternal and has some kind of meaning for almost everyone. For me, this motif conjures a sense of freshness and fragility with an ethereal quality.” –Michael Aram
Host a Room-of-the-House Bridal Shower
April showers bring May flowers, and May flowers celebrate June weddings. Take advantage of the beautiful late-spring weather with a garden party to honor the bride-to-be. Create an ethereal setting with soft colors and enjoy your dining room alfresco by serving a wonderful luncheon with the MADHOUSE Botanical Leaf dinnerware. After lunch is when the real fun will start with a room-of-the-house bridal shower.
A room-of-the-house bridal shower can focus on furnishing each room or one specific room in the bride’s new home. When planning the shower, sneak a peek at the bride’s registry to decide what will be best for her needs. If your party will focus on the whole house, divide the available rooms amongst each of the guests including this information in the invitation. If the party will furnish one room, make sure to include which room the guest is assigned and the registry information in the invitation.
Regardless of how the rooms are divvied up, the host gets first pick, and the kitchen is always a great start since most newlyweds will register for formal dinnerware, cutlery and drinkware to begin a collection. Leave the fine china for family members to furnish and surprise the new couple with a great casual dinnerware set like the MADHOUSE melamine dinnerware. With products including serving trays, dinner plates and drinkware, your guest of honor will be prepared for casual entertainment.
As she opens her gifts, make sure to keep your camera handy or ask a friend to capture the beautiful moments of the bridal shower. Matching Michael Aram Botanical Leaf picture frames make beautiful shower favors, and you can provide the bride-to-be with prints of the photos to include in thank you notes. This is a wonderful way for guests to cherish the memories long after the party has ended.
