Well, not Spain Spain (but wouldn't that be nice?). Last Sunday, I had a tiny gathering at my place featuring tapas, my favorite cava, other traditional Spanish things, and the perfect dinnerware and drinkware from Snowe. Kristy and I had been wanting to do something Spanish-themed forever, ever since I brought home some beautiful vacuum-sealed Iberico from Barcelona, and we finally got to make it happen. We picked up a lot of our goods from Despaña, which is one of the cutest food stores in the city – their shopping bags are sweet little straw baskets. Though most of the treats we enjoyed came from there, we also were treated to the most delicious Spanish tortilla I've ever had in my life, made by the talented Fred from Té Company.
I don't have a proper dinner table, so this kind of casual entertaining is all I can really pull off. Everyone can gather around the coffee table and I don't have to worry about proper place settings. The little appetizer plates from Snowe were a great size for this kind of gathering. Perfect for a slice of Spanish tortilla and perfect for the almond cake (made by Kristy) that ensued. They also feel nice to the touch. I'm very picky about my dinnerware, and these are thin enough that they don't feel clunky but not so thin that they feel precious.
We also used Snowe's essential glasses, which are also a nice weight and shape, as well as their white wine glasses, which feel durable but again, not clunky (that is so key). Oh, and their cocktail napkins are also super appropriate here and crinkle nicely too.
If you're not familiar with Snowe though, I'd totally recommend getting lost in their site and offerings for a bit. That's certainly what happened to me the first time I stumbled upon it. I immediately fell in love with their photography and content. They'd be a great source for all your entertaining needs without breaking the bank, or for prepping your guest room, or just for a very useful housewarming gift for a friend.
