Bring It To The Table — Mackenzie-Childs Launches Two New Enamel Flatware Collections
From Father’s Day brunches, lobster bakes, garden parties, Mexican fiestas, outdoor cookouts, and tea parties, summer is the best time to invite friends and family members over to your home so you can share great conversation, yummy treats, and plenty of laughter. Rather than the expected silver- or gold-plated flatware, decorate your table with whimsical cutlery that will capture the season’s exuberance and add a burst of color to each place setting. The two new MacKenzie-Childs enamel flatware collections constitute an elegant but playful alternative, setting a celebratory mood and showing guests your exquisite taste.
The Flower Market and Courtly Check flatware collections were both designed to complement existing porcelain flatware collections, perfectly mimicking their signature patterns. But, unlike their predecessors, the enamel cutlery pieces exude a more light-hearted mood. And, of course, they can be mixed and matched with any of the pre-existing pieces in their respective collections for an interesting array of textures and finishes.
The Mackenzie-Childs Flower Market 3-Piece Place Setting Collection ($150 for Set of 4 Place Settings at MacKenzie-Childs.com) features dishwasher-safe forks, knives, and spoons, each crafted out of sturdy stainless steel then coated in white enamel and decorated with a vibrant floral pattern incorporating yellow, pink, violet, orange, and azure daisies and sunflowers. For a more graphic setting, try the MacKenzie-Childs Courtly Check 3-Piece Place Setting Collection ($150 for Set of 4 Place Settings at MacKenzie-Childs.com), featuring a checkerboard pattern but replacing the standard opaque black squares with cheekier ones featuring green or cobalt blue scribbles.
These quirky cutlery sets add the requisite wow factor to any table — even if you’re using standard ceramic plates in solid black or white. Just imagine the possibilities!
