If we’ve learned anything from last year, it’s the importance of embracing every chance to celebrate with loved ones, gathering around a table set with intention, and connecting over delicious food and deep conversation. We’re on a mission to help unfulfilled homemakers become present ones, who let go of perfection and feel relaxed when the people who matter most walk through the door. That’s our reason behind creating a stunning and sophisticated Cinco de Mayo tablescape with our brand-new APIARY Spring/Summer 2021 Collection that brings in subtle festive hues for the holiday and has timeless pieces designed for a relaxed and welcoming celebration.

We were beyond thrilled to partner with Work Your Closet, who photographed each of our designs so beautifully, and Patina & Petals who meticulously designed the floral accents to highlight each of our tablescapes perfectly.

As you may know, we believe every hostess should be able to focus on what matters most: creating meaningful moments with loved ones. Our APIARY Collection is designed to allow you to create a warm and inviting gathering with family and friends without experiencing stress or overwhelm. And, of course, we used one of our favorite #HostfulHacks when creating all our designs: our Collection is full of entertaining essentials that can be used throughout the season , making hosting in style simple and affordable.
So, what comes to mind when you think about opening your door? Are you filled with excitement and joy, or are those feelings overshadowed by the fears of imperfection and overwhelm? We know that many women, just like you, feel weighed down by the stress associated with hosting and entertaining. That stress is anchored by myths we all have believed at one point or another, but it’s time to lighten the atmosphere, allowing ourselves to enjoy the beauty of opening up our homes to loved ones.
With that in mind, we want to challenge you, just like we challenged ourselves, to shift your mindset when it comes to hosting and entertaining. We want to rewrite what it means to be a homemaker by making it easier for you to open your heart and home. Allow yourself to let go of perfection, the endless preparation and the worrying over your to-do list. Our hope is that when you think about hosting, all that comes to mind is the joy that will fill the space around your table. Let us help you begin this journey.
Whether your celebration will host the people in your own home or family and friends ready to reconnect, here are two things you don’t even have to worry about: your table setting and menu. Because we know why you gather with loved ones – and it isn’t for all that stress and overwhelm! It’s to create those precious memories that will live on for generations. So, let us give you the gift of timeless, stunning APIARY pieces that create the welcoming and engaging atmosphere we all want as we open our doors.
Moreover, we’ve even got your festive recipes all planned out with Your Complete Cinco de Mayo Menu! From appetizers all the way to dessert and everything in between, we’ve got you covered for a stress-free and relaxed gathering. So check those items off your to-do list and get ready for some celebrating with loved ones – because tables are made for gathering.
For this tablescape, we chose a foundational throw in a beautiful sand hue with fringe details. The neutral color allows for other pieces to be showcased without competing for attention, while also being the item that pulls the whole design together.
With a rich history in the making, our ceramic dinnerware is handcrafted by Tunisian artisans using a wet clay carefully formed on presses and wheels and then dried. This collection is ethically sourced and truly unique as no two pieces are identical. As you select your dinnerware from this collection, simply imagine yourself traveling through a Tunisian open air market while making your purchase from a local artisan.
Decorative serveware is a must when serving loved ones. Not only does it make the hostess’ job simpler, it also encourages a communal, shared experience as pitchers, dishes and more are passed around the table.
