Thank You!

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to see our Julie Vos Trunk Show! It was a huge success. We love her jewelry as much as you do, so we’re holding it over until the end of the week.vday3

We have a number of events scheduled for the coming year, so keep an eye out for announcements. And if you’re still interested in any of the Julie Vos pieces, please contact our own gem, Eric!

Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL?

Although the Ravens aren’t in the game this year, the Superbowl is still taking place on Sunday. It’s Superbowl 50, as they’ve ditched the Roman numerals. FYI 50=L.

imageAlmost everyone does something for Superbowl, whether it’s watching the game with the intensity of 1000 suns, or only paying attention to the commercials. The other thing everyone does is EAT! Luckily, Halcyon House is here to help you with your serving needs… sorry that we can’t do anything about the food.

Whether you want to go classic with these beautiful ceramic serving pieces from TerraFirma, made by hand in New York City.IMG_0371

If you happen to have a rowdier crowd at your house, perhaps some unbreakable melamine pieces would work for you. These look like beautiful Proven├žal pieces, but they are actually lightweight melamine. Did I mention they’re unbreakable? IMG_4934

For your Superbowl libations, we suggest this terrific optical glass barware. Also unbreakable.

It’s not that we’re suggesting your party is going to get wild and crazy, but that we know that things happen! Nothing brings a party down like broken dishes.

As always, if you’re interested in anything you see, please contact our MVP Eric and may the best team win!

Vignettes

Do you know what a vignette is? Here’s what vocabulary.com has to say about it.image

At Halcyon House, we specialize in gorgeous vignettes, and they are often commented upon. Jonathan, Stiles and Eric are all responsible for arranging them, all to highlight a piece that we’re featuring for your perusal.

Here are a few of our recent scenes.
