Entertaining with Macy’s Registry, 3 Ways + Fall Sweepstakes


Photos by:

Today we’re partnering with Macy’s to showcase some of our favorite items in their registry — particularly how you can put them to entertaining use! They carry such a vast collection of household names that you truly can’t go wrong, but it’s nice to have a good mix of multi-purpose and just-because when creating your list. With their huge sweepstakes in the coming weeks, we’re here to give you the dish on which pieces we love best for some of the most exciting occasions to look forward to as a couple.

We channeled simple, statement-making designs in cool colors, as blues often have a calming presence, but go with your gut and select the pieces that most represent you as a couple. That’s what a housewarming is all about!
