Williams-Sonoma is a favorite among brides for their registry but the kitchen and home shop has so much more to offer. This Best Of Williams-Sonoma has our favorites whether you are shopping for a new home or just sprucing up for summer.
Read for a summer adventure? This picnic basket is perfect for afternoons on the beach or romantic meals for two under the stars. When entertaining at home, serve punch out of a large glass beverage dispenser with plenty of room for fruit. Sangria, anyone? Summers are for casual outdoor entertaining. These melamine bowls look like ceramic but won’t shatter if dropped on a brick patio. Sea urchin inspired condiment bowls will dress up the table alongside elegant bone servers. Plus two options for linens: a classic stripe or a kitschy ice cream theme. Only thing left to plan is the guest list.
All of these ideas can be repurposed after the fall chill sets in (indoor picnics?) but we have additional suggestions for those investing in lifelong pieces. Home bars add serious style whether you have a dedicated bar cart or a tray on a side table. This crystal shaker fits the current Gatsby craze but will retain its timelessness for many anniversaries to come. Le Cruset is a registry go-to for their dutch ovens and enameled pans. Jumpstart your mornings with their French press in a lovely blue hue. Another great bakeware option is a dipped baking dish from Emile Henry. After all the baking, treat your hands to fleur de sel lotion lovely enough to display by the sink. On your kitchen table, keep this honey pot that will always remind you of your sweet days together. Round out your registry with Provençal-inspired oven mitts and a classic pepper mill.
