The Simple Life

Simple Life Istambul

With Thanksgiving just a few weeks away, I’ve been thinking about setting a less conventional table this year and the marbled dinnerware by Simple Life Istanbul would do the trick. Even just one of these bowls filled with nuts would change my tablescape.  Also, we will be at a ball on Thanksgiving Eve, so I need to make the dinner less of a production; not having to hand wash my grandmother’s china would be a time-saver.

I’m thinking hostess gifts, too…

  • Wow – I love these. Amazing that they’re made from different clays coming together and that the marbleized pattern is not a glaze. Really beautiful.

  • These are beautiful. Are the dinner plates of a normal size? I dislike dinner plates that are as big as chargers — they’re so hard to store!

  • Mix it with grandma’s and put grandma’s in the dishwasher on delicate cycle.❤️

  • If you weren’t attending a ball the night before, I would urge you to not break tradition with dishes. But you can’t possibly throw the usual Thanksgiving if you are to fully embrace and enjoy the ball and your special occasion with your family. Go for the special occasion this year, and let other things fall together as they may. A new Thanksgiving tradition began at our house when we didn’t have a kitchen and my husband decided to put the turkey on the rotisserie. It was the best ever and we have never cooked it indoors since. A very positive development in my life.
