A family mealtime is a perfect moment to gather, sit at eye-level and have a casual conversation. New research shows families that get together at a table for dinner have greater emotional well-being. What researchers are encouraging is even turning off the electronics which includes television, smart phones, tablets etc., and enjoy each others company in preferably a nice setting.
A nice table setting need not cost a fortune. Fitz and Floyd and Maxwell & Williams, are two sister housewares brands that I want to introduce to you in this blog post. Both sell a large collection of high-quality homewares at a reasonable price. Fitz and Floyd specialize in hand-painted ceramic giftware, dinnerware, tableware, decorative accessories, and collectibles. Maxwell & Williams on the other hand, has a diverse collection of ceramics, glass, and acrylic homewares. Together Fitz and Floyd and Maxwell & Williams cover the entire spectrum of homewares from the kitchen to the tabletop and beyond. I selected “Alfresco Pasta Set from Maxwell & Williams comes with one Large Serving Bowl and 4 Pasta Bowls” and “Flower Power 14 Oz Mug Set Of 4” for my review.
I’ve only nice things to say about the pasta serving blow set. It is made out of fine quality porcelain, and the prints are like seeing the vegetables. The set arrived flawless like what’s on their online store. It is light but not too delicate. The serving bowl is eleven inches wide, and the individual bowls are eight inches wide. I will just hand wash this because it is too pretty! It is perfect for a family of four. For the price it is currently offered, you might want to consider one for yourself or for someone special.
The “Flower Power” mugs will cheer up anyone. These are stylish and retro. The handles are a nice size and are comfortable to hold on to. The quality of the prints are impressive and the color combinations are stunning. It holds a good quantity of drinks and just perfect to start the day. Here are some pictures for you –
