Tiffany has been married for 10 years and is the mother to 2 sweet boys. She has been helping couples create their perfect gift registry since 2012.
- What is one item every couple registries for?
Barware. Wine glasses and martini glasses plus a good decanter. The couple’s today want to entertain and have their bar cart stocked with the essentials. They are looking for something more sophisticated as they are past their stage of life of serving beer to their guests in the cans it came in.
- What is a must-have item that you suggest?
A special photo frame for the engagement or wedding photo that holds the epitome of that special moment.
- What is your favorite china pattern?
Anna Weatherley’s Simply Anna is a one of my personal favorites as it is a modern play on a traditional pattern. I also love Waterford Lismore Lace and would suggest to mix and match the 2 of these patterns to achieve a unique yet classic look.
- What is one item you neglected to register and wish you had today?
Good crystal. Even if you opt for a plain and simple pattern, good crystal always feels good in the hand. It can be used for multiple occasions – from brunch to cocktails to a quiet evening at home. A good glass is key. The Waterford Lismore etched crystal would be my go-to pick.
- Any trends you are noticing with your couples?
For the past few years, I noticed many couples were registering for a more modern and contemporary look as they mainly selected white dishes. Now I am seeing a trend towards the traditional and gold is making a huge comeback not only in china but all aspects of home décor as well.
What is one piece of advice you would give to new couples? 10 years of marriage has taught me that you don’t have to make a decision right away. Take the time to think. Compromise is key. And to pick your battles.
