Winterthur Store Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}

6:25 AM

***GIVEAWAY CLOSED***

I definitely have a love for pretty dishes. My only downfall is that I really don't have a place to display them...no china cupboard, sideboard, etc. All my kitchen cabinets are closed fronts so there is no way to see inside of them (really, a good thing!!). Someday though, I dream of having a china cabinet full of my pretty dishes that are currently packed away. Back when I was in college, I was a designer for Home and Garden Party and as a perk, I was able to purchase alot of really pretty dishes at a discounted price. This was how I managed to fill my hope chest with so much gorgeous pottery and home decorations. Pottery has to be a favorite of mine too...I love how rustic and elegant it looks!!
Today, I have the privilege to introduce you all to the Winterthur Store; an online shopping site that carries just about anything you could want for your home. When I first visited Winterthur Store, I was immediately pulled in by all the gorgeous items that they have. Before I continue with my review, here is a bit more about this company, a sister company of Plow & Hearth...

We take our inspiration from the beautiful Winterthur estate located in the Brandywine Valley of Delaware. From 1839, four generations of the du Pont family called Winterthur home. Today the home and gardens are open to the public, who can share the vision of Henry Francis du Pont. The extraordinary museum, garden, and library offer a variety of tours, exhibitions, and programs for all ages. Our goal is to offer beautiful accessories and gifts that remind us of the elegance of Henry du Ponts era, along with modern items that enhance the atmosphere and beauty of your home and garden.

Browsing the Winterthur Store's website was certainly fun...I had a VERY difficult time choosing an item to review. They have everything from outdoor accessories and furniture, to dinnerware and bedding! So much to chose from...something for everyone!
So, for this review I chose to review the Madison's Garden 2-Tiered Ceramic Serving Plate with Stand set. I was really taken in by the colors of this item...it looked really festive, elegant and a perfect addition to any party table!
This set is even more gorgeous in person. The dishes themselves are deep enough to hold a good amount of food and each plate has a lovely flower painted in the center.
I especially love the outer edges of the plates...they have a beautiful raised design that compliments the plates so well. The edges are also beveled around the top, making them look Victorian.
Another elegant touch to this set is the little metal flower attached to the "handle" of the wrought iron stand. It just adds so much flair to the dishes and helps to set off the colors. It is wrapped very securely and so you don't have to worry about bumping it out of place. I love it!

This 2-Tiered Ceramic Serving Plate with Stand set is available from the Winterthur Store for just $29.99. I would say that this would make a wonderful gift for a hostess, friend or someone special in your life. I can think of several people I know who would LOVE to have this given to them...Christmas will be here soon enough! :)

So, in my opinion...the Winterthur Store is my type of place! I love the selection, prices and the setup of the website. It is very easy to navigate and provides accurate details about the offered products. My lovely dish set will be a wonderful gift for someone on MY Christmas list and I am very excited to be able to give such a great gift away!!
