Now that we’re married, it is so dang fun to find reasons to invite friends over and put our fab wedding gifts into action. One of our go-to destinations for entertaining essentials is always Crate & Barrel! I love that their pieces are so interchangeable, so you can collect over time, and still have everything looking fab together. I’m currently loving everything from the Paola Navone collection–black and white is so fresh and chic right now! Can’t you imagine this set up for some alfresco dining? My go to essentials: lots of white! Giant platters for fresh produce or baguettes always come in handy. Piles of white dinnerware makes everything gorg, white black and white napkins keep the vibe elevated yet casual. The black and white rug is super minimal, but full of personality! Love it all from Crate & Barrel’s gift registry. One more thing, if you are unsure about which style you love the most, RSVP to one of Crate & Barrel’s Wedding Parties and see all the items in person! *Crate & Barrel is a sponsor of Grey Likes.
