This past Sunday, Andrew and I were invited to participate in the annual Crate + Barrel registry event at the Shops Around Lenox.
There was promise of refreshments and tasty bites, so naturally I was in. Andrew needed a little convincing because, well, there was also shopping involved, which he loathes.
You know how in wedding movies, or rom-coms, when the couple goes to register for items they give you an awesome scanning gun and the couple has a scanning fight trying to out beep each other?
Well I wish I could say that’s what happened, but unfortunately these scanners were a lot less “beep” and more of a dull vibrate.
So we dove right in. Unfortunately, with our lives currently boxed up and in between homes, we don’t really remember exactly what we don’t have. After a quick tour around the store, with many “AH COOL look at THIS”‘s from Andrew, quickly followed by “but when will we ever use this.” and placing it back on the shelf, we found our way to the serving ware!
You can never have too many white plates, bowls and salad plates! So I started scanning. 8 of everything, because dinner parties are in our future, and we need to have enough plates for everyone we have over.
Next we moved into the wine/alcohol entertaining room.
Two big lovers of wine, we could help ourselves from grabbing different glasses and getting a feel for them. Since we are not sommeliers, we decided on 8 all purpose red wine glasses. We barely drink white wine, but I do love a good glass of bubbly, so I may or may not have thrown a few Champagne Coupes on the registry as well.
I quickly got trapped in the holiday section. I can’t wait to own a home to decorate it with giant Christmas wreaths and change out our serve ware to match the season, but since we don’t have permanent residence, and there’s a good chance the majority of their Holiday specialty items won’t be on repeat next year, I decided to ex-nay the Holiday items.
But I did register for some lovely cheese serving utensils.
Isn’t it so frustrating when you’re trying to serve goat cheese but all you have is a butter knife? Honestly, how have I survived this long in my life without a cheese cutting set.
Disclaimer: These shoes are really the cats meow, but after walking around all morning in them, my feet were a little tender. Maybe due to the fact that I never wear 4″ heels, or maybe because there is little to no padding on the ball of your foot, regardless I definitely needed to change shoes après shopping.
Thankfully I had my Talaria Flats in my bag. These have been a life saver multiple times over! Inbetween uncomfortable boots, or heels they have saved my feet too many times to count. I always carry a pair in my purse because they fold up nicely and have a cute little bag to store them in. At $38 a pair, they’re a steal for how useful they are! If my little toes can’t handle the all night dancing at my wedding, there’s a good chance these babies will be making another appearance.
