Summer Wedding Gift Ideas for the Modern Couple
There are a lot of weddings this time of the year. Perhaps, like me, you have noticed that many couples are interested in handmade and unique gifts nowadays besides what is listed on their registry. If that's what you're in search of, let MERCATO help you find the perfect gift for the modern couple in your life!
When we created MERCATO’s line of tableware, our customer’s were pleased to have pretty and artistic handmade dinnerware sets, serving bowls and platters for their own homes. In addition, many started purchasing our tableware for weddings gifts. There have been a lot of destination weddings in Italy too and our customers have been delighted to be able to give thoughtful gifts of authentic "Made in Italy" tableware. It couldn’t be more appropriate!
For weddings many of our collections of tableware make lovely gifts, but the most often purchased wedding gift selection is a large serving bowl from MERCATO’s colorful Fresco collection. The bowls are not only practical (they’ll be great for summertime salads and pasta) but they are beautiful and will be enjoyed on many occasions for years to come.
The Fresco Collection Serving bowl comes in 10 colors…
When you look into the Slate Black Serving Bowl, it is like looking into the sky at night. There are white speckles in the bowl which look like stars. The Fresco serving bowls work well for many dishes. Colorful salads really look vibrant when served in this black bowl.
The Gesso White Serving Bowl has a color similar to the white of antique plaster. This serving bowl has light grayish speckles with a slight hint of periwinkle.
The Verde Dark Green Serving bowl is a deep dark green with mostly black speckles mixed with a few soft ochre yellow speckles.
The red color of the Cotto Rosso Red Serving Bowl reminds us of the deep red color of Hungarian paprika. Inside the bowl are speckles of black and light tan.
The Ochre Yellow Serving Bowl has speckles of cotto rosso red, light grayish speckles with a slight hint of periwinkle, and a bit of white on the inside of the bowl.
On the inside of the Terra Brown Serving Bowl there are speckles of black, cotto rosso red and tan.
Orange is a fun color and the Arancia Orange Serving bowl has speckles of red and soft tan. When you look in this bowl it may remind you of a blood orange. As a matter of fact, a salad with some blood oranges would look wonderful served in this bowl.
The Moss Green Bowl has speckles of dark green, which looks like herbs, as well as speckles of ochre yellow.
This Sage Green Serving Bowl is the same color as the herb. It has some darker green and soft ochre yellow speckles as well.
The Lapis Blue Serving Bowl is a vibrant color with speckles of dark blue and white.
No matter what color you choose, your gift will be special and appreciated. Let us know this is a wedding gift at checkout and we will wrap the bowl in a burlap bag and include a gift card. If you would like us to send it directly to the happy couple, just let us know in the message you would like to included on the card.
