It’s the crème de la crème of cast-iron cookware…and it’s going to wind up in the hot little hands (use oven mitts, please!) of one lucky Houston bride-to be. Oui, darlings, c’est vrai! We’re teaming up with legendary French cookware brand Le Creuset for a three-day giveaway contest starting today and ending at 11:59 pm this Wednesday, Jan. 28. One bride who purchases her tickets to Weddings in Houston’s signature I Do! Bridal Soiree, coming to The Corinthian on Thursday, Feb. 12, from 6-9 pm, will win a coveted Le Creuset 5.5-Quart Round French Oven—one of the world’s most-prized wedding-registry items for generations, and an indispensable part of the aspiring cook’s well-stocked kitchen.

To enter: Purchase your all-inclusive tickets to the 2/12 I Do! Bridal Soiree—Houston’s ONLY luxury bridal event, featuring cocktails, gourmet cuisine from Jackson and Company, spectacular tablescapes, straight-off-the-runway bridal couture, $$$ swag bags for each and every bride, and an exclusive array of Houston’s A-list wedding vendors and experts—by 11:59 pm this Wednesday.

The prize: One lucky bride will take home a $280 Le Creuset 5.5-Quart Round French Oven, enameled over cast iron in the perfect shade of Marseille Blue (“something blue” that’s beautiful…and useful, too!). This French-cookware classic, designed for heirloom-quality durability and style, can be used on any stovetop heat source or in the oven, and is ideal for casseroles, stews, soups, chili, braised meats—even for searing a steak or baking a cake!

The winner: Will be announced on Facebook on Friday, Jan. 30, and will be presented with her prize at the Feb. 12 I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. ALL brides who have purchased their I Do! tickets at any time before our Wednesday-night deadline are eligible to win. And one lucky bride will. Shouldn’t it be YOU?

Good luck, loves. Or should we say…bonne chance!

Herend China Wins Bridal Fans at Bering’s

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

We recently had the pleasure of attending the fabulous Herend Artist Event at Bering’s and let’s just say that we are in awe of the impeccable craftsmanship of each collection. Every single piece is handmade AND hand-painted to perfection. Best part? We were able to watch Herend artist Marianna Steigervald in action and ask her a few questions to get the inside scoop on this extraordinary maker of fine–and registry-fabulous–china, available, of course, at Bering’s!

Houston Wedding Blog: What are the origins of Herend?

Marianna Steigervald: There is a lot of history involved with Herend. The first collection was made in the mid-1800s. There was a collection made especially for Queen Victoria, a pattern that is still made today. It is one of our most popular designs sold to date.

HWB: Wow, that is amazing! Which is your personal favorite collection?

MS: My personal favorite is the Miramar collection, which uses an Oriental-inspired pattern. I have always been inspired by Oriental designs because they are so beautiful.

HWB: Which heirloom collections are most popular with brides?

MS: The two most popular collections are ‘Royal Garden’ and ‘Queen Victoria.’ Brides are able to custom design their Herend dinnerware or figurines to their liking.

HWB: What price range can brides expect while shopping from Herend?

MS: Dinnerware sets usually begin from about $300 and can go up to $600 or more depending on the detail of the designs.

HWB: Thanks so much, Marianna!

Have you ever found yourself charmed by a particular trinket, art piece or houseware while traveling? Susan Gravely and her family did—and turned their infatuation with Amalfi-coast dinnerware into a thriving import business. Since 1983, VIETRI has been bringing Italian tabletop pieces to discerning customers in  Canada, Mexico, Europe, South America, Asia, Australia—and right here in good ol’ Houston, Texas, USA (among other states and cities). This Friday, Gravely herself will be at Bering’s, sharing houseware and entertaining advice, and personally signing VIETRI pieces—which, incidentally, have become a huge favorite on Houston gift registries. Pop into the Westheimer store on your lunch break—event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.—for Prosecco and Italian sweets, and enjoy a gift with your VIETRI purchase.
