What We’re Loving: Oscar de la Renta’s Dominican Dinnerware


The Dominican designer brings his beloved style to the table

No one, especially fashion lovers, can deny that designer Oscar de la Renta’s style is full of flair. An import from the Dominican Republic, this impeccably sharp man knows how to incorporate his Latin roots into his runway looks, creating best-dressed celebrities and stunning brides year-round.

Now, the 80-year-old designer is making a change — he’s channeling his Dominican side more than ever, revamping his home line with a collection that will be representative of his native country with new prints, colors, and images.

The line will include dinnerware, lamps, games, frames, and other home décor items reflecting the designer’s life on the island. Check out this really neat addition — de la Renta is including a Latin staple in his collection: dominoes for those long games after dinner.

Amy & Steve are the kind of couple you meet and instantly adore. Amy with her sweet & spunky personality, and Steve with his quiet but loving demeanor – they’re the perfect complement to one another. Admittedly, Amy was the one to win us over. After all, it was she who contacted us and did the tasting with us but she never neglected to fill us in on her then fiancé–so much so that we felt like we already knew him.

Amy came to us based on a referral by a chef for whom our very own chef used to work. She described herself as a ‘foodie’ from the South with a few important requests. First, she absolutely had to have her home state of Virginia’s ‘unofficial’ signature sandwich incorporated into her reception we gladly accepted the challenge of miniaturizing her beloved ham biscuit to be passed as a late-night snack. Secondly, she informed us that she wanted her mother and mother-in-law to be the ones to stock the sweets table with traditional family recipes. Finally, she wanted a sophisticated menu that would give her guests the experience of eating at a fine-dining restaurant. To top it all, the vision she described for her wedding was so dreamy, we knew she was the client for us!

The couple worked with Estera Events and Fleur to bring their vision of ‘vintage romance meets modern love’ to life. We love how all of the pieces came together so perfectly, from the custom linens to the mismatched vintage dinnerware to the milk glass, mercury, and crystal vases housing glorious garden blooms — each element gave us something to swoon over.

Written in the Cards: Escort cards were pinned to a board that was created by Estera Events to mimic the couple’s invitations. Amy created her own guest book for guests to write their wishes for the couple. She also found vintage playing cards at a relative’s home and decided to cleverly use them as table names. The couple sat at a sweetheart table called ‘Sassy Squirrel’, a nod to Amy’s personality.

In Full Bloom:The beautiful centerpieces, reminiscent of florals you’d find on vintage dinnerware, were all created by Fleur . Vintage dinnerware was provided by Plate Vintage Rentals .

Modern Room Meets Vintage Romance:We transformed Room 1520 into an intimate dining room using round tables. Chiavari chairs from Tablescapes Party Rentals and custom table linens from Private Label Linens accompanied each table. Beautiful menu cards created by Kern & Ink Design were set atop a vintage charger for each guest.

The Right Bite: Caprese Pipettes were served during cocktail hour. The bride’s ham biscuits, lovingly dubbed ‘Virginia Bites’, were served as late-night snacks, and the family sweet station was open for guests to enjoy during dancing.
