Easter Entertaining at Home with Moyarta

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Easter is always such a fun and happy time to entertain at home. Chocolate eggs, a delicious menu of roast lamb with early Autumn vegetables, egg hunts in the garden and happy family times. Easter brings plenty of colour inspiration for setting a beautiful table as there are so many coloured eggs and other decorations to be found at this time of year.

We love planning and decorating a beautiful table for entertaining at home and wanted to share with you some photos as a little bit of inspiration for your Easter entertaining.

We chose bright shades of pink for our theme and carried this across the table through the use of pink limogue plates and beautiful Le Jacquard Francais linens. We added our little Moyarta jeweled napkin rings and filled ceramic bunnies with a couple of mini pale pink eggs.

Our centerpieces on the table were antique silver baskets filled with hand dyed eggs in lovely shades of pink. We used little sprigs of fresh herbs from the garden in the dying process to make patterns on our eggs and to turn each one into a little art creation of its own.

We love to mix in vintage pieces with new ones on the table and chose pale pink American vintage wine glasses by Fostoria and a beautiful pale pink Vaseline glass bowl with a frilled edge that held our freshly baked hot cross buns when they came out of the oven.

We carried our pink theme across the dining room and created a pink Easter display to sit on our sideboard. We used different types of flowers in small vases as well as little dishes of eggs in coordinating shades. The pink vase is again an American vintage piece made by Fenton.

To finish off our gorgeous Easter lunch (and because we still hadn’t had enough chocolate of course!) we had luscious double layer chocolate ganache cake with sparkly pink eggs on top. 

Happy Easter entertaining everyone from all of us at Moyarta.

Moyarta at Life Instyle Sydney 2013

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

The Life Instyle is a unique trade only event that enables companies like Moyarta to showcase their designs to a wide range of retail buyers, design professionals and lifestyle media journalists.  Held twice a year, the organizers of the show describe Life Instyle as follows.  Life Instyle is a unique, trade only event dedicated to showcasing products that demonstrate creative excellence and design within a beautiful shopping environment.

Only our second time at the fair, Moyarta participated recently in the Sydney 2013 Life Instyle Fair held in the Royal Hall of Industries and the Horden Pavilion. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet with existing and new customers as well as media and design professionals. As the fair is a trade only event, we thought we would share some photos with our blog readers of our exhibit and what it’s all about.


We look forward to following up with all the new people we met during the fair and thank you to everyone who stopped by to look at our collections and chat with us about what they were doing and what they were looking for at the fair.

We are already looking forward to the next fair; Life Instyle Melbourne to be held in August and to launching our new look exhibit for the show.

Afternoon luncheon in a sunny courtyard: gorgeous Moyarta linen and accessories

Monday, July 23, 2012


We recently organized a small event in a gorgeous Sydney courtyard for a sunny afternoon luncheon. The table theme or tablescape was built around our Moyarta fern linens and coordinating green accessories.


We wanted to share some of the photos from the shoot with our readers.


We used a combination of different types of green glassware to coordinate with our fern embroidered dinner napkins, green woven placemats and matching jewel flower napkin rings


   


The little green sherbert glasses in the center of each place setting are Ameriacn vintage Federal glass. The darker green champagne flutes are new and we felt the contrasting shades of green looked fabulous on the table and highlighted the shading of greens in the embroidery of the napkins.

Autumn Entertaining - using seasonal produce as inspiration for the perfect table.

Sunday, May 27, 2012
Inspired by our years of living in America’s North East, surrounded by the spectacular colours of the fall, we decided to put together some ideas for seasonal Autumn entertaining not only for our own enjoyment but as inspiration for our Moyarta readers as well. A beautifully decorated table using the fall colour pallet along with a wonderfully tasty and aromatic menu. Now as Autumn is upon us here in Australia and the weather is getting colder, it’s the perfect time to be setting an Autumn inspired table, creating a wonderful seasonal menu and inviting friends and family around for a cosy harvest feast.


Vermont foliage in the fall.

There’s something very satisfying about going to a local farmers market or even visiting a farm or orchard and picking out the freshest produce, directly from the grower in order to create a special seasonal menu.  Throughout the North East during the fall, roadside markets selling pumpkins and squash can be found everywhere as the country gets ready to decorate for Halloween and Thanksgiving.


Roadside farmers market in Vermont, USA.

We are fortunate to be close to the wonderful Northside Produce Market here in Sydney that is held on the third Saturday of every month.  On our recent visit, we sourced fresh fruits and vegetables, cheeses, wines, meat, flowers and eggs all directly from growers all over NSW.  Totally inspired by what we found, we created our beautifully fragrant Autumn Butternut Squash and Apple Soup (contact us for the recipe).



We also recently found out about the wonderful Locavore fresh produce guides.  The guide has been produced for Victoria, with the NSW version coming in Spring 2012.  The guide is a wonderful resource for sourcing seasonal produce directly from growers and should provide plenty of inspiration for seasonal cooking: http://www.locavored.com/field-guides/

Next on the list was creating our Autumn table using accessories in all the colours of the fall.  Here’s a picture of our table.  We used linen and accessories in varying shades of orange, green and gold.



We’ve put together an inspiration board for putting together an Autumn table using the same colour pallet.  Our board uses coloured linens from Sferra, beautiful china and glassware from some of the world’s finest brands as well as accessories available from Moyarta.

Setting The Christmas Table at Lindesay House using Moyarta’s Accessories

Thursday, November 24, 2011
Apart from the dazzling array of Christmas gifts, antiques and décor on display at the annual Lindesay Christmas Fair, one of the key attractions each year is the Lindesay Christmas table.

Each year, the dining table in the large red, formal dining room is styled by National Trust Committee member and stylist extraordinaire, Annette Blinco.
This year, Moyarta were delighted to participate in the fair and thrilled to be asked to include our accessories on the dining table.

Set in spectacular tones of teal and aqua, the table was a focal point of the fair and a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our Moyarta accessories.

Antique silverware and glassware glistened on the table all of which was for sale through Showcase Antiques, one of the antique vendors exhibiting at the fair. We were most tempted by the little Victorian teal coloured cocktail glasses  on the table, not to mention the Sterling Silver Kings Pattern flatware service.

We would like to thank Annette for including our accessories on the Christmas table in such a stunning, formal dining room.

We are already looking forward to participating in the fair again next year and to assisting with accessorizing the table again in 2012.

A little bird told us that the 2012 table is going to be pale pink and is sure to be just as gorgeous as this year’s table.
