Crockery of the Month – May 19

This month’s crockery of the month is a set of glasses that you will have seen plenty of here at Whitehouse. Though our crockery of the month posts have been aboutlesser-known items in the past, we thought we’d use this month to show off the item that seems to have eclipsed all others in its popularity. It has a gold rim, comes in a champagne flute, red and white wine glass and tumbler, it has a spiralled stem and beautifully sleek shape. Any clue what it is? I guess we’ll tell you.

This month’s is…Cara!

If you follow Whitehouse on any kind of social stream you will have seen this beautiful set a multitude of times. Not only do they work effortlessly in eccentric, grand weddings, but they also steal the limelight in close, intimate occasions. Of course, gold has been a bride favourite for a long time now, but we believe it is Cara’s simplicity that also gives it an edge over other products. We have hundreds of photos from shoots, weddings and events that showcase Cara in the most exquisite situations; shining on its own or creating its own subtle aura within the midst of a larger scene. Either way, we can see why it has stolen the hearts of many brides and grooms alike, which is why we thought it was time to compile some of the best photos together to create a Cara portfolio for you all to enjoy. For each set, we’ve looked at the style of the photos, the colours that it has been matched with and our favourite piece of styling, just to give you an insight into how us Whitehouse folk look at these pictures.

So there we have Cara, working its magic in all the best scenarios. Interestingly, though they are often included in different colour schemes, they are paired with many of the same items. We love the Cara and the Scarlett matched together, since their gold rims make sense in the same situation, however we would highly recommend thinking outside the box, trying Cara with different colours and styles to see for yourself how it can work in [literally] any setting. To see more Cara, and hopefully a few other pieces from Whitehouse, follow us on all of our social media pages.
