Mimi Thorisson, French cook and author of Old World Italian: Recipes and Secrets from Our Travels in Italy, just launched an exclusive collection at Anthropologie. As a shopping writer, I think it’s what fall tablescape dreams are made of.
The Italian Hours collection is inspired by Italian pottery art. It features 21 products ranging from dinnerware to glassware to table linens that braid a modern touch into some vintage-inspired details. From jacquard dish towels to ceramic tapered candle holders, I think the collection has everything you need to host a dinner party this fall. While techinicalyl not part of the Anthropologie fall collection, I think these rustic pieces are just the thing for the season.
You can take a look at the Mimi Thorisson Italian Hours collection at Anthropologie yourself, but after scouring the whole collection I think I've already found my favorites.
The best of the Mimi Thorisson Anthropologie Collection
You can trust Homes & Gardens.
With the holidays right around the corner, it pays to invest in high-quality flatware and servingware. Mimi's collection evokes fall and cozy evenings in with family. These picks will bring a little elevation to a Thanksgiving meal.
This glass pitcher from the collection would look absolutely stunning as a decor piece on your bar cart or even table centerpiece. The silhouette has a ceramic pitcher silhouette with decaled decorative details throughout to match the collection’s juice glasses.
The Mimi Thorisson Anthropologie collection features several dinnerware options, but we are most obsessed with these soup bowls, which feature the most perfect shape and size for cozy broths and stews this season. We love that the bowls are designed with a decorative edge to showcase the Italian pottery pattern and have an overall vintage stoneware feel.
It wouldn’t be an Italian dinner party without an adorable cocotte. Designed from stoneware with three-dimensional wheat stalk appliques, the 15-ounce cocotte comes in both cream—to match the dishware—and navy which pair beautifully with the collection’s wine-color baking dish. They're perfect for serving soufflé and miniature tiramisù.
While good flatware is always worth having, it's nothing without good tablescaping. Beautiful plates and good food are taken to the next level with a thoughtful layout for your table, elevating a humdrum dinner to an elegant affair.
Create a stunning fall tablescape by layering these cloth napkins into your table settings. The Mimi Thorisson Italian Hours Napkins come in a set of four and are designed from durable cotton with the collection’s signature Italian pottery pattern.
Create a whimsical Italian foliage-inspired centerpiece for your fall dinner party with the Italian Hours Compote Vase from Mimi Thorisson’s Anthropologie collection. Inspired by Italian compote silhouettes, this vase is one of the collection’s biggest show-stoppers—and we love how it ties in the navy blue hues from the pottery design detailing seen on the plates, bowls, and glassware.
