I’m a southern girl who loves to entertain, especially around the holidays. When Zola approached me and asked if I would be a tastemaker for their site, I was immediately smitten with their product offerings and knew I couldn’t say no. If you haven’t heard about Zola yet, Zola is a unique and completely evolved approach to wedding registries. I was initially introduced to Zola via one of my wedding planners, Stefanie Cove. Stefanie, my guru of everything wedding and event related, knew that Zola and I would get along famously.
I think the bride of now is looking for pieces she can use every day. Our mothers registered for china they only used once a year. I picked items that I thought were classic staple pieces that you would want in your collection for years to come. I love to mix high and low end and I’m never afraid of a pop of color. I am also a sucker for a good serving platter!
Zola’s website technology makes things super easy. You can mix essentials for the kitchen with full-service experiences (like monthly flower delivery or cooking classes). There's even group gifting and cash funds so if all you want is that honeymoon bike tour in Italy or a kitchen renovation, your friends can contribute. What I think is one of the best parts is that you control when gifts arrive. Zola informs you when a gift is bought via your mobile and you decide whether you'd like it sent, held or exchanged for credit.
You don’t have to be getting hitched to appreciate Zola’s offerings. You can check out my entire collection here.
