And this year, I'll have lots of new things to bring to the table, thanks to the story I produced for the current issue of Garden & Gun about both pretty tabletop goods and delicious mail-order Southern foods. Top of my list? The Waterford champagne coupes shown below, which serve up autumnal sparkling cider beautifully. Also a little crazy for the North Carolina-made kudzu bread basket (yes it's made out of kudzu vines) and the new peacock-y blue/green colorway of the pitcher from Orbix Hot Glass in Alabama.
