This is one of our favorite times of year at the studio because we are so busy making beautiful gifts for Moms. Much of our design is about exquisite details, and the one-of-a-kind quality of each piece makes it the perfect way to say, "You're pretty special to me!" We've selected some of our favorite ways to pamper our mothers.
We love the versatility of these smaller glass vases. You can put a single stem in them, use them on your vanity for beauty tools, or on your desk for pens. We like to both mix patterns or create a uniform set. We prefer to keep them in the same color family of gold or silver.
No explanation needed for how to use these cocktail glasses, only to say that a drink always tastes better in a beautiful glass! Frosted base with a hand-gilded band on the bottom. 4 glasses make the perfect set. Shown here on our Rectangle Tray in Zig Zag.
This 10-inch sleek contemporary vase in Roadz design is an elegant look that only needs a few stems to make its statement. One of our biggest selling designs and available in all colors.
Grouping Shapes & Sizes
This is one of our favorite things to do with our glass vases and our customers' opportunity to get creative and put together their unique style. We use these everywhere in the home! Be sure to read last Mother's Day gift idea post on putting together the perfect vanity tray.
We hope you found some inspiration today! As always, call us at the studio if you need some guidance—this is what we LOVE to do, especially for Moms!

We just returned from the Atlanta Gift Show and as always, it was wonderful to see so many of our friends and customers. Getting out of the studio infuses us with energy and enthusiasm. We get to talk design and show our clients all the different ways our pieces create a unique and exquisite home decor style.
Our eyes and ears are wide open at these gift shows because you can really get the pulse of what's coming and going in home decor trends. It helps inform our design inspiration to know what the consumers are excited about. There was a very clear moving away from rustic farmhouse and industrial styles that have dominated shows in years past. Here's what we found our customers are loving now in home accent designs:
1. Metallics are hot
Still! The passion for metallics hasn't waned at all. Customers want shiny beautiful bling around the home and the most popular color continues to be gold. Whether it's a beautifully designed tablescape, place settings for a special dinner party, or accent pieces in your living room, we have you covered here.
2. Artisan handcrafted pieces made in America.
Everyone loves a story behind a piece. They want to know who the designer is and how the piece was made because it feels more personal to them and their home becomes distinctively curated. Supporting artists local to the US is a plus. Here's a look into artisan handcrafting that happens everyday with the Childs Studio gilding process.
3. Color for Spring
Customers like to change their color palettes around the holidays and the seasons, and Spring always brings requests for GREEN. It's fresh and bright and goes beautifully with the fresh flowers abundant in those months. We feature two popular green-colored metallics, Moss and Variegated Green, shown here on our 6-inch Bubble Glass Bowl.
We'd love to hear from you on your favorite Spring home accent trend! Let us know in the comments or shoot us an email. As always, we make every piece custom-to-order so if you don't see a piece in a color or pattern you want, just ask us!
