Princess & the Porcelain Not Just for Brides


We can hardly wait for the Gump’s San Francisco bridal event, Princess and the Porcelain, next Thursday, February 10 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

For brides-to-be or just women and gentlemen with refined taste…or if you’ve never been to a Gump’s occasion, now is the time because this bridal event is the largest of all their famous fanfares.

Gump’s will be showing the finest in tabletop decor (designed by gifted in-house stylists), as well as the best from the Gump’s Wedding and Gift Registry during an elegant cocktail party.

Gump’s specializes in modern yet classic furnishings, accessories, dishes, bedding, jewelry, fabulous gifts and luxury items. This event is for everyone.

“We have unique things that are a little more challenging to find in other stores,” stated Kathleen Mailliard Rende, manager of gift registry.

“Brides like the ‘Juliska’ crystal and dishes. ‘Match’ from Italy is really popular. It’s a combination of pewter and ceramic and it’s very beautiful,” she continued.

“There’s a trend now toward more informal crystal and dishes,” Kathleen explained.

Gift-givers are guaranteed to find something meaningful, or “lifetime objects,” as Kathleen calls them.

There are the softest cashmere blankets in a rainbow of saturated colors, iconic lamps, plush robes and a myriad of gorgeous flatware and tabletop accessories for the discerning shopper. Candles and candleholders make perfect wedding, house-warming or Valentine’s gifts.
