Summer Entertaining With Michael Aram And A Reader Giveaway!

When the folks at Madhouse found out that Cocoon was hosting a Botanical Trunk show, they sent a sampling of Michael Aram's new collection of dinnerware for the event.  With metallic and pearlescent finishes, unique textures and nature inspired shapes and designs, the series proved to be a perfect fit for our plant abundant evening.  Not only did they send enough product samples for the festivities, but also included plenty for giveaways both for our trunk show and for the blog.    Take a look at how we utilized the Olive Branch collection to entertain our guests and see below how to win your own Michael Aram Madhouse collection for your next party.
