I am authentically honored to be joining MacKenzie-Childs’ as one of their 2023 ambassadors. Being able to style and share MacKenzie-Childs’ iconic home decor accessories with you here is just, well, pie-in-the-sky kind of stuff.
*This post was written in collaboration with MacKenzie-Childs but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Summer Dessert with MacKenzie-Childs Sterling Check Around the Fire Pit
Sterling Check Enamel Collection
The MacKenzie-Childs’ Sterling Check is a more neutral, fresh take on the most iconic pattern, Courtly Check. The muted silver of the checks is accented with subtle yellow and blue painted pull-throughs.

What’s for Summer Dessert?
First up is lemon cake!
One of my favorite cakes, made right here in town by Mother Myrick’s,
is the infamous Lemon LuLu cake, also available online.
I like to order the 6 Individual Mini Lemon Lulu Cakes too.
Aren’t they the perfect bite-size cakes? And just look at these delicacies now displayed on MacKenzie-Childs’ Sterling Check appetizer plates. Super cute!

Pulling out the Blues and Yellows in the Sterling Check
The large Sterling Check cake stand is absolutely fabulous, too.
It fits the large yellow Lemon LuLu cake beautifully! Also, pulling out the yellows woven throughout this neutral checkered design.
All the enamel pieces in this collection are ideal for outdoor summer celebrations.
A bouquet of lilacs and bleeding hearts picked from our backyard work charmingly in MacKenzie-Childs’ Sterling Check medium enamel, Practical Pitcher.
And can we talk about these large salt and pepper shakers?
Aren’t they absolutely rad, haha? My husband loves them!
Top off your summer festivities with MacKenzie-Childs’ matching Sterling Check Enamel Wine Cooler too.

Summer Dessert with MacKenzie-Childs Sterling Check on the Porch
Now let’s head up to the porch for a second summer dessert with our friends over at MacKenzie-Childs.
The days are getting warmer here, so enjoying dessert on the porch will be a bit cooler.
The Patriotic summer holidays are upon us so a little red, white, and blue is in order for hosting this Sterling Check collection.
I paired the Sterling Check appetizer plates on our porch table with a traditional red and white check placemat, dark blue glassware, and floral napkins.
We’ll start off with some fresh watermelon and Maine blueberries. Accompanied by my mother’s sterling silver flatware.
Add in a summer bouquet of colorful flowers highlighted in MacKenzie Childs’ Sterling Check wine cooler on top of their fabulous large pedestal platter. It all makes for an ideal heightened summer table centerpiece.
Add a delicious cake as the main summer dessert course, and light a couple of candles for ambiance.
The Sterling Check medium pitcher accompanies the table with fresh water on the side.
The MacKenzie-Childs’ Sterling Check Enamelware works so beautifully on our porch table and on evenings enjoyed around the fire pit. We just love this collection and hope you do too!
