I grew up with a mother who can throw down a serious appetizer spread. Thanks to the gorgeous serveware and cookware from Pacific Merchants, I can finally keep up with her.

Pacific Merchants GiveawayWhat makes my mom’s parties something special isn’t just the eats, though you’ll find plenty of family members face-planting in her legendary shrimp dip—it’s the way she serves them. Every dish is arranged on a lovely dish or set in just the right bowl, something I envied when I went to throw my first party and realized I only had Tupperware lids and mixing bowls to function as my serveware.

Over time, I’ve slowly and thoughtfully began collecting serving pieces, and Pacific Merchants Trading Company makes some of my favorites. I was immediately drawn to their gorgeous line of hand carved acacia wood pieces, which makes even the most simple of dishes look magazine worthy. I have a set of plates, a chopping/serving board, and a serving plate, and I’ve been so happy with each of them.

For those who are into canning (or who enjoy drinking from mason jars), Pacific Merchants offers a wide, super cute selection from Kilner, a 150 year old brand of British canning jars, bottles and accessories. Just browsing the site will lead to other fun finds too. Ridiculously adorable measuring cups? Don’t mind if I do.

Pacific Merchants is offering one lucky reader a $100 gift card to put towards the items of her/his choice, and I have a feeling that with so many wonderful options available, it’s going to be hard for the winner to choose!

**Giveaway ended. Congrats to the winner and thank you to all!**

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some cute measuring cups to buy.
