    Top Home Decor Items to Add to Your Wedding Registry
    The B Blog

    Previously, we told you about the top kitchen items to add to your wedding registry. From specialty knives to cookware and bakeware, we gave you tips to build the registry (and the kitchen) of your dreams. The wedding industry has experienced a nearly unprecedented boom in the past couple of years, and we want to make sure every new couple builds the perfect wedding registry for their special day. 

    Today, we’re stepping out of the kitchen to talk about the best home decor items for your wedding registry. From tableware to home decor and scents, we’ll walk you through all of the things you’ll need to start your married life on the right foot.  

    Spruce up your new place with some of these decorative items on your registry

    If you’re getting married, you’ve probably heard of a wedding registry. For those who haven’t, a wedding registry is a curated list that allows engaged couples to pick the items they’d like to receive as wedding gifts. Guests can browse this list and choose the gifts they’d like to give. Registries make it easier to ensure guests buy the gifts that a couple really wants, and they also help to avoid duplicate items. 

    Today, wedding planning sites like Zola, The Knot, and WithJoy make creating your registry easier than ever. You can choose from a variety of brands (including independently owned businesses like Blackstone’s with e-commerce websites) from the comfort of your smart device, and guests can buy directly from the registry itself. With so many options at your fingertips, it can be overwhelming for couples to narrow down the perfect items for them. That’s why we’ve created this curated list to help you cover all of your bases.

    When you were a kid, your bedroom likely served as a unique expression of your personality. As you got older and moved out on your own, your space likely evolved with you. Maybe you started experimenting with new types of decor, bought dishware that displayed your individual taste, or decked your home out in artwork and eccentric pots and vases. As you move into this new era, you and your partner have an opportunity to build a home that reflects your distinctive partnership, and your wedding registry is the perfect place to get started. Here are some of the our top home decor picks for your registry include: 

    1. For Your Table

    You’re building a home together, so why not build your own unique collection of dishes, glasses, and serveware? Be sure to include common dinnerware, like plates, bowls, and flatware, in addition to accessories, like placemats, napkins, and napkin holders. In addition to dinnerware, you’ll also want to stock your registry with glasses and serveware, like trays, platters, utensils, and bowls

    2. For Your Bar

    If you’re somebody who partakes in the occasional cocktail or glass of wine, your wedding registry is the perfect opportunity to stock your bar with fancy glasses and gadgets. For cocktail lovers, this can mean adding bar tools like decanters, shakers, ice cube trays, muddlers, and measuring equipment into your registry. For our wine connoisseurs, we recommend adding things like decanters, bottle stoppers, wine chillers, pour spouts, and corkscrews. And let’s not forget to add fancy wine and cocktail glasses to fit your individual needs.

    Spencer Peterman Spalted Bowl

    Spencer Peterman hand crafts unique bowls that are a beautiful addition to any table. They’re made from fallen local trees in Western Massachusetts that create distinct and beautiful designs in their bowls.

    3. To Accent Your Home

    The easiest way to make a house feel like a home is to add your own unique decor and accents. We recommend using your registry as an opportunity to stock up on unique decor that reflects you and your partner’s combined style. This can include things like artwork and frames that display fond memories and reflect your taste. Houston Llew Spiritiles are some of our (and our customers’) favorite pieces of home decor. These copper and enamel art blocks can be hung on a wall or placed on a bookshelf to commemorate and celebrate the uplifting moments in life. 

    If you struggle with clutter, baskets are another stylish and functional addition to clean up your space and add a nice pop of color. We also recommend adding pillows, blankets, and lighting that will help to make your home feel extra cozy. If you have a green thumb, maybe include vases to make a home for new plants. 

    4. To Make Your Home Smell Fresh

    Have you ever noticed that peoples’ homes have their own unique smell? When you get married, you and your partner will inevitably have a smell that is unique to the two of you, and candles, diffusers, and bath accessories can ensure that your combined scent is a good one. Add some of your favorite scented products to your wedding registry to get started right away. 

    In addition to scented candles, specialty taper, votive, and tea candles – and unique candle holders – serve as excellent accents to brighten up your home. We also recommend stocking your registry with some of your favorite soaps and lotions to spruce up your bathroom.

    Caspari Lacquer Tray

    Caspari’s Lacquer Trays are beautiful and functional pieces to add to your wedding registry.

    Shop Small for a Unique Wedding Registry

    When creating your wedding registry, it can be easy to immediately jump to big box stores. While they might have the basics, these stores often lack the distinctive touch that comes from shopping with smaller businesses. Registering with local stores is a great way to invest in your community and to find unique items that come from nearby areas. 

    Blackstone’s of Beacon Hill is a small, local Boston store that offers wedding registry services. We offer a highly curated collection of kitchenware, gifts, home decor, and New England’s largest selection of fine knives that is perfect for any registry. What’s more, many of our vendors are local to New England, giving our products a personal touch that you can’t find anywhere else. You can find us on popular sites like the Knot, WithJoy, and Zola. 

    Stop into our store at 40 Charles Street in Boston’s historic Beacon Hill to chat with our staff about wedding registry options. We’ll walk you through the process and give you a preview of our inventory. Otherwise, visit the Blackstone’s of Beacon Hill website to browse our inventory and view our gift registry page.
