Trisha Yearwood Debuts Gwendolyn Dinnerware Collection at Williams Sonoma, Inspired By Her Late Mom
Attention Trisha Yearwood fans! The country artist, Food Network cooking show host, and cookbook author is teaming up with Williams Sonoma to release a gorgeous line of tablewares.
The Trisha Yearwood Gwendolyn Dinnerware Collection of dinner plates, platters, cake stands, and more, was inspired by Yearwood's mom, Gwendolyn, a teacher who took on a side gig as a wedding planner and cake decorator. Over the years, Gwendolyn sketched detailed icing designs for the cakes she made, and the Williams Sonoma team was able to incorporate elements from these drawings into the new serving and dinnerware collection that bears her namesake. All pieces in the new line are embossed glazed stoneware with a hand-painted patina, and the bottom of each piece features a stamp of Gwendolyn's signature.
"I am so very proud of this collaboration with Williams Sonoma. The Gwendolyn collection is the perfect representation of my mom — elegant, classy, and timeless," said Yearwood in a Williams Sonoma press release. "I couldn't be more excited to honor her memory in this way."
"Our customers have been able to experience and embrace everything from Trisha Yearwood's signature cocktail mixes and coffee blends to her favorite Thanksgiving recipes as our successful collaboration has evolved over the years," said Williams Sonoma President, Ryan Ross, in the same media statement. "Trisha's new Gwendolyn tabletop collection showcases our passion for creating authentic products that our customers love." (P.S.
