One of the things I love best about Mariposa Brillante is the completeness of their collections. Mariposa collections include every type of serving ware you've ever heard of, and plenty you've never heard of before. Wine coasters and candle snuffers are just the beginning. Their collections also include canape plates, ice cream servers and relish dishes. If you can imagine it, Mariposa has a way to serve it.

Building Your Mariposa Brillante Collection

Their collections are so thorough that a person could spend a lifetime building a complete set. For this reason, it's best to give some thought to which collection you love best. Although you may only ask for five or six pieces of the Mariposa Harvest collection or Palms collection for your wedding, you'll be adding to it, piece by piece, for decades to come.

Don't begin a collection just because you love one or two of the pieces. For instance, you may end up falling in love with the fabulous sand bucket ice cream server from Mariposa's Shells & Seaside collection. Do you love the rest of the collection just as much? If not, you may want to stick with something more subdued, like the String of Pearls collection. After all, one piece of serving ware does not a collection make.

This is wonderful metalware to put on display. Each piece of handmade Mariposa serveware is like a piece of art. If you have enough space in your dining room, I recommend displaying your favorite pieces of Mariposa on your sideboard.
