Julia Hinton of Match Pewter Answers the Ampersand Questionnaire!



Match Pewter is handcrafted in Italy by artisans who are masters of their craft. Match Pewter has been a part of the Ampersand assortment since we opened our doors in 1995. We are very proud of our partnership with such an exceptional brand! 

To celebrate our Annual Gift with Purchase event, Julia Hinton of Match Pewter took the time to answer our Ampersand Questionnaire. The always charming Julia is a close friend of Ampersand and we just love her style. "Hurry up and Relax", and enjoy! 


My signature dish and my signature drink: 

Signature dish - Smoked trout pate

Summer signature drink- Don Julio & Cointreau Margarita

The greatest virtue in a host/hostess:  Make every guest feel special


My biggest entertaining mistake:  Asking my now ex-husband to make a “thank you for coming” toast at what should have been the midpoint of our house warming party….


The historical figure or fictional character I would most enjoy at my dinner table: Pre-trial Oscar Wilde


My entertaining motto:  The only way to enjoy your own party is to have everything prepped and ready well in advance.   David’s family sums it up saying “Hurry up and relax”
