I am a freelance Food Stylist by trade, and in 2019, COVID hit my industry pretty hard. Before food I was a fashion stylist for about 10 years in Dallas. I left fashion, went to culinary school and worked my butt off to reach my goal as a well-respected food stylist. I have been hanging around on set, at shoots, studios, being paid to be creative and make all kinds of things beautiful for almost 20 years.

Fast forward to 2020 and we all just had to figure it out, didn’t we? I was selling china on Etsy: a bowl, a gravy boat here and there—nothing like I do now.  The idea to mix pieces and create curated sets came to me in about March of 2020. By the end of May, I would say I was really getting the hang of it. I was selling my curated sets on Facebook Marketplace and I was just learning as I went.


Food styling was still slow, but I worked when I could since I was freelance. By that August, I decided I would put as much effort into curating and selling china as I did into becoming a food stylist. By that September 2020, I started my Facebook group Table Heirloom with about 50 people. I made a lot of mistakes, but I took them all in stride and learned from them. If something didn’t work, I changed it. I was fine making mistakes as long as I didn’t keep making the same ones over and over.


Now it’s a little over a year later, and I’m at 2,500 group members!


As someone who takes a lot of pride in what I do, being a food stylist always felt very prestigious to me. But I will tell you that I get more fulfillment and joy, curating these sets and helping my clients than I ever thought possible.

Houma, Louisiana. I check every day to see what Beth has created for the day. She is the “Mistress of China” curating!! 

Beth helped me to own a complete 12 place setting of fabulous china, complete with serving pieces. Everything arrived in impeccable condition. I look forward to my next purchase from Table Heirloom!

Alexandria, Virginia. Beth at Table Heirloom is a true joy to work with. I’ve purchased 4 times from her and every experience was exceptional. She worked with me on a soup set I was on the fence about and she found me a different napkin option that I absolutely adored which changed the set for me from just pretty to wow, must have! I've purchased 3 sets and a cake plate from her and plan on buying more. She constantly has "new" vintage inventory and does an incredible job of mixing different patterns into cohesively creative china collections. She is an artiste, curator extraordinaire, and very customer service oriented. She finds new homes for vintage treasures where they can be enjoyed again for many years to come. The packing is impeccable and always arrives safely.
