Founder of Sweet Cece’s Launches Tablescape Rental Company

The Occasional Tables

CeCe McCormick, the founder of Sweet CeCe’s frozen yogurt shops, has created a new business that allows customers to rent gorgeous tableware from Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Kate Spade, Pier 1 and more.

Called The Occasional Tables, it will deliver napkins, napkin rings, runners, chargers, dishes, menus and place cards, depending on which collection is ordered. Everything necessary to host a dinner party, luncheon or brunch is available through the website,, and can be delivered to Davidson County and Williamson County homes. Items can also be rented à la carte.

You simply order the settings via the website, they are delivered to you and you return them in the same box. Best part – no clean up! You don’t have to clean the tableware and there’s a bag for soiled napkins.

New designs are constantly added, so there’s something for every type of occasion.

“So often I’ve told a friend, ‘I want to have you over!’ And I never do, because I can’t get it together. By using The Occasional Tables, it makes it doable. We deliver purchases quickly, easily and efficiently. We know people are busy,” McCormick explains in a release.

After the whirlwind success of her brainchild Sweet CeCe’s, McCormick wanted to create a new company to reflect the style of its customers. In 2014, she sold Sweet CeCe’s, which had expanded from the initial shop in the Belle Meade community of Nashville to states and countries beyond Tennessee, including two shops in Dubai, UAE.

“With The Occasional Tables, I want to provide our customers a top-notch experience, as was done with Sweet CeCe’s,” she says. “I want people to feel their anxiety melt away when they entertain.”

There are countless occasions to celebrate – anniversaries, football games, National Oyster Day, whatever – but Americans are lonelier than ever. According to health service firm Cigna, an astounding 46 percent of U.S. adults report sometimes or always feeling lonely. Now with The Occassional Tables, you can entertain without worry or hassle.
