Entertaining Ideas

4 Takes On The Holiday Table

Christmas is right around the corner! And if you’ve stumbled upon this blog, chances are you’re hosting this holiday—and looking for inspiration to make it a meal to remember. If you’re struggling with where to start, we’ve simplified your search with four festive ideas for your holiday table based on type of meal and time of day. We hope it inspires a table they’ll talk about for years to come! 

01
A Casual Breakfast Buffet


If you’re hosting guests or girlfriends before a long day of festivities, fuel their appetite for fun and set the tone for a fabulous day with a casual—but so cute—breakfast buffet. Keep it laid back with our Balsam Lane dinnerware. With frozen scenes that aren’t strictly holiday, we love this look for any occasion this winter—before, during, or after the big day. Portola flatware in gold adds a touch of glam, while our new French Perle pitcher and Tuscany Classics Stackables blend utility with artistry for an uncomplicated yet elegant touch.
 

02
A Whimsical Brunch


Whether for kids or just the young at heart, we love this jovial tablescape with a very familiar theme—the Grinch, of course! With plenty of Grinchmas goodies on display, your playful presentation will be the talk of the table. Adding illuminated elements like our Radiant Lit Jewel Tone Tree and Pine Tree figurals puts a twinkle in the eye while making spirits bright. You’re not stealing Christmas with this Who-ville-inspired tablescape—you’re making it spectacular.

03
A Festive Dinner Party


Elevated, easy…and oh-so pretty. Perfect for a dinner party with your chosen family (think Friendsgiving meets Christmas), this tablescape was created with our new French Perle Berry dinnerware. Its charming ruffles and artisanal holly designs speak to the season softly. Layer in evergreen branches and gleaming Portola flatware (plus enough wine glasses for a toast to the host), and you have a tablescape as inviting, cool, and calming as your best friends.
 

04
Classic Christmas Dinner


For your family’s big feast, we invite you to take merry to the max with our long-loved Holiday dinnerware. With a pattern introduced nearly 50 years ago, this dinnerware is a Christmas classic that’s here to stay. Gold Portola flatware coordinates beautifully with the gold-detailed designs, while stemless wine glasses don’t compete with the height of a traditional bouquet centerpiece. For a touch of modernity in this classic Christmas scene, we opted for a Facets vase bursting with evergreen branches and pops of red florals. Finally, carefully selected Christmas figurines add an extra sprinkle of joy to your favorite family gathering.
