GUIDE by Liz Meihaus
Check out our tips and ideas on table decor, stemware, cutlery and cookware for Thanksgiving, Christmas and right on into the new year.
Do you find yourself arriving right before Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s with a tinge of anxiety about what meals you'll cook up, how you’ll decorate, and what table settings you’ll lay out?
Planning and hosting flawless lunches and dinners at the holidays can be a bit of a balancing act, but armed with the right inspiration and top-notch kitchen and dining essentials, you’ll be sure to enjoy the holidays like never before.
Set a unique holiday table that’ll wow your guests
If you want to step out of your comfort zone this holiday season, go for unexpected patterns, unique colors and distinctive forms when setting your table.
While traditional decor themes at Thanksgiving include fall-inspired colors and patterns, at Christmas most of us tend to select white, red and green. But this year, try thinking bold and unique, with dinnerware sets like Driade tableware set THE WHITE SNOW BESTIARIO DELLA TAVOLA (perfect for Thanksgiving with their animal-themed motifs), THE WHITE SNOW AGADIR collection with its deep blue theme that will go beautifully with silver decorations and accents, and THE WHITE SNOW MOI I set of plates with their striking gold streak decorations.
And don’t forget to lay out beautiful cutlery and glassware that are there to complement your table settings. Paola C’s blown glass wine and water glasses, champagne flutes and liqueur glasses will accompany you from appetizers to dessert to popping open champagne to ring in the new year, while Atelier Crestani offers stunning glass decanters and pitchers for serving up your favorite wines and beverages.
And Mepra’s stainless steel silverware sets in a wide range of colors and finishes will add that truly perfect finishing touch to your holiday table.
Prep your holiday meals in style
A beautiful and tasty meal starts far before it's arranged on a serving platter and placed on your dining table. And quality cookware that’s made to last over time is the key to whipping up your favorite classic dishes for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
