Getting the table dressed for the holidays can sometimes start off as an overwhelming assignment. Place cards, napkin rings…formal or casual flatware sets. When is it too much and why does it all have to be overly thematic for the occasion? As novel, lovely and prized as our vintage / family holiday-specific sets are, they can be a tad limited in the number of times they  make it onto the table.

As in once. They come out of hiding once a year.

Your holidays don’t have to be about turkey or evergreen splattered china. Why not start building your multi-use design arsenal that will carry you from November all the way through January! That’s right – gorgeous pieces that you could  use on your table from fall through the new year with glitz, class and still an abundant feeling of celebration.

Gold, white, wood and perfect..Heck, you’re going to want to use these glams for every occasion regardless of holiday-timing. I’m sensing some real year round potential here with these stunning staples. I’m also sensing the need to go cut up my credit card to slow me down from buying all of these at once.

Oopsie…too late!


Now that the table is set, let’s start obsessing over centerpieces….gulp.
