This week, my table is filled with Christmas berries! I adore Christmas plates. I collected sets of 4 salad plates for years to entertain with, host cookie exchanges, or just to decorate. I bought these salad plates the year Adrian, now 5, was born. They have 2007 on the back, so I know they are his. He even went shopping with me, after Christmas, probably 75% off. I have a couple small serving bowls and a cream and sugar to match.
My tip--Christmas traditional patterns are so very easy to mix and match, so don't fret if you can't find a set of 12. Red berries and green poinsettias look beautiful when tied together...the napkins, the plates, the serving pieces, the candles...all have elements of both.
My snowmen collection abides happily around the house...
Merry Christmas! From my family of boys to you!
