  • Consider stacking pedestal cake plates and various compotes to serve hors d'oeuvres. This maximizes surface space and adds multi levels for display.

  • Group green, red and crystal glass tumblers for a beautiful centerpiece. Fill with fresh pine or flowers. Or for a practical use: fill each tumbler with flatware rolled in a crisp linen or holiday printed napkin.

  • Decorate with vintage ornaments and mid-century christmas figurines. Layer glass bulbs and twinkle lights in antique glass pitchers or vases. Use a vintage ceramic sleigh, angel or santa figurine as a cake topper.

  • Arrange cookies on Currier and Ives or Blue Willow platters.

  • Place vintage ecru or white doilies on richly colored table cloths for an old-fashioned holiday look.

Start a new tradition or continue beloved traditions with fun and fancy serving pieces. Your family and friends will feel special.
