Festive Serving Dishes for the Holidays
Christmas is the time for family, friends and celebrations!
I really enjoy entertaining and the holiday season is always my favorite time of the year to entertain. I start decorating the day after Thanksgiving and always look forward to getting out my Christmas dishes and serving pieces.
We usually have a big Christmas party at our house each year for all of our friends and on Christmas day I serve brunch in the morning for my husbands side of the family and finger foods in the afternoon and evening for my side of the family. Our children and grandchildren all arrive from out of town so we have a house full of people. It is a very fun and festive time of the year.
In this lens I will share some of my favorite dishes and serving pieces and provide links to my lenses for my brunch menu and some easy appetizers.
Have a Wonderful Christmas Season!

Christmas Season Dinnerware - classic winterberry pattern
These are the dishes that I use each year from the day after Thanksgiving till about the 1st of February. I love this design because it has a winter design that really works well throughout the season. It has a touch of red berries and holly that can add to the Christmas mood but also is subdued enough to work all winter long.
Christmas Cookie Platter - serve special Christmas cookies
I love colorful platters to serve my Christmas cookies. I start baking my cookies in early November and store them in the freezer. Whenever guests are arriving I take out an assortment of home baked cookies and serve them on a Christmas platter.
I love this design with the green edges and the colorful tree.
Santa Snack Bowl - great bowl for holiday goodies
I can see this bowl full of an assortment of nuts with perhaps a few red and green candies. A wonderful bowl to serve all of your holiday goodies.
Christmas Tree Design Dinnerware
I've seen this design in the stores and always thought it was a very nice Christmas design. I love the green trees and the classic look.
Christmas Ornament Candy Dish - a dish for sweets
This dish would be great filled with homemade fudge. I love crystal dishes they go with everything and add a touch of class.
Cheerful Christmas Mugs - great for hot cider or chocolate
When your guests arrive on a cold winters day a nice hot cup of cider or chocolate would be welcome. These great Christmas mugs will add to the festive atmosphere as you serve your hot drinks.
Beautiful Lenox Christmas Candy Dish - classic elegance
Lenox makes beautiful dishes and this candy dish is no exception. Beautiful in it's simplicity.
Winterberry Chip and Dip - party fare for the holidays
I have a chip and dip set like this and it always comes in handy during the holidays. I often use it to serve spinach dip and vegetables.
Salad Plates or Dessert Plates - winter holiday dishes
These colorful red and white plates are listed for salads, but I think they would make wonderful dessert plates.
Snowman Relish Dish
The perfect dish for relishes. I can also see it used for different nuts and candies!
versatile dish could have so many uses
