With its classic Holly Leaf and Berry design, Winterberry Dinnerware by Pfaltzgraff, has been hosting holiday dinners for over 20 years, making it a perennial favorite at the table.
Prior to blogging, I spent half my life in retail. . .put in those terms, that sounds depressing :) Buying inventory involves working six months to a year in advance of the current season so I’m indoctrinated!
If seeing Christmas decorations or merchandise prior to Thanksgiving or November makes you cranky, I apologize in advance :)
Winterberry’s square plates have rounded corners, allowing them to be mixed and matched with round plates that are also available. Chargers are layered~ rattan to marry the jute runner and carved white chargers used before, here, to complement the sculpted lines of the dinnerware.
I cut some greenery to add to an artificial garland for the table, along with some other natural elements~ apples, pine cones, a few nuts to sprinkle in and added a holly and berry burlap ribbon~ helping fill and camouflage some of the less-than-realistic parts of the garland.
If you have access to Leland Cypress, it’s an ideal evergreen to use for Christmas decorating. While it doesn’t have the fragrance of pine, fir, or cedar, it also doesn’t leave a sticky, sappy residue behind so it’s perfect for adding to your mantle, stairs, or the table.
Thinking outside the bowl, I elevated a vase, filled with an assortment nuts and candle, for a makeshift hurricane.
Nuts in the shell (available in the produce area of the grocery store) blend with color and texture of the deer. Readily available, nuts are beautiful mixed with fresh cranberries in season to fill vases for Thanksgiving and Christmas decorating, and can be eaten after the holidays are over :)
Winterberry ‘Cooler’ glasses have red-rimmed bottoms,
accented with painted holly leaves and berries.
Mug handles provide makeshift napkin rings~ a ready-made solution if your mugs and guests out number your napkin ring supply!
Bowls also have a distinctive square shape, and are ready to fill with a favorite holiday soup~ Cream of Plenty!
Santa and his bundle of toys come ready to deliver
Salt and Pepper for your holiday table. . .
And there are multiple options of serveware
from Winterberry, including bakers, pie birds,
bowls, ramekins, and canisters.
