This holiday entertaining season, look beyond your stark white china and think about Grandma’s dishes in storage! Consider a mix and match aesthetic, introducing vintage pieces to your tabletop. In designing, focus on sizing and patterns to create a luxurious masterpiece for all your guests to enjoy.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and pieces manufactured in different eras. Although Great Grandma’s Edwardian butter boat and Granny’s mid-century pieces may not be as harmonious as a perfectly matched set from Bergdorfs, they are certainly more interesting when layered together. Classic designers like Richard Ginori, Minton and Jean Luce create timeless, quality pieces that are certain to be the star of your holiday table. Stick with colors in your palette, whether it be shades of gold, or touches of green. Play with patterns, and you may surprise yourself with what ties the look together.
