5 Must Have White Entertaining Essentials
White dishes set the scene for any event, dinner, party or get together. A good set of white dishes will be your entertaining work horse! Invest in a nicer set for special occasions and an everyday set. Buy at least a set of 8. I recommend service for 12. Below you can see some of my very favorite dishes! I use these babies over and over! You can mix and match them, add pops of color or pattern. The possibilities are endless!
I have had my crown dishes for years and love using them for the holidays and for everyday! They also look beautiful paired with these beaded plates. My gold rimmed plates are my go to for the holidays to add some sophistication to my table. The rosette and lace plates look beautiful mixed and matched with all the patterns in the collection!
2. Table Linens
White table lines are essential! I love them for their versatility. Look for white linens with texture and personality. Here are a few of my favorite.
Something I really love to use when entertaining is white bakeware. Pop your dishes into the oven to bake and then serve them straight out of these pretty dishes!
Use the 7 quart dutch ovens to serve soup or hot chocolate. Tie a pretty ribbon on the handle for Thanksgiving or Christmas and use these pots in a buffet line for hot cocoa or apple cider.
4. Serving Dishes and Platters
Serving dishes, platters and bowls help make all of your food dishes sing! Look for pieces that are white but still have character and can be used in lots of different ways.
Marble cutting boards can be used for food prep plus serving. This white compote can be used for dips, salads or floral arrangements. Gold rimmed bowls add a little sparkle to your table or buffet and fun platters give your food an extra pop! White cake plates dress up yummy desserts and give your buffets height.
I just ordered this gold rimmed ruffle bowl and these lux stacking bowls for my holiday entertaining. It is exquisite! This footed tray with small ruffle bowl is going to be perfect to serve holiday dips and chips!
This year I am trying to reuse pieces fore every holiday to save myself time and money. Here is a simple and elegant centerpiece using these basketweave vases I bought in the Spring! You can use this arrangement for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas with a few simple tweaks.
For Fall use faux white hydrangeas with some gold leave tucked into the flowers. For Halloween, add a few plastic spiders and some curly willow stems. During the Christmas season, nestle in a few pine springs and Christmas ornaments!
These faux hydrangea are so real looking! They come in a set of 3. Each bunch has several stems tied together. Look at how lovely they look just tucking into my basketweave vases! Push the leaves into the vase if you don’t want them sticking out.
I have 3 bunches in my small vase and 5 in my large vase.
