It’s nearly time to gather everyone around the table for a holiday feast. You’ve figured out the guest list and set the menu, but you might be forgetting an important component of hosting: holiday dinnerware.
Before you brush off the idea of Christmas dinnerware, we’d like to remind you that plain everyday plates and your assortment of unintentionally mismatched bowls have exactly zero chance of giving guests holiday vibes.
This year, treat everybody to a tablescape that truly channels the Christmas spirit. We have a feeling that festive new dinnerware sets from Macy’s will delight your family and friends for years to come, too.
Here’s some advice about holiday dinnerware that will help you wow guests throughout the season.
What type of dinnerware do you need for the holidays?
If you’re hosting over the holidays, you’ll need two plates per person at the absolute minimum for dinner—smaller plates for appetizers, salads or dessert and larger dinner plates for the main dishes.
If you’re hosting a low-key holiday breakfast, you can probably get away with one plate per person, but you’ll also need mugs…and possibly bowls, too.
Instead of trying to do the math for every meal, we recommend purchasing holiday dinnerware sets from Macy’s. That way, you’ll have everything you need.
What To Look For
Consider the invitees and the mood you want to convey. If you’re keeping it casual, hassle-free Christmas dinnerware sets in melamine are perfect for families with little children (or accident-prone uncles).
If you’re hosting a more elegant affair, such as an adults-only dinner, look for refined sets made of porcelain or bone china. Don’t forget to pick up coordinating holiday serveware, as these finishing touches help set the tone of the evening.
Host Them All With Comfort And Joy
Make holiday meals into memories you’ll treasure with Christmas serveware and dinnerware from Macy’s.
