be festive


‘Tis the time of year when you are asked to bring an appetizer or sweet treat to holiday and Christmas parties. So why not combine that with a hostess gift? I do.

I feel badly bringing things in plastic containers when my hostesses have worked so hard to create a festive atmosphere. So I often combine my hostess gift with whatever food item I am asked to bring. Yesterday I bought an appetizer in a dish shaped like a Christmas tree. Much more fun than Glad Ware or Rubbermaid, and my hostess will have a fun Christmas dish to add to her holiday decor going forward.

You can find lots of fabulous vintage Christmas dishes as well as modern. There is a lot more out there than Spode or Lenox today.

Try it! Be festive!
