I absolutely love entertaining and am obsessed with tableware. I adore setting the table and serving food on beautiful platters and in different bowls. We have several tableware collections including pieces from Yvonne Ellen and Denby, and vintage sets that belonged to my late grandparents and Ian’s late parents.
My Emma Bridgewater is what I use most often though- every day in fact. However, I have some Emma Bridgewater Christmas serve ware that I bring out in December. (It’s well worth looking at this time of year because the Emma Bridgewater end-of-season-sales are excellent). We spent Christmas Day at my parents’ house and Boxing Day at home which meant I was able to indulge and do a buffet. This is our casual Boxing Day buffet for four.
Some of these items are discontinued but most are still available.
The placemats and coasters from Just Slate are excellent. I double up and use them as small platters as well.
And finally, I saw this meme on social media. It seemed very appropriate.
