100 Christmas Entertaining Essentials

From Jolly Glass Adornments to Friendly Dinner Plates

— December 9, 2014 — Lifestyle
The holidays can be a hectic time when it comes to Christmas entertaining, but these items for the kitchen and dinner table make hosting a gathering easy and fun.

Some of the most unique items include plates, drinking glasses, place cards and item for serving that lessen the strain on the host. Some great examples of this include Weng Xinyu's Hotpot-Set, which makes it easy for groups to gather and serve themselves, or the L’Atelier du Vin Bubble Indicator, which shows how bubbly drinks like champagne are, and if they should be consumed before going flat.

Some of the most festive items to decorate the table with include bottle toppers shaped like Santa and snowmen, or napkin rings in the shape of reindeer.
