How to Properly Store Holiday Dinnerware

While the parties and entertaining are just getting underway, in about a month we'll all be in clean up mode (sniff, sniff!). I wanted to share my simple tricks for storing holiday dinnerware (so you don't even have to wash it next year when you pull it out!).


My mother began giving me my Christmas dinnerware the year my husband and I got married. She would give me a couple of pieces every year. Sometimes, she'd hit the after-Christmas sales and I'd end up with several sets at a time. It's been such a treasured collection. While I'm definitely a self-proclaimed dish junkie, this is truly the only set that has been completely mine. All of my other sets came from antique stores, thrift stores, estate sales, and relatives that passed on. This Christmas set is truly the only set of dishes I own that came straight from the store (via my mom!). And now that my mom is getting older, she passed on her same Christmas pattern to me as well (she actually had all the serving pieces in her collection). I truly treasure this set and look forward to pulling them out every year. Here's how I take care of them so they always stay in tip-top condition.

We can never forget our pups during the holiday season, right? I love to give practical gifts that get used over and over...not only to people but to dogs, too, y'all. I thought a reusable canister full of dog treats and toys would be the PAW-fect gift this year. Give this one to your own dog or to the dog-lover in your life...or maybe even a new pet owner. And don't FURRRR-get to add one of my free printable dog gift tags to make it even cuter!
