Holiday China


I love getting questions from you and was thrilled when I got a message requesting that I link some holiday china patterns!  Here are my favorites!


My sister and I collect Bernardaud’s Grenadier Pattern so that we can share with each other when have larger groups.  It is so charming but it is getting hard to find!

Juliska’s Country Estate is full of charm and quality that we have all come know from Juliska.  Each piece in the collection features a different scene from English Country Life and each brings a smile!  The serving pieces are wonderful and the punch bowl is my personal favorite as it also makes a great container for a fruit and floral centerpiece.

Longing for a Christmas in the snow?  There is nothing as darling as William Sonoma’s Alpine Berry Pattern for a holiday table!

There is nothing more classic than Spode’s Christmas Tree.  They mix beautifully with other patterns and are so much fun to collect! These darling pieces are heirloom quality that can be used every day and are quite often found on sale. 

If you are going for a classic highlands feel, William’s Sonoma Tartan is just for you.  I love this pattern as it makes a great starter set and, as you continue to collect, you can mix the tartan pieces with other collections such as Spode’s Tree or even with a classic blue and white Canton plate.


I love Bernardaud Etoiles Limoges for its versatile modern style.  It isn’t blatantly a holiday pattern but I love that it would work for one!  Red starbursts and gold lattice are classic yet feel very fresh in this design.  Explore the serving pieces and tea set too!  They are really special!

If your longing for a touch of country life, Villeroy & Boch’s Naif Christmas Pattern is long sought after and collected.

For a super glam collection, add the 2020 Versace Christmas Charger/Service plate to your collection.  My mother has been collecting them since the late 1990s when they first came out and I love to gift them every year to a special friend of mine who is very hard to buy for!  Add one every year or reach out and let me know what past years you are looking for.  I was able to find each of the years one client’s grand children were born recently!

And certainly last but not least, why not invest in a classic Canton Blue and White Pattern and pair it with green linens for a magical holiday look!  These pieces by Mottahedeh can be used all year long!
