A Festive & Functional Dinnerware Set for Your Holiday Tablescapes
You don't have to stretch your budget by purchasing new dinnerware for each celebration if you're hosting holiday parties this season. Bramley dinnerware, featured in the Better Homes & Gardens' line at Walmart, is the versatile and oh-so-stylish set you'll need for the holidays. Find out how we would style this set for Thanksgiving and Christmas!
All About the Bramley Line
Durable enough for everyday use, but elegant enough to take center stage at your holiday celebration, the Bramley Crackle Glaze 12-piece dinnerware set is ideal for your collection. This handcrafted set was created with a unique, reactive crackle-glaze finish, meaning each set is one-of-a-kind. Whether you're dressing up your table for a small get-together or just serving a quick Thursday night meal, this set can handle it all. The Bramley dinnerware is both microwave- and dishwasher-safe, making it perfect for busy families and easy cleanup after your holiday parties. When choosing this set, you'll get four dinner plates, salad plates, and soup/salad bowls, so you'll have all the essentials when serving your guests. To complete your set, be sure to pick up the matching mugs as well!
Achieve a Timeless Thanksgiving Tablescape
Get inspired by the hues of autumn this Thanksgiving when preparing your Turkey Day feast for friends and family. Pairing the warm tones of the Bramley dinnerware with burnt oranges, deep shades of brown, and vibrant reds will give your home that highly sought after oh-so-cozy feel. Build your tablescape by first choosing a wreath that features a variety of fall leaves, pine cones, or even burlap as your centerpiece. Let your creativity run wild by adding candelabras, a cornucopia, or simple candles to the center of your wreath to fill out the piece. To accent your centerpiece, try choosing a burlap or crocheted table runner in a soft, natural color. This will add a fun pop of texture to your table and complement the smooth edges of the Bramley dinnerware nicely.
For place mats, we recommend using a fabric similar to your table runner to keep the table consistent. Make your table setting stand out by framing the Bramley dinnerware with brass flatware—your guests will definitely appreciate how this classic metal pairs perfectly with your autumn theme. Finally, top off your table by placing loose pine cones, leaves, and just touch of gold glitter all throughout. Although your guests will assume it took you hours to assemble this inviting tablescape, it's something you'll be able to accomplish in a jiff. That's what we like to call a win-win!
Create a Wonderful Winter Tablescape
A light and airy holiday table is what we're after this Christmas season. Begin by choosing a soft white tablecloth and pair it with a festive silver table runner. The trendy metallic fabric will give your table an elegant look but won't seem too overdressed. For your centerpiece, choose a classic evergreen or eucalyptus wreath to fill your home with a welcoming scent and bring a sophisticated feel. Break out the pine cones, silver or white satin ribbon, and a few holly berries to accent your holiday wreath for a truly wonderful winter tablescape. If traditional isn't quite your style, lanterns filled with candles or string lights make a stunning centerpiece behind the smooth, glossy Bramley dinnerware set.
Although place mats are not a necessity for this particular look, we would recommend choosing something dainty and delicate. A round place mat featuring a silver finish and lace-like design stands out next to the unique shade of blue in the Bramley dinnerware. Next, search for silver flatware with ornate motifs on the handle—traditional, Victorian-inspired designs are sure to be crowd favorites when it comes to this table setting. For an added touch of whimsy, try creating handmade place card holders using pine cones or evergreen branches dipped in silver glitter. Finish your table design with linen napkins in a creamy shade of gray and your dining room will be holiday-ready!
