Villeroy & Boch Sets Your Holiday Table

Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide: Day 29

New_xmas_10bbb_07_1A great deal of the magic of Christmas is the special items you adopt that then become a part of how you and your family celebrate the season.  Whether it's a pair of handmade stockings or a collection of heartfelt ornaments, their arrival in your house signals the start of the holiday season.  Villeroy & Boch knows all about preserving these holiday traditions and has been producing heirloom quality ceramics for over 260 years, including their newest holiday collections.

 We all remember that special set of dinnerware or the miniature Christmas Village that came out of storage each year and made the holidays come alive as kids.  Once I was out on my own, I was determined to start my own traditions and I was incredibly lucky to find a guy who adores the holidays as much as I do.  I can honestly say that each year the holidays get even more magical as we develop our own traditions together.  Add in our two kiddos and the holidays at our house really couldn’t get more magical. 

New_xmas_10b_04 Our newest tradition is the inclusion of Villeroy and Boch in our Christmas decor, a custom which I hope our children can grow up with.  Starting from our first holiday party of the year, which happens just after Thanksgiving and all the way through to the annual New Years Day Christmas celebration, Villeroy and Boch will be part of our celebrations from now on. 

Most of you are probably familiar with Villeroy & Boch and could easily point out their distinctive dinnerware, accessories, and crystal stemware, but you probably don’t know that it has been family-owned for 260 years.  Their classic and beautiful pieces have been found on the tables of the Pope, royal families and the rich, famous, and elite worldwide as well as families around the world for decades. 

New_xmas_10b_03 Well, now you can add Rave Central to that list, because it will definitely be decking our table every holiday season from now on.  Our favorite line in the new Villeroy & Boch holiday series is the Toys Delight holiday pattern because of its timeless appeal.  We got to try out the Toys Delight Serving Platter this past month and were absolutely shocked at how beautiful and eye catching it is in person. 

Serving platter Not only is the Villeroy and Boch Serving Platter a large piece that can hold a great deal of food, snacks, and more, it is also truly beautiful and classic, which means it will fit with just about any holiday decor.  Since 90 percent of our potluck-style dinners occur during the 5 weeks leading up to New Years, this means that our extended family and friends will also get to enjoy this recognizable piece each year and come to anticipate its arrival on the holiday table each December.

Since I absolutely adore
classics, it’s really not surprising at all that I fell hard for Villeroy & Boch.  Because really, what more do you need for a classic Christmas meal than a house full of loved ones and a table set with Villeroy & Boch? 

You can now connect with Villeroy & Boch on Facebook to find out about all their news and promotions.  Be sure to visit Villeroy & Boch and choose the pieces that you would love to deck your tables year-round!       

Leanne Signature 2A big thank you to Villeroy and Boch for setting our table with the season's best.  All opinions are 100% ours and no form of monetary compensation was received in exchange for this very Rave Review.
