Pressed Glass

Do you have special dishes to serve for holiday dinners?

Have you collected holiday and Christmas dishes over the years, or have dishes handed down that are a holiday tradition?
I have a part of a set that belonged to my mother, roses with gold trim, that I use for special intimate meals.
For my big meals, I have a set of Amberstone and another set of Marcrest that I have been collecting for 40 years. I have enough to serve about 30 people! If my house would hold them! I usually augment them with Christmas and holly serving pieces, and pressed glass dessert dishes.
That Amberstone is like ironstone, you could use it for frisbies and it wouldn't break. I have never broken a single plate of it, do I don't worry about it. And I can always replace it. It would just give me something to look for in the flea markets. They are just dishes.

I have a set of china. white design on white, with platinum trim. Very pretty . Service for 12. But, since we moved to a smaller place, these dishes and china hutch are buried under other stuff in a little room behind the garage. Can't get to them. No room in the house for them.

So, on holidays, I use my white everyday dishes. No pattern at all. But, with my red holiday table cloth & matching napkins, along with a candle centerpiece, very pretty holiday table.

I do have a triangular shaped dish of clear glass, with a grape design that we use for cranberry sauce. And a long glass dish that originally came from Avon, that had decorative soaps. We use that dish now for olives. Green on one end, black on the other...These are a tradition that go back to the days when my kids were small, and there was no money for fancy things. Worthless dishes, but traditional on our table, which makes them treasures for us.
