Christmas Plates





There are so many lovely decorative plates that it's a shame to keep them hidden away in a cabinet.  



So when I found a wrought iron rack at a yard sale for a couple of bucks, it got snatched up.

All through the year I change the plates frequently but my favorite time is at Christmas.


Some of the Christmas plates were gifts and some I found at thrift stores and yard sales. 

The display changes throughout the season.

Holiday dishes I have used for more than three decades are by Nikko. 

 They have held up very well and I love the Christmas tree in the middle.

Last fall, I found a gorgeous platter in that pattern as well as a creamer and sugar bowl, all for an unheard of $4.99.  Woo hoo. That was a major score.



Anyway, hope you enjoy seeing the Christmas plates!


We are in the final countdown to the Big Day. 

 May yours be super blessed!

ARE YOU GOING TO COOK ON CHRISTMAS? IF YES, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO MAKE?

Your plates are wonderful. I have several holiday plates I change by season too. I think plates are one of the best decorations because you can see them and use them both. I use a lot of large saucers as trivets for my tea pots during the changing seasons. A white tea pot can go on a Easter pink...blue flag...pumpkin color ...or red or anything!

My whole family is here on Christmas Eve and we do hors d'oeuvres - a counter top full of them - with lots of baked goods. (Every year I swear I'm never doing it again, it's too much work, but my family loves it and they bring some too.) Christmas morning we have egg casserole and "over-night coffee cake", and later in the day we have ham, mac and cheese, and sweet potatoes. Then I don't cook the rest of the week :-) A blessed Christmas to you all.

We got invited to my nieces for dinner but we are bringing two dishes.
I like your plates - I think the first one is my favorite - Santa. Then the last one with the beautiful tree.

Merry Christmas. sandie

Love all your plates especially since I do not own anything like it. I'm away for Christmas this year but when I'm home I like to cook a roast beef if I am having company...otherwise I like turkey! Happy Christmas!

Such pretty plates! Love them! I cook for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. For tomorrow I do a buffet with finger foods, noodle salad, deviled eggs, etc. Then on the big day, I just roast a turkey, whip up some gravy and serve all the leftovers from the night before. :) Easy Peasy. Merry Christmas! Kit

Love the plate rack. I have a black one that is on my to do list for a few months - i want to paint it white.

I'm doing brunch for everyone then it's just me and Mr OP for supper. For supper I'm doing a turkey breast with cornbread stuffing.

If I don't stop back before tomorrow night, have a wonderful Christmas Susan!

Cheers!
