sfgirlbybay entertains with holiday dinnerware

the holidays are coming upon us quickly. and although i love decorating for the season, i’m not one to be completely enamored with the more traditional christmas decorations, or lots of shiny colorful bulbs, but give me a red & white scandinavian-inspired holiday and i’m in. crate & barrel very kindly invited me to pick out a few items from this season’s holiday collection and create a pretty holiday themed party to help inspire you this season, so we created a chocolate fondue and coffee & dessert party. most delicious! it’s been a long time since i’ve made fondue (which is actually a Swiss tradition) and i forgot what a fun party atmosphere it creates. everyone loves cooking with a stick! and chocolate helps, of course.

we made chocolate dipped strawberries, and served cookies and sweets along with fresh coffee in the pretty chemex and espressos for the adults, and whipped cream topped hot chocolate in big white mugs for the kids. you can find more holiday inspiration from me over at crate and barrel. happy holidays!

  1. Hi Victoria! The mixing of the red and white Otomi-style runner with your clean and simple Scandinavian style is gorgeous. I love making Mexican design modern by adding just a dab of something handmade from Mexico into one’s home. And I love advertising on the site! So many visits and lots of purchases. Very Best, Anne at Zinnia Folk Arts, Minneapolis

  2. I make pillows from the hand embroidered Otomi indians and I love the fact that you can now buy fabric with the designs so it can be used in more ways. I use spoonflower.com for my printed fabric.

    Great post.
