The menu is planned. The invites are out. The cocktail sampling – er, experimenting – has begun. The house is mostly straight (at least the parts that guests will see). Now it’s time for…
Time to put all of those tablescape ideas you pinned in the middle of the night into action! Luckily, Becket Hitch at Green Spring Station has everything you need to set a gorgeous table that will delight your guests and earn you enough gold “Martha” stars for the whole next year.
Kohli Flick, owner and entertainer extraordinaire, shared her favorite items for your holiday table (and shared her favorite entertaining tips over on Green Spring Station’s blog!).
CHARGER: “The charger adds such an elegant touch to any table — and is easy to wipe up and set for your next meal. It’s also handcrafted in the United States, so that’s always a plus for me!”
WHIMSICAL STEMWARE: “Everyone can use a little humor in their life and these glasses bring that in spades. The perfect addition to any bar I think these make a great gift with a bottle of wine or 6 pack of your favorite beer.”
WOODEN BOWL: “I’m a bit obsessed with these spalted maple bowls right now. Each bowl is made from a fallen tree in western Massachusetts and turned by hand on a handcrafted lathe. Perfect for a giant kale salad, juicy fruit, or crusty bread the bowls are meant to be used and loved.”
COCKTAIL NAPKINS: “Our cocktail napkins are one of my go-to hostess gifts this time of year. The napkins are dressed up in a thick acrylic tray that can be filled time and time again with your favorite napkins from Becket Hitch!”
NAPKIN RINGS: “We use cloth napkins in my house and are always trying to figure out whose napkin is whose. These napkin rings take all the guesswork out of mealtime and help us keep track of Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, and Friends’ napkins.”
