Stuff I Want Wednesday

24 Nov

In case you’re not American or live under a rock, tomorrow is Thanksgiving. We’re having family over for dinner, which means getting the house ready for guests and cooking lots of delicious food. Today’s list isn’t exactly Thanksgiving-themed, but rather holiday entertaining. Or maybe just entertaining. Anyway, here are some fun things I’d love to use while entertaining.

This lovely vase from the MoMA store is modern and unique. I think it looks great with just a few small blooms in it, or with a whole arrangement of flowers. Definitely something special to put on your table.

These are definitely getting bought and used for my wedding one day. How cool are they? Champagne is great on its own, but a sleek glass like this just screams elegance and creativity.

I think you should always have some kind of game or puzzle or something entertaining for guests to do. Not always a board game (although those are fun and handy to have around), but something interesting that will get guests interacting with each other. This cube puzzle will do just that, I think, as guests try to create many different patterns out of the endless designs.

I used to think that I liked things very matchy-matchy, but now I’m more a fan of variety and things that “go.” These glasses definitely do that – you can tell they’re all a set, but they’re distinct enough that you know right away which one is yours. And they’re really fun, too.

My family loves deviled eggs. They’re always the thing that get snatched up faster than anything at family dinners. This colorful egg tray that looks just like an artist’s palette would be put to good use in my life.

What could be more fun to mix up your favorite dishes and then use these bowls for serving? Double duty, half the mess, less cleanup. Done.

Can you think of a better way to display your favorite photos of friends and parties for your guests? I can’t.
