~ Holiday Entertaining Made Easy with SYW

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, we have lots of ways to help you with your Holiday Entertaining needs. Entertaining family and friends during the holiday season can surely be stressful, so let us ease the burden with some of our useful products featured below. The assortment of our coordinating serving dishes, utensils, handy serving tools, and classically styled dining furniture is one that we are proud to offer our customers. Let’s take a look below.

Coordinate Your Serving

Add cohesiveness to your serving trays and utensils, for a polished look while entertaining anytime of year. To the left we feature our Artichoke Serving Bowl; perfect for serving a salad or small side dish. Made of heavy duty, restaurant grade china, this white serving bowl displays a photo realistic image of an exposed artichoke heart. Artichoke is written numerous times in various shades of green throughout the background and pairs well with our matching Artichoke Bread Tray.

At SYW we also have some utensils that are simply perfect for your holiday gatherings. Our Vintage Reserve Spreader is made of stainless steel and is complete with an antique looking wine cork as the handle. This spreader makes serving soft cheese or cheese spreads, with crackers or toasted bread a breeze. Coordinate with our Bordeaux Vineyards Corkscrew for a wine or vineyard inspired holiday. Furthermore, both of these items would make a thoughtful hostess gift, as they come packaged for gift giving.

Convenient Entertaining

Preparing dishes, even just the appetizers, ahead of time can save you time later on, to better be able to enjoy the party with your guests. At Sturbridge, we have a variety of kitchen tools that you’ll find handy on many occasions, but the items presented here are sure to become your ‘go-to’ when entertaining for the holidays. To the left, our Stay Cool/Warm Dip Server is made of durable white stoneware. The dual functioning dip server, keeps both cold dips and hot dips at the desired temperature.

Other must-have items this holiday season, are none other than our Embroidered Crackers and Bread Baskets. Displaying the baskets contents, your guests will enjoy the homemade feel of the hand woven, pine wood baskets with an exclusive “wave-weave.” The convenience here is the washable, cream linen liner inside each basket. And to round out the collection, we also suggest our Salt & Pepper Basket. We hope entertaining will be a little easier this year, with the use of any of these quality made products. Happy Holidays from all of us at SYW.

New Holiday Accents for the Kitchen – Website Exclusive

Monday, November 12th, 2012

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop, there have been many new additions to our Website Exclusive assortment. Customers can look forward to even more great products and gift ideas in the coming weeks this holiday season. Today we feature a selection of our recently added, Kitchen Accents, that are perfect for adding a touch of festivity to your tabletop decor.

Pictured here to the left is our Gingerbread Man Jute Trivet, available now for $6.95 each. It’s none other than your favorite holiday cookie proudly displayed in the center of the 100% braided, jute trivet. Trivets are ideal for protecting your table surfaces from hot dishes or tea kettles, and they’re a great way to bring color into your kitchen and dining spaces. On a similar theme, we also have a Gingerbread Cookie Recipe Hot Pad. For the low price of $14.95, this hot pad is filled with a fragrant vanilla and shares artwork from Maine artist, Harry Smith. The front of the hot pad details a recipe for gingerbread cookies and therefore makes a nice gift idea too, perhaps for the baker in your life.

Entertaining becomes more common place this time of year, so don’t forget your tables when decorating. Having a fantastic table centerpiece can bring the decor of a room together and creates an inviting environment for your friends, family and other guests. Shown here to the right, are two options for 72″L table runners at Sturbridge. On the top, both kids and adults alike will enjoy the charm of our Snow Friends Table Runner. Snowmen are fun because they work well throughout the entirety of the winter months. Boasting knotted red fabric on either end, this runner is cheery in its color and appeal. Next up, is our Santa‚Äôs Sleigh Ride Table Runner, pictured on the bottom. Framed with holly berry and trimmed with two black tassels, all eight reindeer are here on this Christmas Eve Night. Its silhouette imagery adds a classic look to your tablescape. Both new table runners are designed by Susan Winget and are available for $34.95 this season.

All of the products mentioned here are made here in the USA.
