Home for the Holidays: Stylish and Useful Holiday Entertaining Ideas

Everyone knows that Union Square is a fabulous place to shop for a stylish holiday outfit, but we’re also an amazing spot to visit for everything you need to create an elegant holiday meal. We have it all right here; plenty of pots, pans, roasters and gadgets to cook up a truly impressive meal for your friend and family, tons of gorgeous tablecloths, dinnerware and centerpieces to complete your table and a wonderful selection of décor to give your gathering that perfect holiday flourish. Here are some of our top picks for a delicious and stylish holiday season.

Bon Appetite

To create that iconic, bountiful Thanksgiving table, you’ll need the right tools. We don’t want you trying to create a magical meal with an old sauce pan and a cookie sheet! Instead, get your hands on some of the essentials, and life will be much easier. Consider a non-stick roaster from Crate & Barrel for the perfect turkey dinner. Never got the down low from mum on how to cook a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner? Crate & Barrel is carrying Thanksgiving: How to Cook it Well – this is the ultimate guide to a flawless Thanksgiving by NY Times Restaurant Critic Sam Sifton. Side dishes and sauces will get the proper treatment in a signature Le Creuset French Oven (which can pop right from the stove into the oven) from Sur La Table. Plus a Le Creuset baking dish set from Macy’s moves seamlessly from the oven to the table. We’re big fans of multi-purpose kitchenware, so check out these Pyrex Covered Mixing Bowls to easily mix and store.

Serve it up Right

Maybe it’s your year to get the perfect Thanksgiving dinnerware set – we definitely recommend a stop by our flagship Macy’s where you will be stunned by the excellent selection of plates to fit any style! Just a couple that caught our eye are the lovely Lenox Chirp Collection, the warm and elegant Oberon patter by Wedgewood and the beautiful Bouquet Collection by Ralph Lauren. A unique and modern way to serve up the turkey is this rustic Elk Horn serving dish from Anthropologie. It’s sure to create some buzz at the table. If you’re a little more traditional, we love this Martha Stewart Turkey Platter. For a stylish way to serve wine and bubbly, try this Etched Fern Stemware from Anthropologie. If you’re a pumpkin soup fan, we like this simple, yet elegant Soup Tureen from Crate & Barrel. For a dish that’ll make a splash, check out this Portrait Red Platter from CB2.

Sitting Pretty

The finishing touch is a truly dazzling table and dining room. This is easily accomplished with a few chic accoutrements. For instance, this Antique Floral Jacquard Tablecloth from Williams-Sonoma would be absolutely breathtaking for a traditional Thanksgiving meal. And for a little added luxury, place settings in these sweet brass place card holders from CB2 would just hit it out of the park. For a whimsical holiday meal, consider the Arctic Animals Cocktail Napkins from Anthropologie. For a girly touch, this Beaded Pearl Napkin Ring from Sur la Table is pretty and prim. For a bit of drama, we love this Antique Silver Candelabra from Williams-Sonoma.
