Entertain in Style This Holiday Season

Entertain in Style This Holiday Season

The holidays are upon us… how’s your planning going?  Once the menu is set and the grocery list made up, it’s time to take a fresh look at your holiday table.  Half the fun of hosting is putting on a good show! 


Handcrafted Charcuterie Boards, Cheese Plates, and Cutting Boards

Charcuterie boards are the hottest new way to serve an appetizer, and boy is it more than just “cheese and crackers”... with a beautiful board, you can create a dazzling display of artisanal cheese, fresh fruits, nuts, dried fruits, spreads, chocolates, crackers or crusty bread. 

It’s all in the lush presentation of an abundance of mouth-watering tastes and these beautiful cutting boards make the visual interest complete.  A Cut Above makes all of their beautiful wooden cutting boards locally in Natick, MA, and their beautiful boards will make your appetizers a work of art.


Appetizer Servers that Add Variety and Class to Any Spread

The wonderful thing about wooden serving dishes and platters is that they offer a different color and texture to complement your existing serveware – and this never goes out of style.  The staff favorite at Elsie Kaye Glassworks is Thomas Work’s unique cutting board/serving tray combination - where you can slice up your cheese or chop up your vegetables on one side and flip it over and serve on the other side.  Not only are they gorgeous, but there’s one less dish to clean!  They make great gifts for the hostess who has everything.


Baked Brie Dishes

Who doesn’t love some warm baked brie?  You can top it with cranberries or nuts, wrap in en croute, or serve it as a standalone favorite.   These lovely baked brie dishes from Bluegill Pottery make the perfect addition to your holiday entertaining with their vibrant earth colors and ease of use (oven safe and dishwasher safe!)  Top it off with an Elsie Kaye Glassworks cheese knife!

Olive Dishes

With their unique shape, olive dishes are an elegant way to add dimension to your appetizer spread.  For those who are looking for rich earth tones, check out these unique appetizer servers from wood artisan Thomas Wood, including an olive dish /cracker tray.

Or for a dish of natural whimsy, check out our olive dishes from Bluegill Pottery, adorned with a sweet bird on each one.


Platters That Dazzle

Having a stylish mix of platters and serving trays can create stunning visual impact. In our studio, you’ll find handmade artisan platters from all over New England and the USA.   These unique "River Flow" platters from Vermont's CQ Glassworks are not only beautiful, but they are a true conversation piece!


Salad Bowls and Vegetable Bowls with a Pop Of Color

Bring on the mashed potatoes… not to mention the stuffing!  Be sure to add in a harvest salad to round out the meal, and serve it in these gorgeous handmade wooden salad bowls made by White Hall Woodturning in Hopkinton, MA.  Your guests will admire these unique dishes as they pass them around the table. (And of course, don't forget to pair them with an Elsie Kaye stainless steel/glass salad server set!)


Mixing Bowls to Make Cooking Fun

When preparing a big meal for a crowd, you can never have too many mixing bowls. But why settle for the same old same old when you can whip up some pumpkin pie in these colorful “Bowl-A-Palooza” handmade batter bowls from Becky Potter straight from Portland, ME.  Perfect for holiday morning pancakes too.


Holiday Tea Towels

Get in the holiday spirit with these 100% cotton tea towels from Sister Bees in Ludlow, Michigan. So cute!
