Christmas Day Brunch With Vietri

Filed Under > Entertaining

One of my absolute favorite holiday traditions is my family’s Christmas Day brunch.  Right after the presents have been opened, but before we settle in for the inevitable mid day nap we gather together, pajamas still on, and brunch.  And this year will be extra special because I’ve had a little help from VIETRI.  For over 30 years VIETRI has been bringing handcrafted tableware and decor straight from Italy and in to our homes.  And this year I fell in major love with their Rosso Vecchio Dot collection.

The Rosso red is the perfect red, which means it can translate well past the Christmas season (think Fourth of July and summer BBQ’s), and pairs perfectly with their classic Bellezza Holiday accent plates and reindeer bowls.  I completed the table with VIETRI’s classic pewter flatware, my favorite linens from the Shop, and more food than any one family can eat and voila.   The table couldn’t get any more festive.

And because we want to help make your holiday table just as merry we’re giving away 6 of VIETRI’s Santa canape plates (pictured above with Williams Sonoma’s chocolate peppermint bark croissants).  Later this week I’ll also be sharing how I made the fabby wreath chandelier and the recipe for my goat cheese and spinach quiche.  Now that’s how I like to kick December off.  Merry merry Loves.  truly, MKR

P.S.  Big, big congrats to Ellie the winner of our Studio Ten 25 giveaway.

  • Our favorite family holiday tradition is making pizzelles with my kids (and eating them with my morning coffee on Christmas morning). It is what I used to do with my sister and mom as a kid and I love sharing this once a year tradition with my children. Those Vietri plates just need a stack of pizzelles to make them complete perfection! Ciao, SS

  • thank you for hosting this giveaway and thank you vietri for the chance at these gorgeous Santa plates!
    my favorite tradition is our Christmas eve fondue dinner before presents and church. gifts on Christmas eve is a German tradition. this leaves Christmas morning for Santa! Thanks again and good luck!

    Love these pieces and would love to have them on my table this Christmas.

  • Jessica english / 12.02.2013

    Love this post so much! My favorite holiday tradition is picking out a tree and decorating it– I’m so excited to do so with my husband this year because it’s our first Christmas in our first home! It’s so nice to have your own space to decorate. I can’t wait!

  • My mother-in-law calls me the Brunch Queen – my favorite meal for entertaining!

  • Missy / 12.02.2013

    Beautiful dishes set off your lovely tablescape. Where are the animal gift tags/ornaments from?

  • Melissa / 12.03.2013

    Beautiful table! I’ve been collecting Vietri for years which leads me to my favorite tradition: making a big pot of gumbo on Christmas Eve and serving it to my family in my Vietri Old St. Nick collection!

  • Jeannie Murphy / 12.03.2013

    I love a hot cocoa party with your plates filled with cookies.

  • Oh my goodness! Those are the cutest reindeer serving bowls! Thanks for the post; definitely going on my Christmas list, they match my current dishes well!

    Favorite Christmas tradition: although my dog passed away last year, my favorite Christmas tradition was letting him open all of the bagged gifts! We’d put treats in ones that weren’t even his just to see him stuff his little head down in through the tissue paper! We have a new puppy now and are hoping he has the same character and excitement Christmas morning!

  • BrIdget / 12.03.2013

    Hi there. Do you know where the horse tags wi the winter wishes came from? My daughter has horses and this would be so cute for me to add to a table for her. Thank you

  • Julianne / 12.03.2013

    Baking Christmas cookies…lots of them!!

  • This is a beautiful giveaway! Those plates are adorable.

    I love baking cookies with my mom and sister, picking out an ornament every year since I was 5, and watching my favorite Christmas movies. 😀

  • Christina W / 12.05.2013
