Turkey Day Decor: Serene’s Picks

16 Nov

We’ll again this year be doing a Holiday Gift Guide like last year, but I wanted to get in a separate post about dishes and serving platters that are on my mind this month for Spanks-giving. You know, the day you and yours gather round a table and dole out mashed potatoes and slaps on the tuchus. ..That’s a thing, yeah? Anyhow, let’s get to it. My Turkey Day wishlist.

$120.00 Dutch Oven on Etsy
Ahhh, Descoware. Vintage enamel cast iron cookware from the 1960’s. They come in a cornucopia of colors, but by far the most festive and eye pleasing, is the starburst orange varieties.

$21.00 Casserole Dish on Etsy
Casserole dishes, casserole dishes for ALL DISHES! Mashed tots, other forms of tots, marshmallow glazed tots, walnut sprinkled tots, and maybe even a fine collapsed souffle.

Gravy boats. Let’s take the time now to look at wonderful gravy boats.

$14.00 on Etsy.

$20.00 Gravy boat, sadly without the plate.

$10.00 lucite cheese board. Probably not great for slicing apart your hard cheeses, but will surely display them nicely. And perhaps it’ll make it a lot easier for blind-as-a-bat Aunt Canker to tell the cheese bits from the butter slices. Not that she doesn’t liberally spread both on domino tile-sized pieces of bread.

$34.00 salad serving set on Etsy

Good lookin’ spice rack for $62.00 on Etsy

$88.00 dish set with service for six!

Set of six dessert dishes for $42.00. C’mon, let’s try to not serve ourselves ice cream and pie in a soup dish this year, alright guys?

My phobia of greasy and pasta sauce-stained tupperware has led me be a lover of Pyrex dishes for my leftovers. They clean up fantastically, and I really hate trying to re-cover a plate with bunched up, dewey saran wrap when alls I wanted was to grab a nibble out of the fridge..

Six teak napkin rings for $15.00 on Etsy.

Vera Neumann set of napkins for $27.75. Strange count and strange pricing aside, I love this Vera design!

Amazing mod fish table cloth for $124.00! Blargh!

Yeah that’s right. These jawns are hella back. They’ve been out the game for some time now, and to much to my surprise (and delight!) they were in stock today! Marvelous. Now the only feat to overcome is that whopping price.
