Talking about Christmas way too early

Okay, there are a couple of big things wrong with this post.

1) I hate it when people get all Christmas-y before Thanksgiving.
Let's celebrate Thanksgiving AND THEN think about Christmas.
I also hate it when people decorate before Thanksgiving.....come on, six weeks of Christmas decoration is not enough?

2) That being said, I don't even really decorate for Christmas.
Well, sometimes I do a little. I haven't had a tree in years. I don't have kids, so it seems like a huge hassle for just the hubs and me. So, the second thing wrong with this post is that I wouldn't buy Christmas plates and/or mugs. They seem like a waste of money to me, just being used one month out of the year and all. I like to stick with white plates and serving dishes and plain glass goblets and then use pops of color with the napkins, tablecloths and table decorations.

BUT, these plates, mugs, and the cakestand are sooooo cute! And I love the mugs (below) too!

So maybe if my scroogy-ness wears off I'll buy these. :)

And in my defense to problem #1, if you were to buy these you would probably want to order them before Thanksgiving so they'd be delivered, washed and ready for your holiday parties!
Everything found in the 'Holiday' section on Crate and Barrel's website.


  1. Ha! I agree. Celebrate Thanksgiving first!!!
    (But I do love those dishes) :)

  2. Cute! I love that cake plate.
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. They are cute! I'm a fan of celebrating Christmas as early as possible. LOL.
