We know all too well that holiday decor can get pretty cheesy, but there are diamonds in the rough. We scouted a few pieces that won’t make you cringe.
Champagne highballs These gold-flecked glasses ($58 for a set of 4) from Anthropologie will add a sophisticated sparkle to your New Year’s toast.
Appetizer plates Bring some humor to the table with these CB2 “Oliver” appetizer plates ($2.95 each) that mix hand sketches with color photos.
Linen napkins Pony & Poppy’s screen-printed cloth napkins ($16 each) are a subtle nod to the holidays, and the mistletoe design makes for a good conversation piece. (To smooch or not to smooch? That is the question.)
Salt-and-pepper shaker set Straight from the pages of The Polar Express are Target’s stoneware salt-and-pepper shakers ($8) in the shape of cuddly polar bears.
Mod napkin rings Display napkins in simple silver rings ($6.95 each) from Williams-Sonoma to add some glamour to your tablescape this holiday and beyond.
