Until recently, holidays didn't mean much to me. I grew up in a family that didn't celebrate, so I really didn't understand what all the fuss was about. But my boyfriend loves Christmas, so I decided to join him in the holiday festivities — last year was the first year that I exchanged Christmas gifts and this year will be the first year I set up a tree. Since I didn't grow up with any holiday traditions, I have been able to start my own-- and purchasing holiday china is one of the ways in which I will do that.
Currently, my top choice is the Iittala Taika Collection
. It is beautiful, colorful, and full of whimsy and character. Even though my design aesthetic usually leans toward clean and minimalist, something about these plates just makes me salivate--not to mention that they are beyond cute.
My current dilemma is deciding whether to get all of one color, or mix and match the dishes. Either way, I am sure that I will love them. I cannot wait to incorporate and start even more traditions in the upcoming years.
