Is it just me, or do you agree that ALL great holiday memories typically start in the kitchen?
So many of my favorite childhood memories are all about cooking or baking for the holidays with my mom. Everything from an extravagant Thanksgiving dinner to just baking up my fav….chocloate chip cookies for Santa. That warm feeling of being together in the kitchen still brings a smile to my face.
This time of year, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed with prepping, wrapping, traveling…but those happy moments in the kitchen will always be the most important part of the holidays for me!
And that’s the inspiration behind so many of the NEW temp-tations I’m debuting today — as well as so many of our best-selling favorites. Beautiful, cheerful, festive finds designed to help you make warm holiday memories of your own.
One of my favorite pieces for gifting this season is this adorable Set of 3 Christmas Tree Stacking Bowls, now available in Old World and Floral Lace, including an array of classic colors. And to add even more magic, pair your gift with these sets of Christmas Tree Measuring Cups in Old World and Floral Lace. Perfect for baking, but also great for snacks, dips and even tiny little tree-shaped brownies. Adorable!

Whether you’re hosting family dinners, cocktail buffets, casual get-togethers or gift swaps, here are some key pieces sure to delight any hardworking hostess. Including you!
