Setting a festive holiday table is the perfect way to get everyone in the holiday spirit. From napkin rings to serving dishes there are all sorts of tabletop essentials. Aside from setting the table, sometimes the biggest problem is finding all the elements you need. That’s why having the proper storage is key for keeping everything organized and easy to find. There’s all sorts of china storage especially designed for holding silver flatware or fine china, all you have to do is find the right pieces to fit your collection and your storage space.
It’s important to safely store special occasion china that only sees the light of day a couple times a year, but any holiday meal would be incomplete without. For anyone with a large buffet or pantry the Dinner Plate Storage Chest, which has a built in window that makes it easy to find the right set of plates, is a great storage option. If you have limited storage space and are keeping china in a smaller buffet or a drawer the 4 Piece Quilted Microfiber Plate Storage is designed to snuggly fit plates, so it doesn’t take up that much more space than the plates themselves, but helps protect them while in storage. No matter what kind of storage you use, Plate Protectors between each plate are a must for keeping plates from rubbing against each other.
When it comes to storing flatware it’s just as important to keep pieces protected from getting scratched, as it is to ensure silver doesn’t get tarnished. By storing flatware in a chest that is fully lined in fabric that prevents silver from tarnishing, like the Corbin Flatware Chest , you can ensure the silverware is protected from both. I like to look for silver chests that are compact enough to store in a drawer, so they don’t take up a lot of storage space.
With the right tableware storage setting your holiday table can be an afterthought without having to look like it!
