Tired of the same old dining table center piece? Look no further, we have many amazing vintage ball jars ideas that will make the perfect holiday centerpiece!

Look at the stunning centerpieces that you can put together with vintage ball jars and milk bottle holders.

The holidays are fast approaching. You have friends and family coming for dinner, brunch, or just dessert & coffee.

You’re working on your menu, gathering ingredients, and pulling your dishes out of your china cabinet, and you realize you were meaning to stop and pick up a matching serving bowl for mom’s dinnerware, or your turkey won’t fit in the roaster you currently have!

Where do you find those special pieces this close to the holidays???You’re in luck. We have a large selection of turkey roasters, gravy boats, pie and cake servers relish dishes, and more for your holiday entertaining needs.

We have many pieces of Franciscan Desert Rose dinnerware, including dinner plates, gravy boat, salt & pepper shakers, and more!

 

Just serving brunch this year? We have a few very nice silver plate coffee service sets.

 

aahhh, nothing like a vintage enamel roasters – turkey never tasted sooo good!
