A Holiday Tablescape with CorningWare, Corelle and More & A $250 Giveaway

CorningWare 21The holidays are right around the corner, and we always have a house full of family and friends…which means lots of meals.   I usually have the turkey, stuffing, and pie covered, but our dining room table….that’s another story.  I spend weeks perfecting my recipes,  but spend five minutes decorating the table and it shows!  By creating a holiday tablescape with CorningWare, Corelle and More, I was able to take care of my holiday dishes and my holiday table!

When CorningWare invited me to create a holiday tablescape, using CorningWare, Corelle, and other products from the store CorningWare, Corelle and More, I panicked.  I can’t even match my socks on a daily basis–how was I going to put together plates, silverware, napkins, and serveware?  But then I thought about it a few minutes.  Corelle has so many gorgeous dish patterns, and the CorningWare CW by CorningWare and French White collections would be lovely on my table. plus, the gorgeous fall jewel tones of red, gold and green were perfect to accent the CorningWare and Corelle pieces.  With a little help from CorningWare, Corelle and More, I had this holiday tablescape thing covered!

I popped into my local CorningWare, Corelle and More store to gather pieces for my tablescape.  The assistant manager, Robin was ready to show me the new and popular Corelle dish patterns,  new CorningWare serveware, their full line of Chicago Cutlery knives, and other new and popular dishes.  CorningWare, Corelle and More had more in stock than I remembered; not just dish and serveware, but cooking utensils and everyday tools that I need and use in my kitchen.

I was especially impressed with the selection of open stock Corelle dishware, as well as the ability to mix and match designs.  There were so many patterns, I could not decide what I wanted to use.  At first I had my eye on the Watercolors design.  I also liked the Garden Paradise dinner plates, with Emma Jane luncheon plates, but in the end, I decided on the Swept pattern, with its white swirl on white pattern.

I also picked out Cambridge silverware, new Chicago Cutlery steak knives, French White serving dishes, a CorningWare Etch pie plate, and other serving dishes.  I wanted to accent the white of the Swept pattern, and Robin helped me find some adorable green crocks I could use for soup or an appetizer. I had everything I needed for my holiday tablescape, plus tools for my holiday cooking!

I walked out of CorningWare, Corelle and More with more products than I expected and got a lot for my money.  The open stock dishware was on sale buy 3, get 1 free, the The French White serveware came in a six-piece baking set for $21.99, and everything else was at least 40% off regular retail pricing.  I was given a budget of $250, but there were so many great deals and products I wanted, I went a little crazy shopping and spent almost $100 more.

My Tablescape

I used gold chargers for the base, the Swept dinner and luncheon dishes, the green crocks (with fresh pears and apples placed inside), and red wine glasses.

Corelle 8CorningWare 15The white Corelle dishes really showcase the colors of fall on the table, and the swirl in the pattern gives the dishes an elegant touch.  I also used the new Cambridge silverware and Chicago Cutlery steak knives, and a red, green, and gold cloth napkin. I envisioned creamy pumpkin pie in my new green CorningWare Etch pie plate, whipped sweet potatoes, stuffing, green beans in my new French White baking dishes, roasted artichokes on the French White platter with bamboo insert, and cranberry sauces in my serving dish.

  63. Years ago my grandmother sent us a Honeybaked Ham for Christmas and so that became the traditional Christmas day main course. With 4 kids our schedule on Christmas Eve has always been pretty hectic – between finishing up last minute Christmas details, opening a few presents and going to midnight mass, it seems like our entire day is on the go. So a few years back I brought pizza home for dinner on Christmas Eve and when my hubby asked “What is this?” I replied “It’s our traditional Christmas Eve Pizza”. The following years the kids insisted on pizza because it was a “tradition” (well at least it became one that year). So the long answer is that I don’t really cook that much and so anything that is easy and as few steps as possible is my ideal Holiday Food to prepare.
