Smaller Scale Christmas Styling that are Sure to Delight
The Holly Sprig Collection offers the most lovely array of classic holiday styling. Reminiscent of the holly bushes that surrounded Julia’s childhood home, this collection is quite a stunner. Every piece in this collection is a sure fire way to show real appreciation of the efforts of your host and hostess. Some of the perfect gifts for these party planners include the following:
- Holly Sprig 5.5” Petite Sleigh Bowl or the Holly Sprig 8” Sleigh Bowl. Sophisticated whimsy, these bowls represent the perfect St. Nick sleigh. Beautiful interior detailing of these bowls represents the lovely holly bush, red berries included. The sleigh has upturned runners with a subtle slope from the front of the sleigh to the back. These bowls are perfect for Christmas candies, mixed nuts or dips and seasonal sauces.
- Classic Holly Sprig Bowls or the Holly Sprig Sauce Boat. Timeless, yet with a vintage feel, the Holly Sprig Bowls come in a variety of sizes. For those with a bit of updated styling, the Mojito finish is bold, bright and beautiful, while the Emerald finish appeals to a more traditional clientele. The smaller scale bowls are ideal for chocolate covered nuts or Christmas mints that melt in your mouth. The Holly Sprig Sauce Boat has a naturally composed handle that will help simplify the pouring process of savory gravy or dipping sauces.
- Holly Sprig Starflake 6” Bowl. Sweet and petite, this bowl comes in the two stunning colors…the Emerald Green finish or the Mojito color palette. This pretty little perfect gift also comes in an iridescent white Snow finish. This little bowl is the perfect size to act as a salt cellar or even show off your favorite delectable dip.
- Holly Sprig 6” Ornament Bowl. A fairly recent addition to the Julia Knight, this holly sprig ornament bowl has lovely detailing and a sweet little detailing on the top. The bulbous shape allows for a little more space for you to fill with all your little extras. Whether it’s hummus, virgin olive oil and vinegar or a collection of condiments, the Holly Sprig Ornament Bowl is the perfect space saver on the table, yet goes miles for style.
- Poinsettia 5” Bowl. A luxurious Pomegranate finish, the Poinsettia 5” Bowl has a leaf-like edge with a pretty green center that is really beautiful. The depth of this bowl is actually quite nice and enables a little more space for such things as a savory cheese ball or a heated artichoke dip. Pair this bowl with a Poinsettia Spreader, and you have the most ideal hostess gift.
