Summer is upon us and with that comes a season of smashing social soirées!

At Julia Knight, we’ve collected and created our best housewarming gifts for 2022. From small to large scale, hostess gifts from Julia Knight are always chic, stylish, and cherished for a lifetime. Whether you’re going to a small dinner party, attending a lavish luncheon or dressing up for a full-on gala, we’re showing you the best of the very best below.
Show the Love
Show the love with the loveliest heart shaped bowl with sweet scalloped edging. The Heart 7” Bowl or the Heart 4” Bowl are so pretty and will leave a lasting impression on your host or hostess. Iridescent color options in Snow, Raspberry, Pomegranate and Pink Ice offer soft to bold finishes to suit every style. And don’t forget to stop by the confectionary on your way to the party to pick up the sweetest candies to embellish the bowls. Perfect for candies, nuts or dips, this bowl will be adored for every use.
Don’t Pagoda Without this Bowl!
One of the more unique pieces in the collection, the Classic 6.5” Pagoda Bowl is the epitome of class and elegance. Hand cut, hand applied mother of pearl pieces encase the edges of this beautiful bowl with a mosaic-esque style, while the interior is encased with hand crushed mother of pearl infused enamel. Inspired by the Buddhist Temples in Eastern Asia, this bowl is a bold beauty on a table, overflowing with treats, on a desk filled with paperclips or even in a powder room, with milled soaps or cotton balls.
Pretty Peony Pairing
Everyone, no matter for what occasion, needs the perfect hors d’oeuvres tray and dip bowl pairing. Julia Knight has the most exceptional collection of trays in bowls in the widest variety of sizes and styles. But one of the most refined combos is the Peony 14” Rectangular Tray with the Peony 5” Oval Bowl. This dynamic duo is ideal for cheese, crackers, artesian breads and olive oil to dip. Or go to the farmers market and pick up the latest seasonal fresh fruits and bring those to your host, beautifully displayed on the tray, with a berry yogurt dip.
Every bar or bar cart deserves the most vibrant bar accessories! Creating a vivacious crafted cocktail is easy when you have all of the necessary tools to make it happen. Every host or hostess wants to be as prepared as possible prior to the party so they can enjoy the companionship of family and friends. Simplify the party planning and bring the Citrus 6” Bowl for limes, in the Mojito finish or the same bowl for lemons, in the Lemon Ice finish. Sweet and petite, these bowls are the prefect adornment to every party and make every cocktail pop with flavor!
Bold and Beautiful
You can never have enough beautiful bowls and bringing your favorite hostess the Astra 16” Oval Bowl will be gratefully and gracefully accepted. This gorgeous bowl is one of the newest additions to the Julia Knight Collection. It’s the perfect blend of simplicity and modern style, boldly created for everyday use. The subtle, shallow sweep of the sides of the bowl, combined with the hand layered infused mother of pearl, create a striking presence at every occasion. And will quickly become the hosts go-to for everyday and every celebration.
When I Dip, You Dip, We Dip
A Hostess with the Mostest knows that one of the key components to every occasion is the variety of dips and sauces that are splayed out at the spread. Breads, veggies, fruits, meats, chips and more have just a little more “wow” when they have a little side of au jus, olive oil and vinegar, French dips or gourmet cheese dips. The Cascade 3-Part Server is an awesome way to serve three styles in one small footprint. Hand finished textured stainless steel, this server has a twisted handle that makes shifting and moving to different areas of the party, a breeze. Three dips in one container? I don’t mind if I do!
Salad Serving in Style
Big beautiful bowls deserve the most divine serving utensils, and trust us, no host or hostess has enough of them. From soft traditional styles to modern and urban organic, there is a Salad Serving Set for every host or hostess. The Classic Collection and the Peony Collection lean into a more traditional look and for a more modern hostess, the Sierra Collection, the Cascade Collection or even the Eclipse Collection are a great place to start. These sets are ideal for salads and sides and the scale of the scoops are perfect for a tasty portion of a favorite dish.
Yes, please, to cheese! The Julia Knight Eclipse Marble Cheese Tray with Cheese Knife will leave a long-lasting impression on your host. This stunning serving tray is an excellent place to showcase your charcuterie styling. Start with a small selection of hard cheeses, then mix in a variety of soft cheeses, add a few red grapes, the gorgeous cheese knife and voila! A total crowd pleaser coming up! A pro tip…chill the marble tray in the refrigerator or the freeze prior to the party and you’ll be able to keep the cheese fresh and robust for a longer window of time.
Classic Cocktail Napkin Holder
Every hostess needs a place to gather charming cocktail napkins. Whether it’s the bar, the server, or even a side table, Julia Knight has the prettiest Peony 6.5” Cocktail Napkin Holder and Weight to make napkins accessible throughout the party. Find darling and delightful cocktail napkins to suit the occasion, place them in the napkin holder and present this lovely present upon your arrival.
