We began our tradition of hosting Thanksgiving last year, and I look forward to the day spent with family over food and wine and all things holiday for weeks leading up to the holiday. One of the traditions that we began last year as well was using my Grandmother’s china for the meal. I know that she would be so touched to see us all enjoying a family meal together with a little piece of her as a part of our celebration. This year, I wanted to add a little something extra to our table settings, so I began the search for the perfect charger to dress up our Thanksgiving table.
I wanted something simple, yet elegant, and quality is always important to me, so I wanted to find something that will last over the years, just like my Grandmother’s china has. When browsing the Jay Companies website, I noticed many beautiful charger designs to choose from, as well as their large selection of other serving and drink ware. The pieces are all stylish and the designs range from simple and classic, to elegant and timeless, as well as modern. No matter what your decor, you will surely be able to find a piece to match your taste at Jay. You can also choose from glass, melamine, rattan, leather, and mirrored chargers. With 77 styles to choose from, it was difficult to decide on the pattern for our table, but I decided on a simple, yet elegant gold and glass charger, that would compliment but not overshadow my Grandmother’s china.
For over 50 years The Jay Companies has specialized in fine and casual dinnerware, crystal stemware and giftware, table charger plates and decorative accessories. Quality and fashion have been the hallmark of the Jay brand for over half a century.
When the chargers arrived, the box was marked as Fragile, the pieces were wrapped well and I was pleased to see the weight of the plates, as well as the attention to detail in the workmanship of the plates. The gold color shows beautifully through the smooth, glass top, and the chargers are food safe as well. I opted not to set a charger at every place setting (as we usually have anywhere from 12-25 guests for Thanksgiving), but every other place setting. They were the perfect compliment to our table settings, and the guests commented on them as soon as they sat down to the table.
After Thanksgiving, I also used the chargers to display desserts and appetizers, like these beautiful holiday cookies. These chargers would make a perfect gift to take to a holiday party with goodies on top, wrapped in cellophane for your host or hostess to keep.
Make sure to browse through the rest of the Jay website as well, there are hundreds of dinnerware items, drink ware, platters, and other beautiful pieces to make your kitchen, dining room, or bar more festive for the holidays, and everyday.
I have bookmarked their home page so that when I am looking for the perfect holiday gift, housewarming present, or unique item for the hard to shop for, I know where to go!
