This week, Preston’s pick is a set of votive candleholders and a matching glass dish from the American fine crystal company Godinger. If you sign up now, you’ll have access to this unique set, which is also on sale.
Godinger crystal is known for its quality, and Preston loves that its pieces are often brought out for family celebrations and passed down as heirlooms from the hostess of one generation to the hostess of the next.
For this elegant set, Preston suggests using your favorite candles and filling the serving dish with unexpected and delightful dinner accoutrements like garlic-stuffed olives and cornichons or four different types of sauces and condiments.
But of course you don’t have to limit yourself to food, and this IS Preston we’re talking about, after all! Don’t be afraid to mix things up a bit. Why not fill half the serving dish with nuts and the other half with fresh flowers? Or forgo food altogether, and use the serving dish as the base for your table centerpiece; arrange the candleholders around your arrangement, and your table decorations will be complete!
