Happy Holidays!! Whether you're recently married and hosting the holidays for the first time this year, or you're engaged and looking forward to spending time with friends and family as a married couple next year, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season filled with great food and company.
We're sharing some of the top pieces chosen by Gearys, a high-end tabletop, giftware and fine jewelry store in Beverly Hills that is often chosen by Inside Weddings couples as a retailer for their wedding registry. "When couples are building their wedding registries, we always suggest they include heirloom-quality items for the holidays," shares Gearys President and CEO Thomas J. Blumenthal. "Whether it's beautiful crystal Champagne flutes by Baccarat, whimsical napkin rings, or exquisite dinnerware, holiday entertaining pieces are essential."
He also encourages couples to select items that will stay timeless throughout many holiday seasons to come. While you may not feel you need fine china and crystal now, a wedding registry provides a wonderful opportunity to begin building a collection of the forever pieces you and your family will cherish for decades. "The holidays are always a little bit chaotic, but when you have elegant holiday entertaining essentials that can be used year after year, holiday entertaining becomes a less daunting task," Thomas J. Blumenthal adds. "These high-quality pieces will become a holiday tradition in your home and will serve your family well for years to come."
