With a disco ball centerpiece and string of pale yellow fairy lights, this table gives an enchantingly modern glow.

modern holiday drink set

Can’t have a party without the drinks. We recommend a sophisticated set-up like this one, with mix-your-own cocktail instructions and fresh ingredients. Special thanks to Apartment Therapy for the ideas!

modern holiday anthropologie plates

For tableware, Anthropologie’s Inkwell & Argent dinnerware may not scream holiday, which is precisely the point. Sleek and slightly edgy, these fluted ceramic dishes are stamped with inky motifs and shiny silver to pair perfectly with, say, red and green, or blue.

modern holiday crate & barrel

Not to forget Hanukkah for one second, Crate and Barrel also offers many beautiful settings in teal and silver. This Teal Rimmed Plate is a fun take on classic china.

modern holiday vesta crimson

Crate and Barrel’s Vesta Crimson dinnerware collection screams festive, pomegranates and cranberries. With class, of course. This textured glass dinner plate is only $13.

modern holiday urban outfitters plates

Often on the grittier side of chic, Urban Outfitters offers holiday plates for those with their tongue planted firmly in their cheek. These Dancing Gnomes Plates (4 for $20) are dishwasher- and microwave-safe porcelain.

modern holiday pottery barn plates

For a more nostalgic atmosphere, leave it to Pottery Barn to create classic plates. With images of Old Saint Nicholas, smiling children and poinsettias, this set of four plates layer beautifully on the table as dinner, salad, or even dessert plates.
