It’s a Better Holiday with Better Homes and Gardens

December 1, 2011

I recently took a trip to Walmart, where I discovered the extreme beauty of Better Homes and Gardens Holiday line.  From a distance, I really was worried that their sets looked like something my Grandma would own, but up close – and paired together – Man.  I wanted the whole set for myself!

Under $5

Starting at the lower end of prices – BHG carries a wide assortment of items for your Home:  These salt and pepper shakers are perfect for adding a touch of holiday to your meal – without breaking the bank!

I also love the assortments of plates that they carry!  Can you imagine baking a bunch of Christmas Cookies and Treats, and bringing them wrapped in cellophane on a beautiful glass plate instead of paper?? Then they can instantly set the treats out on the table to share with their 1 (3)

At only $3.00 per plate – It adds the perfect touch to your Holiday Giving!

Under $10

Better Homes and Garden also has a variety of serving platters, bowls, and other items that will be perfect for your holiday party!  I love the gravy boat and saucer!

The Centerpieces were my favorite items from BHG.  At only $10, it’s an awesome gift to give, or to keep for yourself.  I love the multi-level candles!

Want to know a secret??

Every year, I buy one or two items like this – and wrap them up.  Usually items that I would love to have for myself – but that work for just about anyone.  That way, when a neighbor shows up at my door with a gift – I’m always prepared to give them something back.  OR – If I am notified a few hours before Christmas that a guest is joining us – I’ve got a gift that will make them feel like they’re part of the family!

If none of those scenarios happen? It’s all MINE!

Under $15

In the $15.00 price range you can find things like this table Runner.  It’s beautifully scalloped and embroidered. A perfect addition to any table!

Better Homes and Gardens also makes full table cloths (embroidered and non-embroidered) as well as Placemats, and cloth napkins.  A set of these could make your Table sine for Christmas!photo 3 (4)


What kinds of traditions does your family do for the Holidays?  Do you usually decorate your table nicely?

  1. I loved the collection too! I would love to own holiday themed china but I don’t….however, the prices of the BHG line are so reasonable it seems silly not to.

  2. I don’t usually decorate my table, since we don’t have Christmas dinner here. But I am loving that first table cloth you have pictured, and those centerpieces are beautiful!

  3. Which one’s did you buy? There were some cute choices.

  4. I love the Better Homes & Gardens sets at Walmart – everything is so pretty and festive! And I love your idea of buying something and wrapping it to use as an emergency gift – I do that with candles!

    I really want to try their new candle warmers. I’ve heard wonder things about them.

  6. I purchased the better home plates last, peace, hope and joy along with the cups.. I gave one set as a last min. I need another cup and plate..doesn’t matter which one but I gave away love. I’ve seen the 4 plates in the store as a set but I cannot find the cups.I got them at walmart.

    I purchased the cream (Damask Pattern) Better Homes & Garden’s Tablecloth and I am soOO
    in need of the matching napkins. Can anyone please tell where I can find
    them or if they even make napkins to match this tablecloth.
    Thanks soOO much!

  8. I love BHG decorating items and own a few myself. Love them.

    What a beautiful collection. I loved the centerpieces. I usually don’t have nice dishes or decorate the table, usually Christmas is spent with extended family so paper plates was the way to go. Now that it’s just me and my children I think I’m going to look into holiday dinnerware and table decorations. Thanks for sharing

  10. Bonded leather is much like particle board.
