HUE FOR DINNER: Part of celebrating the holidays is bringing out the fine china for you and your guests to enjoy. In the past, holiday dinnerware almost always included patterns or painted scenes, but these days you can still look festive without retelling a childhood fable on your table top. The Scarlatti Collection of plates and chargers at Crate and Barrel feature textured glass in rich reds, greens, purples and oranges for a foil-like effect that still looks and feels luxurious. GET IT: For $10.95-$16.95 in store only. Crate & Barrel, 4589 La Jolla Village Drive, UTC, (858) 558-4545.
Artful dinnerware to spice up your holiday entertaining.
