Christmas Dishes

I took a photo of some of our Christmas dishes. My mother and grandmother pitched in to give us this set one year for Christmas. It was from Bradlees, a department store in the Northeast. Anyone remember Bradlees?
Rob and I bought a few extra pieces to add to the set just before Bradlees went out of business. The glasses were purchased separately at TJ Maxx, but they go pretty well! Handy Man bought the glasses for me for Christmas one year.

It says "Holly Yuletide" and "Japan" on the back of the dishes.
I've looked around at Christmas dishes at various stores, but I've never found this exact pattern again. Not that I need any more dishes in the set...but in case I break something, I thought it might be nice to be able to find an extra piece.

Handy Man and I took these dishes out today and put them in the kitchen cabinets. We store the Christmas dishes in quilted china covers, inside a buffet in the family room. (I'll do a separate post about the buffet sometime.) We put some of our everyday Fiesta Ware dishes away to make room for these.

Do you have a set of Christmas dishes? What do they look like?

I love your Christmas dishes. You can find more pieces and replacement pieces at www.replacements.com. Search for JAPHOY and your pattern will pop up.

Great dishes! We have no themed holiday plates, but we do have a china set, does that count? ;0

I have the same dishes from Bradlees 8 place setting (dinner plates, Ceral bowls, Cup & Saucers and Bread and butter plates) with lasagna, 2 9 inch veggie bowls, an oval dish and a 14" oval platter.. Funny I’m unpacking them now and half are in the dishwasher.

I would love to find a gravy boat and a butter dish.

Pretty christmas dishes. I remember Bradlees! (I lived in NH back in their heyday, in Derry and Gilmanton). I remember Stop & Shop bought them and then when they closed some of them became Ames stores. My 1st Christmas dishes were given to me between 1977-1980, by my Mom who got them from ... Woolworths! They were MilkGlss Holly Berry and I had everything, including platters and veggie dishes, etc. I lost the whole set when I divorced and my ex broke them on purpose!!! Now I use a set my sister gave me; she got new dishes and I took her Cabin in the Snow by Tienshan set. I use them from Christmas to St Patricks Day (when I put them away for the winter and use my white china for easter).
