We love coming together with local Birmingham creatives to collaborate and be inspired! Christina Brockman of Huckleberry Collective asked us to join this sweet Christmas dinner along with Ashley Mac's and Susan Gordon Pottery. Ashley Mac's, known for their Gourmet-To-Go, is the perfect way to an easy, but delicious stress-free holiday dinner. Susan Gordon Pottery is a small batch pottery studio creating collections of dinnerware, serving ware, decorative accents, and handmade jewelry that are organic, detailed, modern, and timeless. Susan’s work can be found in boutique retailers in cities across the country and you will find many of her ceramics nestled throughout our Dixie photography. We are loving her holiday collection this year with the addition of festive holiday illustrations hand-painted onto her ceramics.
We love the minimalistic simplicity of Christina's table. The clean lines of the flatware and the serving pieces along with the muted color palette of the florals allow the Christmas greenery to take center stage.
Christina knew that Ashley McMackin and Susan Gordon love the non-traditional Christmas colors as much as the tried and true red and green color palette. So when Christina found our Pine Crest designs created by Dixie artist Evelyn Henson, her mint green theme was established.
Fans of Ashley Mac's know that no meal of hers is complete without her famous sour cream biscuits and her baby bleu salad.
It's not Christmas dinner without a traditional red velvet cake! With a history almost as colorful as its rich crimson hue, the red velvet cake recipe dates back to the Depression era in the 1930s. Read about the cake recipe's story here for some fun facts to share around your Christmas dinner table this year!
We love the idea of assembling a hot chocolate bar for guests complete with cinnamon, additional chocolate and cookies to dunk as well as peppermint stirring sticks....and of course oodles of marshmallows to sprinkle on top!
How gorgeous are the white anemone flowers that Christina included in her arrangement? And we may have to add this beautiful ceramic angel from Susan Gordon Pottery to our Christmas wishlist!
