This post was originally posted in 2013, and I have updated it with some newer patterns!

The holidays are a time when many of us bring out our finest linens, crystal and china from the cupboards.  It's also fun to start a new holiday pattern and use that at Christmas.  Here are a few of my favorite holiday patterns.  In addition to collecting it yourself, it makes a nice holiday gift. Tiffany & Co had their traditional "Holiday" pattern.  It was a beautiful blend of Red and Gold ribbons, berries and pine cones - so festive and elegant!   It appears they have discontinued the pattern since my earlier post, but you can still buy it on
