Whether it’s a full-blown party or just a mug of hot cocoa after work, Anthropologie’s holiday offering will have you—and your guests!—feeling instantly cozy and make any space seem like a quaint English cabin, even if it’s a tiny New York City apartment. Because nothing says “warm welcome” like a home aglow with pieces that mix fantasy and humor with beloved childhood memories.
The retailer’s exclusive holiday collaboration with designer Nathalie Lété is helping deliver those charming, whimsical vibes. The Paris-based artist’s latest collection is inspired by her background (she’s half German, half Chinese) and the fairy tales she grew up on. The resulting plates, mugs, and ornaments, among other items, are colorful without being cheesy, whimsical without being sappy, and style-forward while still staying true to the familiar nostalgia that really gets us in the spirit.
Tell a story with your table setting—these colorful 12 Days of Christmas dessert plates capture the spirit of the classic holiday carol. Pick a favorite or grab the whole set.
Didn’t inherit your great-grandmother’s ornament collection? Could’ve fooled us. These toadstool-style ornaments look like they’ve jumped straight out of a storybook.
Even bodega flowers will look charming in this gilded glass carafe. We recommend going with something bright and simple, like daisies.
We’d pile this Christmas tree plate high with colorful vintage-style candies and set it out at parties. Just think of it as the cheese board’s sweeter sister.
Fill these ceramic houses with a string of white lights and watch them glow from within. Just like the putz houses of your childhood, but somehow chicer.
You weren’t putting your butter in the fridge, were you? This cute dish is an idyllic addition to any holiday breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Turn this whimsical cookie jar into an entryway catchall for keys, masks, and cell phones.
Whether it’s coffee, hot cocoa, or a bourbon-y eggnog, we dare you to try and wait until December to start drinking out of this hand-glazed mug.
There’s nothing overtly holiday about these hand-painted vessels, but they’re the perfect way to add a pop of color to a less-than-festive corner or mantel. Fill them with lush, wild evergreen branches and add some mini metallic ornaments—no one will even ask about the Christmas tree.
