Holidays around the world

1Holidays around the world

Ask your guests to share a bit of themselves with a Holidays Around the World party. Ask each guest to bring a dish native to the country of their heritage or ancestry. The Pier 1 Imports White Porcelain Sampler Set, from their Tasting Party Collection, will help your guests get a taste of everything, while keeping the flavors separate. Serve appetizers with toothpicks bearing "Merry Christmas" banners written in different languages. Decorate using holiday decorations from several countries.
