  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Investment in Joy If the purpose of seasonal dinnerware is to bring joy to the purchaser or gift recipient, then the ‘Twas collection has for the past six years achieved this end with our family. Should the purpose be to transmit an heirloom to younger generations, then here again, not only are our children thrilled by the delightful designs, but our grandchildren are as well. Even in the dollar and cents world of collecting, we have been pleasantly surprised at how well our small collection has held or increased in value. And then there is the future….what fun it is to look forward to the newest design….the latest piece…..the next ‘Twas adorned gathering around our dining table.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite things about Christmas Twas the Night dinnerware will make any Christmas table brighter. I receive so many compliments on this dinnerware and enjoy them throughout the holiday season. I highly recommend this collection. Excellent quality!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful details! I was looking at this set & I happened to show it to my daughter & she bought a set of 12 with the big Santa. I love the dinner plates with Santa & his sleigh. I would love to get all the salad plates with just the single reindeer. Exactly what I was looking for. I hope WS carries it again next year.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Funny little details So I’m pleased with all of the salad plates, but the gingerbread house pattern has a funny/weird detail. I guess the gingerbread man knows he’s about to be eaten so he has a frown? Lol so strange. Also I see initials on the house for “VS”. Guessing that’s the artisan? I think the pattern is a bit off kilter, meaning it’s abit off balance on the plate where there’s a lot of “blank space” on the right hand side. I don’t see these issues with the other patterns

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastiest Hot Chocolate! I purchased your "double hot chocolate mix" as a Christmas present for m granddaughters. When the product arrived, I read the label and thought I'v got to try this, and ordered more. It is the "chocolatest" chocolate I've ever had!!! Fantastic stuff!!! I hope you never stop carrying it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please carry every year I just found this set and want to collect it to pass down to my kids. Unfortunately on my budget, this will take a very long time. I’ve always looked for a Christmas set and I couldn’t pay a lot for a pattern that was just ok. This set has me over the moon! I keep a picture of it on my phone just to look at during the day. I hope you carry it at least January so I can purchase my first piece. Thank you

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Collection I have been admiring this set all season. I just now realized this would coordinate with my Christmas china or make a cute set for future grandchildren at my table. I hope WS will continue to carry this in the years ahead. We all can't justify the investment right away, but could make plans to do so in the future. Keep bringing this back, it is so cute. Also keep the matching table linens as those were attractive as well and always needed on my dining tables. Keep up the classic choices and a few new designs for our younger generations.

    Does this collection offer soup or cereal bowls?

    Asked by: Phyl
    Hi Phyl, There are bowls in the collection. We unfortunately did not offer them on the site and were trying to locate some in our stores for you but were unsuccessful.

    First, I just treated myself and I purchased an 8 piece set of ‘‘twas the night collection.  They are gorgeous!  Will these hold up for everyday use?  They’re too pretty to just use for entertaining.  And please make cereal bowls to match!!

    Asked by: Sheltiemom1
    Hi Sheltiemom1, The 'Twas the Night Before Christmas Dinnerware collection is made of high-fired porcelain so they will hold up to everyday use. We appreciate the suggestion of adding a cereal bowl to the collection next year. In the meantime, enjoy the holidays with your new dinnerware!
