#CelebrateVB For a Chance to Win

This holiday season Villeroy & Boch invited four well-known food, fashion and interior design bloggers from around the world to show us their most festive get-together (with the help of our quality dinnerware, of course!).

Their tablescapes were absolutely stunning, and we want to see more! So, we are challenging you to also show us how you celebrate the festive season by posting your own party pictures on Instagram using the hashtag #celebratevb for a chance to win a set of dinnerware from Villeroy & Boch.

To insopire your festive tables, take a look at the lovely celebrations held around the world with V&B:

USA

A pasta party with a skyline backdrop

The Americans from the blog “Bitches who Brunch” threw an intimate rooftop party in New York City. They took advantage of the last days of the year before winter sets in to get together for an evening of delicious pasta and good wine (and plenty of laughs and conversation along the way). The sleek, modern Pasta Passion collection perfectly suited the urban atmosphere.

Europe

East elegantly meets West in Germany

The German blogger and fashion entrepreneur Lena Terlutter hosted a relaxed evening with an elegant table. The Asian-inspired Samarkand collection added a graceful, regal quality, and Lanson champagne was served in glasses from the Grand Royal line — for an effortlessly elegant mesh of cultures.

Pizza in Paris

Sophie Trem, from “The Other Art of Living,” enjoyed a meal with her French family and Villeroy & Boch’s Pizza Passion line. Her small-but-charming Parisian apartment was a perfectly cosy setting for a fun family evening in the European metropolis: stylishly unpretentious and oh-so chic.

Japan

A picnic with a quirky twist

The Japanese blogger Ebony Bizys, from “Hello Sandwich,” took us to the colourfully unconventional world of Japan, with a picnic on the floor of her flat. Vibrant hues throughout added plenty of personality to the upbeat, fun evening. This is what a Japanese Christmas with friends could look like: stylish and unique.

Create the Perfect Cold Weather Soup Buffet

By Guest Blogger Amanda Saiontz Gluck

Soup Passion Soup Bowls

I have been brainstorming some unique dinner buffet displays for my upcoming Fall and Holiday soirees for a while now, so when I was introduced to Villeroy & Boch’s Soup Passion Collection I knew I had found the perfect concept! Who doesn’t love a warm soup in the Fall? And with a few special touches, like unique bowls and specialty noodles, I knew the wow factor would be on point! Villeroy & Boch’s soup collection in particular, is incredibly elegant and sleek {I just love the white porcelain!}, while the functionality is totally nouveau! Take my favorite item, the small soup passion bowl which is actually two small bowls connected at the center, allowing you to serve a bowl of soup on one side and then place crackers or bread for dipping on thVilleroy & Boch Soup Passione other! Read on for how I styled my bar as well as my soup go-to’s this season!

To create my soup bar display, I lined my collection of bowls down my buffet table in my dining room. To create a Fall vibe I suspended an autumn wreath over my mirror, placed two large white faux pumpkins on one end of the buffet, and a long glass vase full of pumpkins and pinecones on the other end. I swapped classic white candles for ones with a texture of natural birch. And for flowers I filled a Villeroy & Boch white Numa vase with Kale Brassica!

For my soups, I have two new recipes I need to share. The first is a healthy butternut squash soup from my friend BeWellwithArielle.com – a tad sweet because of the syrup and almond milk rather than cream! Find the recipe on this health guru’s website here. I placed this soup in asia bowls which come with a small tray that I filled with crackers and sprigs of rosemary for color! Then my classic vegetable soup was a hit because I served it with festive Fall Leaf noodles; a crowd pleaser for adults and kids! {Note: these noodles are just as great with pasta sauce!} The Villeroy & Boch tureen, which holds up to four bowls of soup and has a lid, is the perfect place to store soup while guests decide which route to choose!

I hope this inspires a new selection of foods and tools to utilize at your next dinner party.
