1} L’Objet
A rim of gleaming 24-karat gold encircles this festive platter ($550), which is made of malachite and Limoges porcelain and measures 18 inches in diameter. The design is also offered in plates, cups, and saucers, as well as desk accessories.

2} Cristal de Sèvres
These mouth-blown, hand-cut Vertigo martini glasses from the centuries-old French company have an easy-to-grip stem and come in six colors ($157 each) suited to the season, or in clear crystal ($143 apiece).

3} Kelly Wearstler
The Los Angeles–based designer lends a hand with her Salone tray ($2,275), with bronze handles, and Hand Mobel bottle stopper ($195). These and Wearstler’s legs sculptures, among other objects, are certain to kick-start dinner conversation.

4} Paola Navone
A new line created by the Italian architect and designer for Crate & Barrel ranges from marble-and-aluminum dining tables to cobalt blue rugs. Her Mallorca platters ($19.95 to $34.95), with their oval shape and scalloped edges, are stylish standouts.

5} Robbe & Berking
Founded in 1874, the German company produces flatware that showcases the brand’s adeptness at contemporary styling. The Riva five-piece place setting comes in silver plate (shown, $577) or sterling silver ($1,235).

6} Puiforcat
Splendid enough to add instant sophistication and stable enough to withstand clumsy dinner guests, the Ruban candlesticks (small, $460; large, $650) take their cue from a 1930s design by Jean Puiforcat. Votives and candelabras are also available.

7} Stelton
The Danish company’s Kontra vacuum jug ($269) offers the polished look of fine silver in a practical stainless-steel package. The 1-liter vessel has a pop-up, vacuum-sealed top that helps keep coffee hot and prevent spillage.

8} Ana Meneses
This set from the London-based Meneses promises to hold the gaze of your party guests. Crafted from hand-raised sterling silver, the gilded containers ($4,164 with spoons) have an old-world aura.
