We've always dreamed of spending Christmas with Dolly Parton, and now, thanks to Williams Sonoma, we finally can!

The retailer announced a new collaboration with the iconic entertainer influenced by her own cherished holiday traditions, including her signature sugar cookie mix and a replica gingerbread log cabin reminiscent of her childhood home. Dolly fans of all ages will also be able to celebrate the holidays in style with festive aprons and oven mitts in a patchwork design inspired by the singer's coat of many colors.

Stay up to date on what healthy means now.

The holidays have always been a special time of year for Parton. As a child, the country music legend celebrated Christmas with her parents and 11 brothers and sisters in a small two-room cabin nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. They decorated a tree her father had cut down, then cooked and played music through the holiday season. For Parton, the season is and has always been about faith, fun, food, and family.

These days, Christmas remains the singer's favorite holiday—whether she's on stage singing carols or in the kitchen with her nieces and nephews baking cookies.

"Sharing my families' Christmas traditions is a dream come true, and who better to partner with than Williams Sonoma," Parton said in a news release. "We joined together to create a whole bunch of goodies that will fit in perfectly with your family celebration or get you started on creating new traditions that will last a lifetime."

"My mama always made us feel loved by making us treats in our little mountain cabin around the holidays," the songstress continued. "Now I get to invite all my nieces and nephews and their kids for what we like to call 'cookie night.' It's the perfect way to spend time with the special people on your Christmas list."

Key to Parton's Christmas collection is her Holly Dolly Cookie Baking Kit. Inspired by her songs as well as her childhood Christmases, this 26-piece set includes eight cutters in the shapes of musical notes, guitars, and wreaths as well as 12 icing bags, four decorating tips, a plastic coupler, and storage box.
