I’m having an informal dinner party with the few family members and a few friends and I don’t have a complete matching set of dishes. So thought to pull out some of the ones I’ve been dying to use. I have some chargers here, that I got when I was in Paris, really inexpensive in the flee market and I thought would use that as a charger and then a set of plates. So, I’ve six of each of this and I’ve mix them all together then some nice napkins. Now, I have a lot of napkins and then whole idea here is to get creative and to pick things that you think look good together and then the little bread plate, floral as an accent to finish it all off. Creative and eclectic and really fun and pretty, that’s why I’m going for. Then, we’ve got a little dish here for olive oil because being Italian we all love our olive oil so everybody has there own dish for olive oil and then steam ware. Now, steam ware I always have a trouble because I break glasses all the time. So, for the water glass I was thinking a nice little colored glass and then traditional wine glasses to go with it, so the short for the water and the tuff of the wine and all the colors work together so it looks really pretty. And then finally, so that everybody knows where they should be seated I have little place cards here and on one side they have the persons name like my husband Todd and then on the other side I have his favorite hubby or passion, kite surfing. It’s a great conversation starter and it guarantees that the nights kind of full of laughs and lots of fun. And you know what I can’t wait to get the summer table. And the last one of course is me, and my passion is fashion.
