Boy, will he be surprised when I do.
While I was at the Salvation Army Thrift Store last weekend, I came upon this set of cake plates for $9.99. Yep. Doesn't this look like a gem that can only be unearthed by the likes of Eddie Ross? Can't you see it on one of his delightful tablescapes? And at this price, I couldn't snatch them up quickly enough.
LonnyMag, Eddie and Jaithan highlight five entertaining tips. I've synopsized them for your consumption:
- Keep things simple.
- Know the measurements of your home and carry swatches when you are trying to match up items for it.
- Preparation is key. (MY FAVE!)
- Go to Bergdorf's to educate yourself on stylish pieces then high-tail it to flea markets and thrift stores to replicate the more expensive looks. (NO, this is MY FAVE)
- To achieve a WOW! factor, set the table just before guests arrive.
Have you a signature serving piece? What is it?
