Serve With Style

A unique and unforgettable dinner party may reside right in your own home, waiting to be shown off to the world. You might not have realized it at first, but the table cloths, fine china, and expensive cutlery that you set aside for special occasions, should definitely be used when guests are over.

#1: The Table

Bring out your finest table cloth, or show a flash of color, and keep a color scheme in your dinner table with bright colored cloth. Add a floral centerpiece, and just take a couple flowers from your garden, or even use an assortment of candles.

#2: The Places

Use your best china, cutlery and utensils, and glassware to entertain your guests, and feed them too.

#3: The Napkins

You can fold your napkins however you would like. You could merely fold them into a triangle, or go all out like the photo above illustrates. Either way, the napkins are going to end up used and dirty.
