Entertaining: Decorating using all discount store items! Challenge accepted.

I was challenged by a good friend to plan a table from dishes to decor using cheap items from a discount store, such as Garden Ridge or Christmas Tree Shops. I accepted the challenge and chose to dress my table using items from Christmas Tree Shops.

source link It’s October now, and many of us are planning our holiday parties and dinners. I have a large arsenal of entertaining serve ware and dishes to choose from, but not everyone does. The husband would disagree, but I can always use more serve ware. If I were to go shopping at this moment, here is what I would choose.

5. White porcelain dinner ware, Christmas Tree Shops ($4.99-6.49)

Plain white dinner ware is very versatile and it goes a long way. We have formal china at our house and we have every day dinner ware that we use. If you’re having a big dinner party, and you’re OCD like me, everything has to match or you’ll lose your mind. This is a cheaper option for purchasing a large set of matching dinner ware so you won’t have to use your every day dishes.

These look a lot like my actual flatware set, Lenox Opal Innocence.  $20 for a four-piece place setting isn’t bad. I could get enough flatware to service my dinner party for $100, and it would still look like I’d paid a lot more.

12″ White Ceramic Serving Bowl, $12.99


1.25 Gallon Yorkshire Mason Drink Dispenser

2. Table Linens,  Paisley Basketweave Tablecloth, $12.99

Cotton Hemstitch Napkins, Set of four, $5.99

1. Decor: I would just go with something simple, so it wouldn’t compete with the table cloth. What about a white pitcher with white  flowers like this one?
