Place Settings... Mix and Match

I love exquisite, matched table settings with china, crystal and silver. I am however more likely to go completely informal on you these days with nobody home but me.

For years, I have been mixing and matching plates to make dinner parties both appealing and fun. Often, guests talk as much about my table as they do the food.

I have so many unusual plates that I have collected over the year. Where do I find them? Garage sales, yard sales, resale stores and sometimes even Target.

I also love Anthropology because they carry some of the most amazing dinnerware. They also have great sales and I seldom buy anything unless it is on sale.

Magazines and cookbooks will give you so many suggestions on how to mix up your table settings.

Be creative and send me some of your photos. I’ll post them.

Bon Appetit!
