When talking about using disposable tableware for guests, it absolutely does not mean boring, flimsy, ugly paper plates! TableLuxe has a variety of sturdy, elegant, plastic-ware that looks beautiful and modern! Here I used their white square dinner plate and dessert plate, white tipped flatware and wine glass with a stemless glass as a water glass. Tips: turn your plates on an angle for a unique place setting, tie your napkins in a knot and insert the flatware into the knot, throw down a placemat for a pop of color!
Easy table runner idea: place a table runner down the table and add fresh eucalyptus and roses down the center. That’s win number 2! It’s a statement piece and takes about 5 minutes or less to create.
Two easy appetizer ideas: cucumber and manchego cheese topped with everything but the bagel seasoning and spinach, tomato, mozzarella bites. Toss the mozzarella balls in pesto before putting them on the toothpick. Both of these apps can be made well ahead of time and kept in the fridge until guests arrive! Win number 3! Here I used TableLuxe’ mini appetizer plates!
Sitting outdoors in the Fall is always my favorite! Adding a bit of cozy with soft lighting makes it even better! Who else loves dining outdoors?
