The dining room is set for dinner for four.
First I started with silver charges from Target. I then added my white dishes from Chris
Maddens collection found at JC Penneys. I was lucky to find 8 place settings of the vintage
transferware at an antique shop. The silver trees, mirrors, candles and balls are all from Dollar Tree
and I found the candle holders at a local junk shop.
We are expecting approximately 30 guests for a Holiday Open House this Sunday.
I have the table set in the Morning room for the party. Now I just need to
add food and beverages.
When I began preparing for the party I realized I did not have enough serving
trays. I first went to a couple of the discount stores looking for trays that would
fit the silver theme and not break the bank. I came up with nothing but plastic
trays that just would not do for this party. I decided to stop by a couple of thrift
stores and what did I find but several heavy silverplated trays. Perfect! The three
plastic trays would have cost me $10.00 and thrift store finds cost me less than
$6.00 and they look great on the table.
