Entertaining with Ease

One of my favorite things to do on the weekend is to have people over for dinner.  It can often times save money by foregoing restaurants and bars, gives you a reason to clean up the house and more than anything, provide for a night of good conversation with people you love.  When it comes to entertaining, I like to have pieces that are easy to use, but still have character.

I like to mix and match my pieces to create a unique feel, which also allows me to trade out new finds with ones that may have broken (I have a clumsy streak) or add in a new piece I don’t have yet.

Here are some Serveware options I’d love to entertain with:
