Today I am bringing to you my swanky party tip for the day. My Swanky party tip is for place settings. Whether you are planning a dinner party at your home, or a shower or wedding be creative and your guests will notice, its all in the details. Your place settings do not, I repeat do not have to match to look upscale and elegant. Mix it up a little be creative and have fun! Do a little thrift store or antique store hoping and pick up individual pieces. The key here is to have a common theme in the pieces. Try all the same color, or style, or pattern something of that nature and then buy different pieces. You want something to tie it all in in the end. So if you are going to go ecletic on the plates use the same napkins, place cards and glasses. Or mix it up on the place cards, or napkins, or glasses and use the same plates. Just have fun with it and remember to choose a common theme. Here's one that is a great for a sweet shabby chic bridal shower, or even easter. Three different china patterns are combined together to creat a swanky table setting!
