This white platter is coming in so handy. I bought it just thinking it would be great for cheese and crackers. Glad that I did.
You can see sand in the bottom of the candle holder. It catches the wax drips. If you are tired of dealing with wax drips on candle bases, try sand.
I think the platter needs greenery with red berries to complete this look. Keeping this picture in my file of table ideas will remind me of how to start and then I can finish the details when I have company.
I could not believe that this little platter held these three hurricanes perfectly. This opens up lots of possibilities. I could also just use these hurricanes as vases and have a grouping of fresh flowers.
I hope you have enjoyed looking at a few of my ideas. It is always good to have some ideas in your back pocket for when you entertain...and need to set up a pretty buffet table.

Please share how you "arrange" people and food for special occasions in your home. Are you showing your children and grandchildren the nuances of proper table etiquette for social situations? What types of things are you teaching them? I think it is important to pass these things down to younger generations. So, to wind up this story...my daughter set a perfectly proper table with her Wedgewood china and her grandmother's silver. I am so proud of her, and my son. Mom's are like that. :-)
As always, I very much appreciate your spending a few minutes of your day with me.
Until the next time,
