With Thanksgiving a mere 7 days away, I wanted to share a tip for purchasing elegant dinnerware at an affordable price. Even better is that this look is more tailored and unique (which I love).
The average place setting costs around $25 each, totalling $200+ for a table of 8. I was able to get a 8 placesettings (with napkins) for nearly half that cost—at just under $125. Here's what I did:
I used these standard white plates from World Market for the main dish, then added character using fun salad plates. I wanted two different salad plates for even more variety so I chose this one and the birds were on clearance at Dilliards. For napkins I went with these affordable buffet napkins and also bought latte bowls to match my color scheme (not shown).
Together they all look so good! And you can mix & match for any style you want, which is much more fun than having everything the same.
Do you like the variety? Does this make you want to rethink your dinnerware?
Pst...that middle image shows a peek of my Thankgiving garland. It turned out SO lovely—I'll have more on that tomorrow!
