How Many People Are Coming to Dinner?!?!
I live in a 1,200-1,800 (depending on what counts as living space) ranch, so I keep my entertaining to a manageable amount of people, but there are times when I have more coming than what I have service for. I have a place setting of 6 for my everyday use, and I have china for 12—but who wants to lug that out, and then I have a smattering of other pieces. I keep everything in solids and white, so that they mix and match well. To make it look purposeful and not scream—I’m still working through the remnants of college, alternate the plates to create a pattern. Just go with it!
