Tips:

When you’re setting up for a party, your décor doesn’t have to match. Mismatched place settings can add character to your table and there’s no rule that says your glassware needs to be fancy.

If you want to shop local but you don’t have the time to hit the neighborhood shops, you can still do your shopping at local companies – just order online and opt for companies that will deliver.

If you’re hosting a party, one way to keep cost down is to offer one simple beverage, like a special cocktail or a versatile wine, and then ask guests to bring their favorite beverage to share.
