But with the new baby and just moving into our new house, many of our entertaining supplies (platters, vases, etc.) are still in boxes! So we improvised- here are a few ways to make a party look oh-so-chic with oh-so-little time and stress.
Class up your cutlery by placing it in a series of stemless wine glasses.
Spontaneous floral arrangements- I ran outside with a pair of clippers and collected some lilacs. A few went into a stemless wine glass- and the others into empties from my guests at our party!
Create cozy seating areas for comfy conversation- I know I'm breaking a rule by squishing my furniture up against the fireplace (keep it off!), but a good party calls for rule breaking!
