You know how some people like to buy new clothes when they’ve got a party or big event coming up? That’s me, but with serving dishes. Whenever we invite people over for a big get-together, I have a really predictable M.O.: Plan. Browse. Buy. Throw party.
Step one is planning out my menu. Step two is making sure I have all the pieces I need to lay everything out for the spread. And when I don’t (or event sometimes when I do), step three is shopping for new entertaining supplies. It’s a problem. An addiction, even. And like many addicts, I love bringing people down with me.
So here are the entertaining essentials I have bought recently, am looking to buy or I already own (and just think they’re awesome). Some are new to shelves, and some are just new to me. News flash: They’re all from one store. It’s my go-to when I’m looking for a little something new to lay out on the dining room table.
(In the interest of full disclosure, this is not a sponsored post. Crate and Barrel is truly one of my favorite home stores, and has been for a long time. It was the first place we registered for our wedding, and the only place I’m not allowed to go on pay day.)
