Elevate Your Entertaining

THINKING outside of the box while entertaining is what makes most parties have a "wow" factor. When ordinary entertainers see a cake plate, they think of a boring round, 2 tiered cake. We at PLACESETTING would never look at this picture and think that! We think Brie, Sushi, we see a bud vase in the center, with small hor de vour's piled around. While planning your next spread of food...Please elevate, add dimension, and dont let your entertaining run the risk of being "flat"...In the most casual entertaining, you could grab a bunch of green grapes, a wheel of gourmet cheese (sold in the deli section of any grocery store) and a box of them on this stand and your company will think you went all out for their arrival! Another great wedding gift that a bride will actually use! Glass plates are priced at $45.00.

Please bring in a copy of this post of the cake stand and recieve 10% off Good Through March 30th-April 4th.

Not Just Another Pretty VASE

Ask any newly-wed how many times she's pulled out her fine china and her cut glass/crystal vases to set her table with, and I would bet you would find very few that could say even "once". If it's one thing that PLACESETTING has a reputation for, it's offering affordable wedding gifts for today's bride. Gifts that they can entertain with NOW...In fact, our mission at market, is to scour the 900+ showrooms for timeless (and affordable) gifts to offer our customers for their entertaining well as those of our registered brides. We loved it when we found these tear-drop shaped pastel glass vases. Vases sure to be used right away by a new bride. Filled with a bunch of white tulips from your local grocery store..these would look fabulous in a grouping in the center of your dining table, placed in your guest bathroom, or empty as a piece of art displayed in a book shelf.
Bottom line: Cut crystal vases, fresh shaped vases in!

Vases range from $32.95-$38.00
