I bake all the time, and after the preparation and assembly and decoration, the last thing I want to do is dive into a sink of batter bowls, dried frosting tips, and sticky crumbly side plates.

    I usually choose a color scheme but do not get too much into the coordinating of everything.I am more worried about the food and my guests having a great time.

    I love to go to the fabric store and get fabric for a tablecloth, and napkins. I also love to coordinate with fresh flowers and of course, matching plates, napkins, etc.!

    I make my special occasions perfectly coordinated by going with a simple clean look. I try not to over do it. it keeps things neat and orderly.

  4. Sarah L says

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a coordinated dinner party. I like white napkins and my white dinnerware. Other than that, I’m no Martha Stewart.
    Thanks for the contest.

    Ilove to find deals at our local party store for table decorations that match to the place settings. I love to browse magazines for ideas also.

    My wife visits websites and read magazines to get ideas. She coordinates by color, the decorations, placemats and linens.

    I have made several rose cakes, and they are always a hit no matter what colour I do.
    They go over so well and everyone thinks I am a genius! ( Little do they know).
    And little Olivia outdoes the cakes! She is gorgeous!
