    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.

    We choose a theme and work to making it prominent. We color coordinate as needed.

    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.

  • 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.

    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!
