    Do you have that one chore that you simply detest? For me, it’s washing the dishes. I would rather iron every single one of my husband’s shirts with military precision than do dishes. Rose Cake Party Especially baking dishes. 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. Rose Cake PartySo at my most recent get together I decided to change things up a bit.  I embraced easy. Sitting alongside my beautiful crystal cake stands covered in rosette cakes I placed Chinet tableware.

    I used their new side plates, silverware and cups. I also used a dinner plate for an extra special purpose, but I will show you that in just a second.  (Can you find it in the picture at the top?)   Chinet New Cut CrystalIt all fit together quite beautifully.  The sunny day, the shabby chic cakes, the glass cake stands, and the side plates, utensils, and cups created a lovely and magical setting.

    I gave Olivia a cup to play with and she would not let it go! OliviaShe was the belle of the ball with her ruffles and chubby cheeks, sipping out of her crystal glass.

    It’s basically the baby version of Cinderella. Green Rosette Cake on Chinet New Cut Crystal And what do you think of my new cake stand?  I wanted the cakes to be at different heights on my table, so I used traditional cake stands for the pink and yellow rosette cakes and a Chinet plate for the green rosette cake.

        I use the good china that I inherited from my mom and add fresh flowers.

        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 like to put a special table favor and I coordinate colors

        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 always have a themed party because it helps me focus on the event.

        I make occasions perfectly coordinated by matching colors.

        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.

        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 first decide who I’m inviting and then go from there.

        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.

        For the adults I do use real plates and wine glasses

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

        I make a plan and stick to it.

        I do themed parties every year to keep it fun and interesting 🙂

        These are beautiful! Love this! I will have to try it for my next get together.

        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!

        Hey, how do you make this big rose at the top of orange cake? Same as normal rose with 1M tip?
