My Five Favorites - Entertaining Accessories


 I can't even believe it's October, and as much as I hate that the year has flown by I do 
love everything about fall! Entertaining is right up there at the top of my list, and I'm
 in the mood for some fall cooking, aka comfort food in my book, and get-togethers with
 friends and family.
 This month for My Five Favorites we're sharing Entertaining Accessories,
I'm sure my pals will have some some great ideas for me to add to my inventory!  

Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

I'm thrilled to introduce our guest this month, Kelley @ Kelley Nan. She couldn't be more
perfect for our topic ~ her tablescape skills are unmatched, and her style...stunningly elegant!
Oh, and she makes it look effortless! 
It's easy to access her beautiful collection of tablescape photos here!
How gorgeous is this Fall Table she put together this year?!!  


Here are a few of my go to entertaining items that I couldn't live without:

#1
Domed Cake Plate
A cake plate isn't just for cake ~ this is my favorite to take anything up a notch!
 Actually, years ago our tenants left it behind and gifted it to me when they moved out of
 state. :) I saw this very similar one, the price is CRAZY inexpensive and 5 Star Reviews!


I use mine for everything ~ cakes, pies, pastries, breads. 
It's great for brunch items like quiche, or ramekins of yogurt or granola.
It even makes sandwiches feel a bit more gourmet.


#2
Simple DIY Table Runner
I love using a fabric table runner to add a pretty dose of color and pattern.
 It couldn't be more simple, just a yard or so of fabric, with the edge ironed under.
The black and white stripe fabric is an IKEA print. 
** I spy a cake plate!**

In addition to the fabric table runner, 
a collection of tall candles always make a statement!

#3
Kate Spade Salt & Pepper Shakers
These were a gift from a friend a few years ago, and I loved them so much I've
since gifted them as well.  
Fairmount Park Stripe & Dot Salt & Pepper Set are my favorite to give your table
that eclectic flair. The black, white and gold color combination and simple bold 
print easily mix with other serving piece patterns.


#4
White Hotel Dinner Napkins
I've had my same white dinner napkins for years, maybe 15 or more. You all 
know I love a bargain but it's worth spending more for quality here, they've been
bleached a zillion times, are perfectly square and still look like new. Mine are
from William Sonoma, but I'm wondering if the quality has changed over the years,
some of the reviews are iffy.  
  


#5
Mini Mason Jars
Everything is more fun served in a cute little mason jar, right? They're ideal for
 individual appetizers and desserts. I found mine at Walmart,
 I have 24 of the 4 oz jelly jars, and 24 of the 8 oz jelly jars.  
I like to do mini pies in the fall and strawberry shortcakes for summer BBQs. 





One of my popular posts of the past is how a friend and I have amassed and share
