Besides the obvious of good conversation and delicious food there are a few other elements that I believe are a must for entertaining. No matter if you’re just entertaining one friend or a group of twenty, the elements you always need are fresh flowers, soft lighting and beautiful plates.

When it comes to flowers I don’t discriminate, I love cheap “filler” flowers just as much as an in-season peony and their ability to bring nature indoors. Let’s be honest, the best kind of lighting comes from the flame of a candle, everyone’s skin looks like a Snapchat filter with candlelight!

Now there’s something about a good plate… whether it’s a mixed, matched antique set from your grandmother, a fun print on a paper plate or a multi-purpose modern day porcelain that’s dishwasher and microwave safe. These B By Brandie plates exactly the latter. Their colors are bold, their patterns fun and they’re perfect for mix and matching. Think of them as a modern day heirloom that you’ll have for years but use on the daily. I already am trying to decide which pattern I’ll buy next!
