FRIENDS FOOD FUN




When we first met, we had a lot in common. However, as we became friends we realized that we had so many similarities, it's crazy. One of the many things we both share is our love for dishes!! We both have many many sets of dishes from 4 place settings to 20 place settings. We even have a few sets the same (that we bought before we knew each other). It is always fun and festive to decorate your dinner table with fabulous dishes, and they don't always have to be 'real'. Target, the dollar store, Walmart all have a great selection of plastic dishes for good prices. Your whole table doesn't have to be exactly the same either. Remember, you can always just purchase a few pieces and mix them with solids or other coordinating sets. When you have people over for a party or dinner don't forget to add a party favor next to each plate. For the 4th of July use fireworks; a bundle of sparklers or buy a big assortment pack, put a few of them together, tie with ribbon or place in a cellophane bag and leave each person their own bundle of fireworks to use after dinner! You still have a few days left, so make your 4th Over The Tipsy Top by dressing up your dinner table!!!!!!!

Love, The Tipsy Girls

You've justified my need for more shopping and for buying more dishes. Thank you.

My husband always teases me that I have too many dishes and some I only use once a year. I love that you have the same weakness...buying cute dishes to decorate a table!
