The Where To Find It pages provide ideas on where to find interesting and hard to find items that dress up your serving table and make parties parties more fun, whether they’re elegant or casual occasions. We’ve divided the pages into groups to make it easier to find suggestions for what you’re looking for. We’ve listed actual stores as well as links for the online locations to find the products featured (sometimes the product’s category pages), and a few companies that only sell online.
Pages include serveware (appetizer picks to serving platters & bowls), dinnerware (appetizer/dessert plates, dinner plates & bowls that can be bought individually, and sets; includes “deckware”, [melamine] too), drinkware (individual wine, beer & cocktail glasses and sets plus barware accessories like coasters or wine charms), and decorations (candles, paper plates/cups and theme party decorations). We include lots of pictures. Some pictures are of specific items, and some are representative of what the stores offer (comments under the pictures tell which is the case). If you have a source you’d like to share, we’d love to know. Please email or call with the information.
Contents for these pages change with the seasons.
The Ready Made Ingredients page includes ideas on where to find ingredients that can kick up your presentation and save you time. We add to this page as we find ingredients we can recommend.
We hope these suggestions will be helpful, even if all they do is spark your imagination about having a party.
Have fun seeing what’s out there.
