*Shop Smart--Being an amazing hostess doesn’t have to be expensive. These ideas for shopping smart will help extend your party budget.
Find items with dual uses. This galvanized wine caddy can meet that need. It can hold wine, water or other drink service, or florals. It can help fill in as a center piece if you add florals to both sides and can be accessed from either side since there is no back or front really.
Another good item with dual purpose is this wreath. It can be on your door to great guests OR act as a unique center piece.
Stonebridge Collective has lots of affordable items to choose from. These cement vases come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and are very inexpensive. The ones shown here range in price from $4.50 to $17. Another easy way to shop smart is to shop Seasonal items that may be on sale. When you find deals…STOCK UP.
Risers and serving trays are another way to shop smart. Wire or galvanized, round or triangle, they are interesting visually, they can be used in several different ways, and mostly, every price point is great!
