If you’re like me and have difficultly dressing your table for special occasions then this definitely is the post for you. I love classic china like the Antique White place settings by Mikasa, they are timeless and can be dressed up in so many different ways. White plates are a must have for any dining room table. Whether you are having a holiday party or brunch with your girls you can style your table to match! Make sure to put some on your wishlist for Santa this year and cross your fingers that you have been good!
Here are some items that are great to layer into your Antique White table for a fancier night — such as Christmas or New Years. I especially love bringing on the glitz by adding these platinum accented plates and glasses!
I love getting together with my best girls, and these pieces give my Antique White table a fun pop of color! Don’t you just love that Parchment Serving Set? (Hint: The cake packaging makes this a fantastic hostess gift.)
This week Mikasa is giving one reader a fabulous pre-holiday gift of eight Antique White 5 Piece Place Settings! What a great start to this merry season! To enter is simple. You need to follow Mikasa on both Pinterest and Facebook then leave a comment telling me you did so.
For an extra entry follow Love and Lavender on Pinterest.
The winner will be randomly chosen on Friday, December 13th (finally a reason to look forward to Friday the 13th!)

I love color! Growing up I painted my room one vibrant color after another! This wedding is definitely full of color–the floral arrangements are such a great contrast against the neutral backdrop of he wooded setting!
Love her floral crown!
Sweet and simple!
Big Sur has to be one of my favorite wedding venues. You can’t beat the stunning views, beautiful surroundings and what seems to be always fabulous weather! Haley and Brett kept the decor simple and let the natural setting shine. Her dress is killer—she looks gorgeous in her Vera Wang gown!
Here is what Haley said: As native Chicagoans, we decided to get married in Big Sur as an homage to our early lives together in Santa Monica, a time filled with weekend camping trips and explorations of California’s northern coast. An intimate celebration for friends and family, our wedding took place at sunset on Point 16. Simple and classic décor enhanced the cliff’s natural beauty and flowers by Kate Healey complemented the lush green surroundings.
Guests dined on locally sourced sirloin and whitefish, served buffet style by A Big Sur Affair. Glass vases filled with candles and lanterns strung overhead illuminated the night sky as guests danced and sang along to the tunes of DJ Britt Govea’s vinyl records. The roaring fire pit provided guests a warm spot to mix and mingle while snacking on the Brett’s favorite dessert – ice cream sundaes – as the evening drew to a close.
I love shoes—what girl doesn’t? So when I was introduced to Menbur I had to pick my jaw off the ground! The best word that I can come up with to describe their shoes is stunning, but really that doesn’t even come close—I wanted one of each! For those of you looking for presents that will have the recipient squealing with delight you have found the place! Not only do they have boots, heels, and flats but they also have some gorgeous handbags — from clutches to totes! I put together a list of some of my favorite items they carry for under $125.
Don’t miss out on getting some of these fabulous items—and if you do get one for your friend don’t forget about yourself too!
I’ve been getting a lot of emails regarding the free downloads and fonts to use. So I thought this would be a perfect time to give you all a list of my favorite free script fonts for wedding invitations. There are a lot of fonts I love that you have to pay for, but for those of you that are on a budget these are great options!
