Step 1: The Centerpiece
Candles create a necessary ambiance at any posh party. No candlestick holders? No problem! Take the label off a couple of soup cans and turn them upside down, that shiny tin will create a beautiful luminescent glow when the lights are down.
Step 2: The Place Settings
Plates, they come from many places and matching them is so boring. Matching is for people with no imagination and there are people practically giving away pretty plates at garage sales. Forks are a waste of time, chicken and ribs were meant to be eaten with the forks God gave you on the ends of your hands. Spoons are for the jello salads and knives are helpful for spreading butter.
Those pretty little yellow place mats are shop rags which can double as a napkin if you really need one, they are quite absorbent.
