This is great way to create a "wow" effect for a special event by using some items that you have around the house. I love the layered look of using a white linen place mat, green dinner plate, vintage clear cake plate, linen/cotton napkins and a picture frame with a quote or your guest's name.

Dust off those cake stands and use them!
