Are you planning a confirmation party? If you have a coffee set only for six people, don't worry. Borrow cups and plates from your neighbours or friends. Choose similar colours and shapes, and they will blend nicely together. Don't make separate piles, but mix different cups and plates with each other. The same goes with forks and spoons, if you wrap the cutlery into nice paper napkins, which match your table setting. If you don't want to cover the beautiful surface of your table with a large tablecloth, you can bring colour to the table with a couple of table runners. Add a few matching flowers to give the last touch. See our recipes for delicious treats.
