Setting Everyone’s Places

Find clever, unique ways to personalize each table setting. A glitzy gold frame with your gals’ names in gold hand calligraphy and pink agate coasters double as favors to take home.

There’s no such thing as too much champagne! Pop open some bubbly and mix a sprig of thyme and a few blackberries for a delicious Blackberry Thyme Sparkler.
