Peeps© for Easter! This is so much fun, it just makes you smile.  The Peeps© placemats are and table accents are each sold in packs of 12.  The table accents add lots of color, and you can write your guest's name across the purple ribbon. (That's a great activity for the kids!)

Beautiful heart mugs, little trays, and napkins.  We have a lovely assortment of Valentine extras to make someone's day special!

Sometimes you only need a hint of spring to perk up your winter table.  We added a floral napkin to this place setting and it instantly makes it feel more like spring!

Add height and style to your table or buffet with metal plate stands.  These stands hold salad plates or dinner plates, depending on their diameter, or even pasta bowls.
