While you are decorating with fresh flowers and setting the table, candles are a must to set an intimate feel.  We recommend scented candles from D.L. & Company in the main room and bathrooms.  The scents set a tone.

But, on the dinner table and in the kitchen, the scents should be coming from the food.  So we love the lightly soft scent from the incredibly sexy WICK’ed Pillar Candles.  They give an amazing look and lighting.

When guests arrive, a perfect host offers their guest a drink.  We recommend opening a couple of bottles of wine before your guests arrive to make it easier for you.  Instead of leaving the bottles open, use Double Cross Wine Stoppers.  They look amazing and sexy.

When John Ransom entertains at his home, he loves using Baccarat Crystal stemware.  They may cost some $$, but they are worth the investment.  Timeless

Appetizers are next, and a really great idea is a sushi plate.  Think about using D.L. and Company trays, plates and Double Cross Chopsticks.

I am sure you have your favorite meal planned to serve your guests.  Wine, food, laughter and friends make the perfect night.
