Entertaining and Home Living Essentials for my Organizing Monday

I found two storage solutions that will organize your life as well as your house. The first part covers essentials for entertaining. I imagine them as nice wedding gifts.


An elegant buffet set makes a great wedding gifts. The 49-Piece Admiral Buffet Set provides 8 ceramic dinner plates plus 8 salad plates with platinum rims, 32-piece 18/10 stainless steel flatware set, and a nickel-plated rack to keep it all organized. The pretty and handy. The buffet set is now on sale plus today and tomorrow, Horchow ships orders over $150 for free. In fact, Horchow’s free shipping offer expires March 25, 2009, at 6:00 A.M. CT.

Other wedding weddings at Horchow could be the Wavy Leaf Embroidered Table Linens and the Juliska Covered Candy Dishes. Both items would see many years of use. There are all new arrivals.

Simplify the Family Life

Every household needs a message center and a place to store the keys and small paper. You could add a name tag over each key hook.

estetisk writing and magnetic board

I found the three-in-one ESTETISK on my last visit to IKEA. The front panel hides a key storage. It does more than that since it is painted with a magnetic chalk board paint.
