I'm having a (small) dinner (birthday) party for my husband next weekend. Probably will have between 7-10 people, including us two. Here's my dilemma...I only have 6 matching dinner plates (solid white), and then I have 2 china dinner plates (white with blue design with thin band of gold at the edge), then I have a few really casual white/blue plates. I have the same situation with glassware, silverware, etc....well, you get the picture.
I really can't afford to go out and buy any more plates, etc. Is it okay to use all these mismatched items? This is not a "formal" dinner, and we are not pretentious people, lol.
