If you're like me who prefers to host intimate dinner parties instead of going out, you are going to need party essentials to make things easier for you, keep everything organized, and prettify your tabletop at the same time. I started building our dinnerware collection for guests when we moved into our own house a few years ago-- after we threw a small party and had to borrow extra utensils and dinnerware from my parents because we only had a 12pc dinner set then.

One way to showcase your personal style is through your home decor and that includes your dinnerware-- from the elaborateness of how you set them up, to the finer details like the design, color, and overall theme. And contrary to popular belief, starting any collection is actually very easy and it doesn't necessarily have to be very expensive. In our case, I bought our party essentials one piece at a time. If one has a big budget to spend on an entire collection, then collecting would be very easy. But if you're like me who likes to take things slow depending on budget, I only buy a piece or two, making sure it (mix-and) matches with our overall theme perfectly. If there is one thing though that I learned from hoarding Real Living magazines, it is that, to always buy that decor which you think would fit perfectly in your home, literally and figuratively. Haha!

1. APOTHECARY JARS. I love them! I love them because they're so versatile! For the holidays, fill them up with acorns, or Christmas balls and battery-operated string lights, and use them as center pieces. Fill them up with sweet treats like mallows, cookies, or chocolates and use them to make a candy bar. Use them to make terrariums, use them as fruit stands (because why not!), or even as a candle holder! The possibilities are endless!

2. CAKE STAND WITH GLASS COVER. I believe every home should have one. It makes everything look fancy-- even store-bought cakes!

3. CERAMIC DESSERT STAND. They're far more better than the cardboard ones because they're sure to last longer, making them better investments. And please don't get me started with the color!

7. MASON JAR SET WITH LID, STRAW & WOODEN TRAY. For all your picnic style gatherings, one must have mason jars to complete the overall feel and look. When the mason jars trend came about, I ordered ours from a Manila supplier. Too happy that Metro has them already, that way, I no longer have to pay for shipping and I'm guaranteed that they're not chipped or broken.
