I try to use real plates and glassware at many of my parties so that I am not wasting paper goods or spending extra money on plates and napkins. (Don’t get me wrong though… I love a pretty paper item!) However, sometimes using my plain white plates at every event gets boring. I don’t want to go out and buy a ton of new dishes at every event… so, I came up with an easy and non-permanent way to upgrade my party dishes.
— Plates/glassware of choice. I used white dessert plates that I bought at HomeGoods for little money!
— A Sharpie in your color choice (I used gold)
If you want the marks to be permanent then you can cure them in an oven by putting them in a cold oven and then letting it get up to 350˚ F, leave for half an hour then turn the oven off. Let them sit in the oven until cool. I like to then leave them unused for 24 hours. Using a pen made for writing on porcelain, like the Porcelaine 150 pen, will garner more permanent results than a Sharpie.
Follow along this week and next for more of this party, first featured on Pizzazzerie.com! I’ll be featuring a tasty cocktail, an appetizer recipe, a few DIY projects, and some DIY party tips for your NYE party!
