One year, I hosted a series of Christmas teas. I don’t own a set of formal dishes so I borrowed some from a friend. Just that simple. If you don’t have something you need for your celebration, ask around to see where you might borrow the needed items. Perhaps relatives or friends that are coming to your house would lend you what you need. Remember, people LIKE to contribute to an event. They want to be a part of it, not just spectators. Check with people before you spend ANY money!
