4. More glamour – from faux fur to sparkle accents with shrugs, stunning brooches, bejeweled decorative candle holders. Add a touch of Lux!
5. More emphasis on sophisticated presentation – sleek serving trays and elegant elevated displays to dress up these special events. Add unexpected items to make it unique (pearls, crystals, antique photos and paper.)
