Set the party stage with the focus on mini things with big effect: mini-print napkins, Finnish cordial glassware, teeny stirring spoons, adorable tiny vases, and a row of patterned plants as the centerpiece.

I chose these sweet accessories to tie in with my Mini Party Theme, featuring smaller versions of the norm.

[1] Caspari Pareo Green Cocktail Napkins

Set out mini-patterned napkins for a touch of liveliness. Made of triple-ply tissue printed with non-toxic, water-soluble dyes. These napkins are biodegradable and compostable and made using environmentally-conscious raw materials. Pack of 20. $5.25.

[2] Iittala Ultima Thule Cordial Set

It’s been 100 years since the birth of designer Tapio Wirkkala. In his honor, Iittala has created this set of four mini cordial glasses, one from each decade. The limited-edition gift set includes Tapio (1954), Ultima Thule (1968), Niva (1972) and Kaleva (1980) glasses. $135.

[3] Nagasaki Coffee Spoons from Canvas Home

These adorable spoons were inspired by traditional Japanese shapes and would be excellent servers for grated cheese, lumps of sugar or with mini cups of ice cream. The Matte Black are made of stainless steel with black titanium electroplate. Also available in Matte Gold, Matte Copper, and Stainless Steel. 4.5 inches long. $95 set of 6.

[4] Exotic Angel Plants by Costa Farms

Here’s a new idea for table setting. Instead of doing the standard display of cut flowers, why not line your table with a row of mini plants, and offer them as takeaway gifts for your guests? These Fittonias have a cool, graphic pattern and are great in indirect light and moist soil.

Exotic Angel Plants come in over 400 different varieties and are acclimated for lower light conditions of the home. And, did you know that indoor plants are actually good for your health? Offices with indoor plants have less incidences of headaches, sore throats, and coughs. Plants also reduce mold, bacteria counts and remove harmful VOCs released by common products around the office, including printer toner, carpets, and cleaning products.

[5] Rosenthal Studio Line Mini Vases

You can’t have just one. These animated vases are miniature versions of Rosenthal’s artist-designed classics. Though only three to four inches high, they’ll make a big statement filled with buds and flowering branches, mix and matched. $35 each.
