We all know I love a good dinner party. We are fortunate that both our parents get along, so several times throughout the year we have them over for a little dinner party (see my last party with them here). I often think to myself that having a dinner party is my adult equivalent of playing house (BTW my favorite pastime as a child). I love planning the menu and setting the table. Each time I try to vary what my table looks like – it’s like a game to me.
This time I chose to mix a couple different sets to get a unique table. I got these fun new Ikat napkins from Pottery Barn for Christmas – aren’t they cute (and so updated for PB?). So I knew I wanted to incorporate them. Then I pulled out my wedding china as the dinner plate, and mixed in my Grandmother’s bowl for our soup course.
As for the flowers, since I had so many fun colors already on the table I went to Whole Foods to create a fun whimsical centerpiece incorporating all the same colors. I just love these fun little green fillers – don’t you (don’t know what they are called but I thought they added a nice touch of whimsy).
