The holidays are here and now is the time to shine as hostess of the house! Here are a few tips for throwing a dazzling dinner party: 1) Thoughtful and unexpected touches are key for a memorable fete. Place cards like these gold foil cabana stripe beauties will make all your guests feel like the guest of honor and a dinner bell, a unicorn dinner bell ;), to signal that it's time to take your seat is just the right amount of ridiculous to aid in the encouragement of tomfoolery!
2) Choose a simple color palette and go bold with a few decor elements to create a stylish tablescape without making the setting feel stuffy and cluttered. We went with a festive pink and gold combination as a sassy take on a holiday color scheme and looked to peonies from our friends at Tree Masters, bright linens from Zara, simple chargers, and classic Kate Spade china (from Roxy's wedding!) to make an easy yet elegant statement. 3) For the centerpiece, choose a low arrangement that won't block lines of sight and a boxwood garland adds a touch of festive to our otherwise anytime dinner party. We bought ours in New York City's flower district, but you can also buy the boxwood garland online here.
