Simple Dinner Party Inspiration // Entertaining

Wednesday, June 4, 2014



Here is some eye candy inspiration for you- how to host a simple outdoor dinner party.  This was a fun party we had for my friend's birthday during our annual girls trip up in a cute apple-country farm town.  I was so inspired by the whimsy-ness of this place I knew it would be a great backdrop to a beautiful outdoor dinner party.  Here are some of the simple details I put together to make this night special.





Table:

 Burlap/Lace/Fabric extras for table covering.  Small cuts of a tree (our christmas tree actually), glitter mason jars, candles and sparkly vase filler sprinkled around along with a tin pitcher filled with clippings from around the property.  


Up high in the trees:

I really wanted to hang twinkle lights, but alas the extension cord I packed was not long enough, so I had to improvise.  I had brought a bunch of glitter jars with battery powered lights, so I used string I had to make them hang from the tree to add some sparkle and shine.  This was a happy accident, I loved this way more! I also had bunting I hung around the trees.


Place settings: 

I used the serving ware that came with the rental, but I added a little pizzazz with glitter name badges and candy button napkin rings.  The candy buttons are very nostalgic and added just the right amount of color and fun to the table...
bonus: a little dessert before dinner ;)



This is me and the lady of the day! Happy Birthday Stephanie!
 I am glad we had an excuse to throw a party, thanks for being the inspiration!
