Parties to Pretties – A Rustic Tabletop

by Emmadime

I have been playing with the idea of throwing a small dinner party once a week – for good friends, new friends, whoever wants to come! In turn, I have been keeping my peepers open for pretty table tops and setting ideas. I recreated this rustic look in an attempt to gather some inspiration and prepare for my first dinner!!

    The belts as napkin rings are so rad. I love this inspiration picture. xo

  2. None of my friends ever have dinner parties, sounds like I need to take the initiative. What a gorgeous collection of inspiration you have here! Love the belt around the napkins!

    Very pretty, I’m in the middle of planning a “winter in the forest” cocktail party.

    This table is so gorgeous. I had friends over for brunch yesterday, and now I want to go back in time and reset the table.
