Parties to Pretties – A Bit of Color!

by Emmadime

Next time you host a dinner party, consider mixing patterns on the table top  -or- use more vibrant ingredients to spice up the color palette! I would have a hard time eating these dishes by Aran because they are so beautifully rich in color. Woo everyone with an unexpected POP of color!!

    These are lovely, I love the way coloured dishes and serving plates can really add to the food- making it so much more of an occasion!

    I LOVE the Herringbone Linen Napkins. These images remind me of spring and summer… long easy nights when you can enjoy dinner and drinks outside under the stars. It is something to look forward to during these last few weeks of winter! (Well, hopefully last few weeks)

    That’s one of the “draw backs” of party planning. It pains you to see people dig into your masterpiece lol.
