Planning the Perfect Dinner Party: Table Decor and Atmosphere

Ask yourself, what do I want my guest to walk away with when the party is over?  How do I keep the party interesting? What kind of feeling/mood do I want to invoke? What do I want my guests to experience?   What story do I want to tell my guests?  When hosting your holiday party or any party personal style and taste should always be front and center.   One way to achieve this is to think outside of the box.

Create a theme that will help keep youfocused.   Choose a color palette that will suffuse the room.   Choose a design that is obtainable.  Your ultimate goal is to take your guests on a journey and give them an experience that they will always remember.   A great way to keep the party interesting while giving your guests the illusion of being in multiple places is to transition your guests from one room to the next by giving each room its own personality. 

Your décor will be determined by your theme and dishes being served.  Before embarking on a shopping spree try using items around the house as décor elements.  You will be surprised at what you can find on a shelf or in a closet.   Other basic décor staples you can’t go wrong with are candles (all kinds – tapers, votives, floaters, etc.); small/compact floral arrangements or fresh rose petals.
