Dinner Party Tablescape

December 29, 2010 at 8:23 AM 12 comments

Now, you can see my new cage light in action.  What do you think?  It’s larger than life but I like how it’s oversized for the room.  There is nothing like lighting to take center stage in a room.

I changed my tablescape as well because we had another dinner party last night.

The fabric for the table is Hollywood by Alexander Henry

I used the eucalyptus wreath from Trader Joes that has been hanging on our front door to frame out the flowers.

The fabric was tucked under the table for the dinner party so they didn’t have to see the unsightly tattered ends.

It was tough to get a good picture since it was gloomy gray day but you get the idea for my dinner party tablescape.  I drove down to the South Bay yesterday afternoon for a client meeting and along the way I stopped by my mom’s place to finally pick up our wedding china.

I’m so happy to finally have it at our apartment – I love it!

If you’re thinking to yourself, where is my invite to dinner?  I promise, it’s coming!  Let the dinner parties begin!! Tis the season for them – we have attended or hosted a dinner party every night since Dec. 23 and it will continue to be nightly until Jan. 1st.  Love it!

    That is about the most put together apartment of a young newly wed that I have ever seen. The tablecloth and flowers are terrific with that gorgeous china.
    My house is all destruction right now but I guess that I will get it together for the New Year’s Eve party we are having—-I just don’t think that I will look as cool as you. Maybe I will run out and buy some fabric to spruce the table up instead of using my same old white one with the plaid napkin ribbons purchased on a trip to Scotland 12 years ago.

      Oh my – what a fabulous compliment. Thank you, thank you, thank you! “The most put together apartment of a young newly wed” – that was so nice to hear!

      Oooh – a New Year’s Eve party at your house! I wish I was there! What fun! I LOVE the idea of a white tablecloth with plaid napkin ribbons – very classic and chic!
