Anyone else sad the holidays are over? To ease back into normal routines, I wanted to host a winter dinner party. Winter can be long without much to look forward to, why not have a few friends over for a fancy dinner party? Jackson Morgan paired with hot chocolate can help lift the winter blues.
To bring in texture, I add a velvet runner down the middle of the table. I scored green taper candles that matched perfectly and once lit helped create a lovely ambience. I love to mix china patterns, I layered gold edged china with my beloved monogramed plates from Sasha Nicholas. Our friends at Mostess box sent over their winter box, which included these fun gold straws and Frasier Fir candle.
After deciding to use pinecones, it only felt right to stick with an evergreen, brown, and touches of gold for a color scheme. The navy rug and chairs tied in nicely with theme. I mixed in wooden serving boards to bring in warm color tones. The touches of gold added a luxe feel to the party. It does not hurt either that our salted caramel cream bottles matched perfectly.
I use apothecary jars year round and change out with different seasonal fillers. During the holidays, I had Christmas ornaments in these jars. For this dinner party, I opted for pinecones. I found pinecone branches that were meant to be stems for a vase, but placed around the jars to create a semi garland down the table.
