Entertaining Ideas

My friend Whitney, from blis boutique, has the best entertaining ideas; remember this and this? Well she's back to share another- thanks Whitney!

Hosting a birthday dinner, super club or casual Friday night dinner, come up with a simple theme and it will help you tie all the creative touches in together.

Here I hosted a birthday dinner for 6 people. I wanted to cook an Italian pasta and vua-lah my theme was created! I used a platter I had in my kitchen to tie into the theme, created a fresh yet Tuscan feel center piece, served Italian wines and played Italian tunes!! To change up my dining room table I covered it in brown paper and wrote on it in chalk for the guest’s place cards and the finishing touches of the center piece!

Other fun theme ideas ~

*Serve only apps for dinner *Having friends over to watch a football game theme the food according to the team(s) ex: Atlanta Falcons serve Fried Chicken / Greenbay Packers serve gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches *Fall time dinner party serve 2 or 3 different types of chili or soups with all the fun toppings such as cheese, bacon, green onions, sour cream...

I think a theme definitely adds to the fun of dinner party. And I love the idea of the brown paper on the table with the chalk, so cute and clever! :-)
