When it comes to holiday dinner parties, we're of the mindset that you can never have too many! Whether you're looking to start a new tradition or bring an old favorite back, Friendsgiving is a perfect place to start. Our friends at Black Twine show us how to plan one glam get-together from decorating to memory-making, sure to fill everyone with plenty of cheer.
Set a Glittery Golden Table
Going paper doesn't have to be a party foul. These lovely paper plates and bowls from Sophistiplate make feeding a crowd (almost!) effortless, without compromising on style. “Layer the bowls, plates, and chargers for a celebration-worthy place setting.” Finish off the tabletop with a festive gold runner from Hester & Cook and you’re all set!
Have desserts double as decor
One simple way to jazz up your table top: start with few white pumpkins and spray paint them gold. You can also play around with patterns using white acrylic paint to add a modern take on classic autumnal themes. Another easy trick: have your desserts double as decor! “Scatter mini pies across the table amongst the gold and white pumpkins. Or adorn a cake with a beautiful cake topper.” (This one is courtesy of Midnight Confetti.)
Be a crowd pleaser
One way to bring your guests together is to get everyone involved. Try asking everyone to bring a special dish to share — from family favorites to a cultural new twist on a classic — as a fun way to try new flavors and learn more about each other. You can also have each friend contribute a beloved holiday song or nostalgic tune to a collaborative playlist.
Have a Sweet Send-off
The prettiest pick for a party favor? Something to wear and take, of course! These custom headbands from Bracket also act as extra pops of glitter on the tablescape before dinner, plus they make Instagram-worthy photo props.
