Flowers to match the table
My new tabletop collection!
I then fill in the gaps with my favourite tableware – plates, champagne glasses, cutlery and more. My favourite at the moment is of course, my newest Palace Garden plate set – they are so vibrant and fun, perfect timing to come out of lockdown and to enjoy time with friends.
If you’re a gourmet chef and can whip up delicious extravagant dishes then go for it! Otherwise if you’re like me and are not a gourmet chef, do what I do and choose dishes that can be made or prepared earlier. This way your dinner can be baked in the oven or in the case of dessert – sit in the fridge – so you can enjoy the evening with your guests not having to worry about making the dinner while they’re there. Remember, the best part of a dinner party is having fun with your guests!
My bonus tip is to have a special cocktail based on your dinner party theme ready for when your guests arrive. For example, for my new plate collection I would create a simple Rosé and berry cocktail – based on Marie Antionette.
