Time to Entertain

If you’ve got a dinner party or something special on the horizon and you’re trying to decide just how to make it special,  make sure you put some time and effort into the small details including the flowers, table setting and even the cocktail napkins that are being served with your drinks and hors d’oeuvres.  You don’t need to spend a lot to make your evening special, you just need to spend some time doing it!  Take a look at some of my favorite center pieces, bars and party details below.  I’ll definitely be using some of these ideas for my next shindig!


I love how this bar is fully stacked with beverages and a bowl of candy for an extra treat as you refresh your drink

Throw a sprig of lavender or something sweet from your garden onto your place setting

Pre mixed drinks are always a hit because it’s less work for the guests.  The mason jars add a special summery touch

Use a simple color scheme and find less expensive flowers that look absolutely stunning once you arrange them on the table

Don’t forget to add flowers to the bar – they’ll get noticed for sure!

Get creative with your votives and use seashells as candle holders

Be sure to serve something that’s fun and tasty and will be talked about for days like these fried raviolis!

Use the flowers from your farm to create a natural fresh arrangement

Use a variety of pretty cocktail napkins that are collecting dust in your closet or shop for something extra cute that might even have a personal message on it

Use your leftover chevron fabric and create a fun table runner

There are a million ideas out there and these are just a few.  It’s a reminder to put a little extra effort into your party decor.  If you’re gonna throw a party you want it to be a success so spend a little extra time on the details 😉
