Dinner Party Details: A Fun Twist On A Classic Tablescape

You guys already know this, but I love to entertain. Even though the holidays are over, it doesn’t mean that dinner parties have to be too! Living in Los Angeles provides plenty of opportunities for a chic, outdoor meal – even in the winter months. With Baby Hunkin arriving so soon, I’m spending as much time with friends as possible before going under the radar at home as a new mumma for a few weeks, following her birth. We recently hosted a little Golden Globes viewing and dinner party for some of our best friends. Since I’m a sucker for pretty tablescapes and always looking for new ways to spice it up, these splatter paint dishes by Emma Bridgewater (which is one of my favorite UK homeware brands) were a must. They’re whimsical enough to use as an accent piece, but still pair beautifully with neutrals that I already had in our cabinet. They’re hand painted in the UK, in the brand’s Victorian factory – which I love! Not to mention, splatter paint is a big trend at the moment and these dishes will work for every season (even Summer). Add some candles, elegant napkin holders, a live garland, (heat lamps and blankets draped over the back of chairs is also a great way to keep everyone cozy), your family and friends, of course – and you have the perfect place setting for a Winter gathering. Voila!
