Pulling together a Dinner Party from scratch is no easy-feat and I think we'd all agree that (second to food) presentation is key?
Today, I've pulled together my top picks from the Anthropologie website to showcase how I'd achieve the Ultimate Dinner Party.
Being a host, it's important to feel comfortable in the kitchen. That's why I've opted for this beautiful jumpsuit. It's plain, simple and easy to wear, but it's also smart and eye-catching - meaning I don't need to faff about with accessories.
I'm no whizz in the kitchen but my favourite meal to cook is one of my mums recipes. Chicken, leek and bacon in a white wine cream sauce with filo pastry, served with sweetcorn, green beans and new potatoes. *mouth waters*
Aesthetically it's quite a light coloured dish, which is why I picked out the teal plates, to add a pop of colour - Personally I'd stack the Mooreland Dessert Plates on top of the Chilled Sky Dinner Plate to give some depth to the dish (who cares if their meant for pudding?!).
To keep it consistent and add a little warmth to the table I've opted for some stunning gold wine glasses and candelabras, finished off with fairy lights threaded through the centrepiece of the table. For a personal touch (of course, if expense was an exception) I thought it would be nice to have personalised napkins with the guests initials, just to make them feel extra special. And to complete the look I've opted for similar colours on the coasters, placemats and cutlery.
In fairness, it's hard to go wrong with Anthropologie's home-ware section and all of the items above would make for a pretty special evening.
So what do you think? Do you like my picks? Well, if you do, I've got a bit of a treat for you!
