Red and "Kraft Paper" Brown Dinner Party

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I recently hosted a dinner party at my house for 30 guests. The color palette was red and "Kraft Paper" brown. I was inspired from my own post back in March titled Planning the Perfect Dinner Party. I wanted to incorporate burlap table runners, candles, and red roses.

These were my Inspiration Pictures from Planning the Perfect Dinner Party.

My Party pics

For each persons place setting I first used a Kraft Paper envelope. Then I printed out each persons name on a self adhesive red round label. After the label was printed I used a vintage inspired cutlery stamp to finish it off. The silverware was tucked inside the envelope which was then wrapped in a red and white patterned napkin {tied with a bow of course}. The menu was placed behind the envelope and held together with a red and white twine bow.

I also used a vintage inspired "Bon Appetit" stamp for my menus. Again, never missing an opportunity for a bow :)

Party favors were homemade chocolate chip cookies. Cookies were placed in Brown Kraft paper boxes, wrapped with a red and white twine bow and a tag to tie everything together.

"Home Baked Love" tag to give people a hint as to whats inside.

How much time does it take you to pull off everything? I would love to attempt to do something like that one day but time is my enemy and that looks like it took forever! Beautiful though!

Wow, this is gorgeous! You have an amazing attention to detail and beautiful style.

Pretty Domestic said...

Thank you all for your kind words. I really appreciate the feedback. The party took about a day and half to pull together. I was in San Diego working on a wedding on Sunday and this event was on a Tuesday. If you need any coordinating services please let me know. xo Justine
