Green & Gold Christmas Holiday Tablescape

Green & Gold Christmas Holiday Tablescape

I styled this green and gold Christmas Holiday party last year, but never got a chance to show it here on the blog.

The south of France has its advantages, mainly regarding food; which in my book is already a great start for any dinner party! Especially the al fresco ones where we get to enjoy the glorious weather and scenery ;) But apart from the great food, the Mediterranean lifestyle oozes simplicity and charm, and therefore makes for a great dinner party theme this time of year!

Something about a bar that make me all excited for a party! Be it a confetti bar , a waffles bar , or a cocktail bar .

Guests serve themselves and all you do as the hostess is watch everyone interacting and join in the fun! And that, my friends; is the great start for any party! ;)

How to Set up an Easter Waffle Bar

How to Set up an Easter Waffle Bar

Last year we had a mimosa bar as part of our Easter brunch  ( you can see it here ). It was such a hit with everyone, that this year I'm still going the self-service bar   for brunch.

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

Tips for Hosting a Relaxed Dinner Party

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of  Santa Margherita USA  . All opinions are 100% mine.

So throughout the years, I've tried to hone in on what works and perfect the art of dinner parties by  keeping it all as simple as possible. Whether I have days to plan ahead, or for a last-minute get-together. For me, simplicity is the name of the party game when dinner parties are concerned!
