Who ever said you can’t use paper to set the table? I DID, once upon a time. A dinner party should be classy, elegant and sophisticated. BUT guess what? Recently, paper goods have stepped it up a notch…and now I’m singin’ a different tune!
There are so many stores that now carry a wide variety of paper party goods in the most beautiful patterns. So we gathered our favorites from Target and Meri Meri to put together a pretty fabulous tablescape.
Now want to know the best part? Clean up is a cinch!
With the holidays approaching we thought this would be such a nice and economical way to host your friends over for a “Friends-giving” dinner.
We did mix in some real glassware and cutlery wrapped in cloth napkins with a piece of wheat to make it festive.
We love adding in little trinkets and details to make our guests swoon over their place setting. We found mini party hats by Oh Joy! for Target, Mini confetti poppers and antler stir sticks which will make any drink look super cute.
Keeping it simple and chic with decorative paper and plastic is just one way to make the holidays stress-free.

Turning 40 on Halloween…does it get more fun?! Dressing up, drinking champagne and dancing on the tables…that’s just how it should be done.
Rick’s wife Emily called us for some help with decorating the private event space at Lafayette for a 40th birthday celebration on Halloween. Everyone is getting dressed up she told us. She also told us that Rick is often told he looks like George Clooney…
The Silver Fox.
When a five year old kid has a clear vision of what he wants his birthday party to be you cannot help but make sure you follow through and go all out.
This summer Gavin started gearing up for his birthday very early as he was often conversing with his best friend, Mazzy’s Dad, Mike about their birthdays falling on the same day.
All summer long Gavin would tell Mike - we’re going to have a superhero bowling party, together.
Mike always agreed.
And here we are today.
Was the biggest blast. Celebrating a 5 year old boy and 42 year old man.
I think by now you know we love to eat and drink things that are pretty and simple to make. So here’s what we’ve been serving up this month for play dates, cocktail hour and parties.
Skewers: You can put pretty much anything on a stick these days. We took yellow grape tomatoes and mozzarella and thread onto short bamboo picks. We lay em’ over a bed of basil in a small cast iron pan. Note…these will go FAST. Make a lot. And prep in advance so you have ready to go when you’re guests arrive!
Witches Brooms: Mini Reese Peanut Butter Cups + pretzel rods = broomsticks! Does it get easier then this?
