If you are planning a “dressy” dinner party – consider using a palette of metallic silver and pewter mixed with plum. I love the shimmer mixed with the deep hue of one of Fall’s hottest colors. Rich, yet modern-looking. And oh, so sophisticated! Speaking of sophisticated….make sure to dress yourself in a coordinating hue. This ruffled-trim dress from Milly fits the bill!
Since we are hosting a “dressy” dinner party, it’s time to pull out the good stuff. You know what I’m talking about… Dust off that china, polish the silver, and make sure your crystal is sparkling! Add a modern touch to your classics with a few new items from Plum Party Supplies. I found shimmered, silver napkins that are stunning, and two different types of votive candle holders. Silver and gold metallic glass votives, or silver glitter tea light holders…..you choose which one is more your style!
Serve your guests passed champagne after dinner. To dress up your drinks, add a rim of pink sugar on each glass. Simply wet the rim of your champagne flute and dip into pink fine sugar. To carry the shimmer of the silver throughout the party, serve cupcakes decorated with over-sized pearl or silver sprinkles.
