fall dinner parties

September 9, 2010

Fall is in the air, but that doesn’t mean the summer fun has to stop quite yet! I’m sure there are a few more sunny days that would be perfect for a ladies’ brunch, a backyard picnic, or a late night dinner party with friends!

Here we highlight our ‘hauthaus table tops’ that we debuted on Kare11 earlier this summer…

Perfect for a ladies' brunch!

We have our ‘Ladies’ brunch table top’ in the stylish color combo, white, grey and yellow.  Wouldn’t it be fun to sit down at this beautful table to sip tea and eat scones?

  • Table cloth: KDR Showrooms
  • White round placemat, yellow square and round plates, napkin, napkin holder: Crate and Barrel

Backyard BBQ

I love breezy, sunny fall days. They are perfect for a backyard BBQ before the big game. Get this tabletop look!

Late night dinner party

After the autumn sun has set, turn up the jazz music and have a late night dinner party with friends. This table top setting is perfect for Spanish tapas…

  • Tablecloth fabric: KDR Showrooms
  • Teal charger, small black bowl, pitcher, glasses, antique wooden bowl: Spinario Design
  • Blue plate, napkin holder, napkin: Crate & Barrel
  • Purple plate, black square plate, silverware: Ikea
  • Buddah: Zachary Ltd.
  • Thyme: Minneapolis Farmers’ Market

 

When putting together a tabletop setting it’s important to remember to use antique or vintage items you might have in storage. Your Grandma’s antique silver vase might be just the thing your setting needs!  Don’t be afraid to use quirky items to add character! Go ahead, stack up your plates, use herbs as decoration, mix colors and styles!

It looks like this weekend’s weather is going beautiful! So please, go ahead; invite the neighbors, family, and friends and have a fun gathering of your own!
