For my birthday this year we hosted friends for a dinner at home and it got me so excited for the holidays and entertaining more through the end of the year. We love to cook but had fallen out of the habit of hosting and this was a wonderful reminder of how sweet it is to bring friends together in our own home!
While I love autumnal colors this time of year I didn’t want my birthday table to look overly seasonal, and went for a darker color palette of blues and purples for the decor. I will never grow tired of our blue and white wedding china by Royal Copenhagen (the pattern has been in production for over 225 years!), so I played up the blues with a paisley Liberty tablecloth (very affordable!) and matching napkins, as well as tonal blooms and fabulous coupes by La Double J. The intricate tablecloth pattern would look fabulous with simple white plates, or you could play up the metallics with gold and silver accents for a festive NYE table.
I love working vintage and antique pieces into my tables, and a few favorites include my gilt egg dish for deviled eggs, my antique french pots de creme for chocolate mousse, and our daily silverware. Read on for links to everything I used to set the table, and our full menu including links to the recipes!
