This time of year, we have plenty of reasons to get together at parties with our friends. I’m particularly fond of celebrating astronomical phenomenon’s. Winter Solstice marks the longest night and the shortest day of the year. It takes place on Wednesday, December 21 and I’m throwing a little dinner party in honor of this occasion.

Staying true to the Your Perfect Party spirit of entertaining, the theme for this dinner party is defined using winter white. Rich brown and gold accents complete the look. The foundation of this tablescape design is these magnificent crystal studded leather placemats, which set the tone for the party and add the sparkle of the night sky.

The next element added is for height to create a little drama. Showcasing these smoky vases from our LA Party Collection provides sophistication. The hydrangeas and rose topper complete this elegant dinner party’s appearance.

An intimate dinner party is the perfect occasion to show off your best china. The beautiful white rose in the votive from our LA Party Collection compliments the elegance of the place setting.

Including flickering candles is like adding the northern lights to the table using cut-glass votive candle holders from our New York City Party Collection

Keeping the menu simple will make it easy to pull this dinner party together on a weeknight. Consider take-out from your favorite restaurant to assure a relaxed evening with your friends.

Enjoy the special moments of this holiday season by sharing your time with those you love.
