Having friends over to watch the Olympics? Go for the Gold and host a dinner party that will have them doing backflips!
A table is brought together by the details, this is a great DIY from Match Made on Hudson for napkin rings. As simple as these are, they’re a great option to add detail to your table for any event or holiday. Another multi-use option, these great lanterns from Pottery Barn are great for indoor or outdoor dining. Throw in some chunky candles and you’ve got yourself some mini-Olympic torches!
Finally this great DIY table-setting from Project Wedding is simple yet thoughtful. The continuous blue stripe used throughout as well as the bold pop of navy on white gives the table a simple yet coordinated look.
I like any excuse to have people over for dinner, throw in the Olympics—preferably men’s diving—and it’s bound to be a great time. Some people are intimidated by creating a table-setting but it’s not a scary thing—simply a way to be creative.
Here’s some final entertaining tips:
- When creating a table, pull in items that you like and make you feel comfortable.
- If you love the ambiance of candles, pull in different sizes, heights, colors.
- If you’re obsessed with fresh flowers (like I am!), gather some unique vases and arrange away.
Hopefully these ideas get you thinking and inspire you to have the neighbors over for some yummy food and a great time supporting our Olympic team!
