Intimate Dinner Parties: Decor & Planning

Updated: Nov 11

We love a good dinner party! Especially when it's themed. Who doesn't love a good themed party? Today we are touching on how to plan, decorate and execute a successful dinner party to impress!


Let's talk about the planning timeline first:

  1. Decide on the date, guest list and theme of your party!

  2. Plan your menu and the time you're able to commit to the party.

  3. Start a list where you can jot down ideas, recipes and guest list notes.

  4. Choose the cocktails and/or cocktails you'll be serving.

  5. Research and find decor that fits your theme.

  6. Put together the perfect background music playlist.

  7. Send invitations to guests.

  8. Make a detailed shopping list.

  9. Finish any DIY decor projects or place cards.

  10. Create a seating plan after receiving all RSVP's.

  11. Clean the house and get everything set for your fabulous evening!
