We love thinking outside the box when it comes to entertaining, so when we received these adorable fish plates we knew they would make the perfect place setting for a seaside inspired dinner party! Themed dinners can be a great way to break out of your entertaining routine and also bring an added element of excitement to an otherwise ordinary event. Here’s how you can plan your own:
1) Get Inspired
Choosing a theme can be difficult, but it can quickly be narrowed down by looking for inspiration at your favorite home store. (cough cough, Linen Chest!) We were inspired by these plates and knew that they could be the focal point of our decor. From there we chose other items that coordinated with the blue and green colour scheme and included other fish-themed servings pieces.
2) Be Creative
Think about what items you already own and how you can incorporate them into the party decor. For instance, maybe you have a seashell collection that can be included in the centerpieces or flowers in your garden that coordinate with your colour scheme. Being resourceful and using things you already own can help make your budget go further and make for a less stressful event.
3) Plan the Details
A well-planned dinner party is all in the details. Think about everything from the menu to the invitations and how you can infuse your theme into every aspect of the event. Maybe you encourage your guests to dress according to theme or include a signature drink on your menu. However you plan to incorporate your theme be sure to think about how it will enhance the event and create a pleasant atmosphere for your guests.
