There’s nothing like a beautiful girls night, especially if it involves rosé, beautiful scenery and a delicious meal. The evening was inspired by several pieces that will become available soon in my shop collection.
I just fell in love with these plates when I first laid my eyes on them. I knew they would be super versatile being made from melamine. You can use them outdoors, indoors, or take out that picnic basket and make a beautiful park dinner! Now for the utensils, well those are made out of PLASTIC!! Aren’t they gorgeous?! They come in beautiful packaging, tied with a bow. You can leave them in the packaging or take them out.
I enjoy making menus. Extra details always makes your event stand out from the rest. Even if I’m having a small party (like this one) I like to include a menu. Guests know what’s coming, and in this case, the wine pairings were listed on each course. In addition to menus, I like to have place cards so guests know where they are sitting – another small touch that makes an impression on your guests.
To complete the look, I found these adorable little plants for each guest to take home as a favor.
For the deconstructed garland (organic garland without floral wire), I cut each stem about half way up. I placed the larger stem greenery first to serve as a base for the garland and added my fresh silver dollar eucalyptus to fill in the space. I then trimmed my roses down to just the tip of the stem and positioned them into my deconstructed garland. Last final touch was some fun gold confetti because no matter what the occasion, you always need a little flare!
To complete the garland I wanted natural candlelight, and something that complemented the theme. I am always looking for unique votives for my collection and this is no exception. They look beautiful during the day but when the twilight hour comes, these girls become SHOWSTOPPERS! These will also be available soon in my shop.
I love using bar carts while entertaining outside. They are a fun way to present cocktails and drinks. This bar cart was dedicated to all the rosé on the menu and pink mocktail options.
These adorable rose coupe glasses will be available as part of my collection. They are stunning!
For the menu, I wanted something light that was refreshing for an outdoor summer evening. We started with herb watermelon feta salad. For the main course, spatchcocked lemon rosemary chicken, roasted brussel sprouts and butternut squash, and french sweet milk rolls. Peaches and Creme Tarte served with vanilla ice cream and whipping cream for dessert. Once I knew my menu, I had a sommelier help me pick out wines for each course.
I hope you got some good tips for your next event. I can’t wait to share my collection with you all and see your pretty tablescapes!
Until next time-
Thank you to all my beautiful friends for being my models. 🙂
