Now that you’ve just thrown the biggest celebration of your life, it’s time to downsize to something a little more intimate: your first dinner party as newlyweds.
Entertain this thought: there’s no need to fret about a thing if you focus on a simple, easy menu, set a beautiful table, and invite your closest friends.
Conversation over a lovely table has a charm all its own, so be sure to set it with all the Vera Wang Wedgwood china and crystal you received from your wedding! A bouquet of fresh flowers in a luminous crystal vase is all the embellishment you need to set off the elegance of brilliant platinum dinnerware.
Don’t slave away in the kitchen if it’s not your thing. A few simple courses served stylishly allow you to spend more time mingling with friends. Don’t be afraid to have fun – Martini glasses are a perfect way to serve sorbet and cleanse your guest’s palettes, while sparkling crystal bowls and vases filled with vibrantly colored candies serve as both dessert and decorative accents to your tablescape. No need to stock a full bar, choose a good wine and a couple of signature cocktails and let guests serve themselves.
See? Now you’re free to enjoy your own party… and plan for the next one! –XO, Vera
