Entertaining With Color…

video by Jenner Brown

Products Used: Dinner Plates, Salad Plates, Goblets, Serving Platter, Tumblers, Floral Arrangement by Posies and Company

Last August, before we sold our house to build again, Drew and I hosted a dinner party with our closest friends and family. We lived in that house for just a short time and loved every second, so we wanted to give it a proper farewell. The get-together was the perfect way to say goodbye to something into which we had put so much time and energy.

I wanted the table setting to reflect the elegance we had hoped to build within those walls, the vividness of the life we lived there, and the casual coziness that only exists in a place you can call home. I started with a neutral palette and added beautiful white dinner plates from Noritake. Next, I added pops of color with a fresh floral arrangement, bright napkins, and colorful Noritake Salad Plates. The lit candles added an element of warmth and love. As we sat around the table, we enjoyed good food and lots of laughter. Needless to say it was a wonderful night.
Drew and I can’t wait for when we can unpack our dishes and entertain our family and friends in our new home. Discover how your next party can feature an elegant, fresh and colorful table setting by visiting Noritake.

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
