Crafting the Atmosphere

In the art of hosting a dinner party, creating an inviting atmosphere is non-negotiable. It is a key ingredient that elevates a gathering from ordinary to extraordinary.

Prepare the Bar

Welcome your guests into your home with a cocktail. When setting up your bar, all the bottles, mixers, glasses, and garnishes that you put out can begin to crowd your table. Consider corralling your cocktail essentials on this gorgeous, scalloped rattan tray (bonus—it has a removable glass insert) that perfectly combines both style and functionality. With summer in full swing and temperatures rising, you will need something to keep your drinks chilled. Ice buckets aren’t just for keeping drinks cool—they can be a stylish addition to your table. Check out this rattan ice bucket with tongs to add a textural note to your bar.

The Tablescape

Your table isn’t just where you eat–it’s the heartbeat of your dinner party. It sets the tone, sparks conversations, and invites your guests to indulge in a feast for the senses. From elegant settings to vibrant centerpieces, every detail on your tablescape speaks volumes about your style and hospitality. No summer table is complete without candles and the right tableware to enhance both aesthetics and functionality. Explore our new selection of dinner plates, linens, and glassware to find items that complement your theme and elevate your dining experience. Opt for versatile pieces that can transition seamlessly from appetizers to desserts, ensuring your guests enjoy every course in style. Try adding these beautiful hand-painted candlesticks, Asterisk candleholders, and colorful napkin rings to your table for a fun accent.

When it comes to hosting a dinner party, choosing the right dinnerware and linens is like picking out the perfect outfit for your table.

Choose dinnerware that speaks to your personality, whether that be bold and modern or charmingly eclectic, you can find it in our new arrivals. From lively patterns (check out this tablecloth!) and vibrant colors (look at these napkins!) to unique shapes (such as this curvy vase), Liza Pruitt’s tabletop collection is perfect for any occasion.

Hosting is about creating a welcoming space for guests to relax, indulge, and connect, so infuse warmth, elegance, and personal flair into every detail of your table.
