While on holidays we decided to have a dinner party for New Years Eve... summer style in the backyard!
The weather was gorgeous, friends arrived for the day, kids played happily after a day at the beach and late afternoon was spent frocking up and getting the food prepped.
We deliberately didn't sit down until the kids went to bed so though we ate late, it made all the difference.
It was a beautiful night by candlelight, spent with friends. And made all the more special with that little bit more effort.
The table setting was quite simple - old pasta jars filled with candles, an old (but loved) doily tablecloth, a few nectar jars filled with flowers, paper napkins wrapped around the cutlery with twine and a shipping tag and the new pots I bought from the Shady Fig.
Dinner parties, we need to have more of them! xx
