7 Take-aways for Hosting a Chic Holiday dinner party—Our Thanksgiving Dinner Table Scape

Hope everyone just had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. We usually dined out or went to relatives houses for a big family Thanksgiving dinner.  This year, we decided to do something different maybe because of LA’s traffic.  I am just joking although it is kind of true.  The major motivation is that we have  some fine China at home  and we want to eat healthy as much as we can.  Plus I was in a good mood to make some fresh flower arrangements and a Thanksgiving tables cape.  So here is what we did.

Fresh flowers always put us in a festive mood.  I know it is Fall and it is Thanksgiving. We are supposed to have some colorful foliages.  But we are in LA and we have Spring through the year.

Here are 7 simple take-aways for hosting a chic and stylish holiday dinner party.

  1.  Make sure you are going to have fun.  If you are not a super chef or self-claimed one, you can just leave the truly heavy cooking to pros.  We ordered a turkey from Honey Baked Ham. It’s so yummy.  Therefore, I was able to enjoy myself while cooking cookies, cakes, veggies and setting the table through the day.
  2. Have a lot of fresh flowers.Flowers can instantly put you in a cheerful mood.
  3. Time to take out all of your fine china that you inherited from your grandma.
  4. Have something exotic that people can start a conversation with. We had Belgian endive beef wraps with Sukiyaki sauce and some Chinese steamed food and soup.
  5. Make your dishes as much colorful as you can. It’s festive.
  6. Cool mixed background music.
  7. Have a self-help cocktail station to keep your guest engaged.

Happy Thanksgiving Weekend
