Throwing a summer dinner party? And don’t know how to decorate? Here’s some beautiful ideas for your next summer dinner party.


I love featuring Simple Ways to Celebrate here on So Festive. And today I’m showing off some beautiful Dinner Party setups from Esselle. Because I don’t know what is more simple than having someone do all the work for you to create a  beautiful dinner party! What is Esselle? They are a company that specializes in dinner party decor and tablescape essentials for the modern hostess.

If I had endless time and resources, I would have a fancy dinner party every week, even if it was just my little family. I know that celebrating can be simple and you don’t have to do elaborate things like fancy dinner parties, but dinner parties speak to me. There just isn’t any other way to put it.


Going to a dinner party where every detail is thought out perfectly is like for me, being a kid in a candy store. And now that I have a 2 year old who somehow has fallen in love with candy, that phrase has taken on a whole new meaning. So I’ll take him to the candy store and I’ll go to a dinner party. Fair enough.

I could keep rambling, but instead, I’m going to let you enjoy (read: ooh and ahh) over these dinner party setups. I’ve fallen in love.
