Decorate Like an Event Planner

If you’re anything like us, creating a tablescape like the ones you see on Pinterest is harder than it looks. That’s why wedding planner Virginia Trafton, the founder of Bluebird Productions in Colorado, launched Bluebird in a Box—a hostess’s arsenal for putting on a delightful evening as if an event planner had done it. The boxes are themed, such as "Merry & Bright" and "Game Night," to include tips for place settings, staples like a grocery list for the menu, custom DJ playlists, downloadable templates for place cards, and even a seating chart. Even if you’re worried that conversation may suffer in an intimate group, she has a handful of entertaining ideas to foster conversation. 

Should you want everything down to the flatware, check out the reusable party boxes from Social Studies. Each is equipped with a complete place setting: ceramic dishware from brands like Aerin Lauder, matching table linens, candles, and holders, paper goods like place cards and menus, flatware, and fresh floral centerpieces. There are even salt and pepper shakers. It’s all delivered to your door and you’re only charged by the number of guests. Keep it for the next party too.
