Set the Soiree 6

 

There’s always an excuse for a dinner party, especially this time of the year. Family gatherings. Friendsgiving. Holiday parties. It’s all about friends and family coming together to eat, drink and connect. Connection happens to be the perfect word to describe the purpose of a soiree, and it’s also a concept that’s meaningful to local event planner Dagny Morrow who helped Lifestyle design three out-of-the-ordinary table concepts.

• Local is the New Black

• Minimalist-Minded  &

• A Global Setting

Morrow owns and operates Last Best Weddings with her partner in planning, Liz Meyers. The pair started their business with connection in mind. “We thrive on relationships and building connections with local business owners in our community,” says Morrow. Each table came together through collaboration with local businesses and artists, which resulted in three tablescapes to dine for.

WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL FAVORITE OUT OF THE THREE TABLE AESTHETICS?

“Local is the new black is our favorite table concept because it showcases so much of what we personally love. Supporting our local community, eating high-quality local food  and sharing food and local businesses with our friends are what we love to do in our everyday lives. Colorado is the home of so many wonderfully creative humans, and we hope to work with them all someday. If we can continue to support them by implementing their craft into our events, that is the butter to our bread.”

WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE FOR HOSTS LOOKING TO STYLE THEIR OWN UNIQUE TABLE?

Have fun with it. Go to a local market and find inspiration from the seasonal vegetables. Go to the local florist and find inspiration from the seasonal florals. Whatever it may be, look to your local community to find inspiration, and have a blast putting together a dinner party for your loved ones.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE DECOR DETAIL WHEN IT COMES TO A DINNER PARTY?

The food. When it comes down to it, we LOVE food

“The idea behind our global setting table was to showcase the amazing textiles that Jamie Lauren Design sources from all over the world. We used textiles from Peru and Africa in this shoot. We wanted to create a table setting that was laid back, fun, creative, bright and felt like a backyard dinner with friends.” -Dagny Morrow
