Party Picks: A Plum Setting

Good morning and Happy Monday!

A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by my friend, Sarah of Dreamers Joy Events and Design, to design an invitation and coordinating place card for a welcoming dinner being hosted by one of her clients.  The concept – modern/fancy…the color palette – plum, gold, black and white.  By the feed from her business page on Facebook, the event went off this past Saturday night as a rousing success and I am looking forward to seeing the photo coverage!

Inspired by the color palette, I decided to explore the interwebs and find pieces that I recommend for a plum-my dinner.  What do you think?  Do you have a favorite piece from the place setting?

Now…what would a dinner party be without some vittles!?  So, here is a menu I put together…some I’ve actually served during intimate family dinners (the salmon fillet is a-maz-ing!)…others I’m just dying to try.  Anyway, which one looks to be the most appetizing to you?!
