Throwing a proper dinner party is an art. There is nothing like a perfectly designed and planned gathering. From the color scheme to the people you invite, It is a thoughtfully curated moment. This dinner party in Positano Italy is simply breathtaking. It has me thinking that a destination dinner party might just be the next big thing. Let’s explore what makes this event so stunning and what to wear to your next dinner party.
GREENERY OVER THE WATER
Talk about breathtaking! I stumbled upon this incredible destination while browsing Instagram and immediately checked out the full article on Vogue.com. The hanging green canopy is simply stunning. I have never seen anything quite like it. The way the vines come down and spread across the table really make this image. And who could forget about that view! It’s unbeatable to have a gathering literally overlooking the ocean on the coast of Italy. The subtly patterned table cloth and deep blue glasses work beautifully next to the blue of the ocean. No detail is left forgotten – the flowers and candles are artfully placed between the vines.
COZY CORNER UNDERNEATH CANOPY
This image is just as beautiful but simpler. The white canopies add great coverage from the sun while creating a dream-like quality. The lush greenery is the perfect scenery behind the all-white setting. The choice to do all white works well. The small plants, green/blue glasses, and napkins add just the right amount of color. The color also looks stunning in comparison to the nature around. Simple, yet stunning, this seating area is picturesque and dreamy.
I always love to fantasize about what people are in attendance at a grand dinner party. These gatherings are special in that way, they bring so many interesting people together to form new relationships.
OVERLOOKING THE BEACH
This has to be my favorite image! So crisp and clean yet, beautifully decorated this setting is perfect. This structure is more refined and luxurious. Plus, the table is basically on the beach! Just on a deck or balcony a few feet up. I can only imagine how beautiful the lights are at night. The combo of lanterns and bulbs is interesting and works well with the decor. I love that this space offers seating on the sides of the balcony beside the table itself. This space feels much more casual for having a conversation. The crisp table cloth, two-tone chairs, and table setting work together in unison. I love amount of plants, flowers, and candles on the table.
INCREDIBLE SHOTS FROM POSITANO, ITALY
Some outfit inspiration for this destination gathering! A stunning lace and pattern midi dress with big sunglasses perfect for a day out.
Just look at this stunning image of the beach in Positano! Such clean water and an incredible array of beach chairs and umbrellas. This image alone has convinced me that I need to take a trip here!
When planning the perfect dinner party you can’t forget about what sensational outfit you will be wearing. Whether as a host or a guest having the perfect outfit will make the night complete.
I love daydreaming about what I would wear to this incredible dinner party. The scenery and colors are just so dreamy. I opted for a collection of dresses that are bright and eye-catching. These dresses are beautiful. Yet, they are casual enough so still be effortlessly stylish. My personal favorites are the black and white gown by Johanna Ortiz and the long sleeve dress by Les Reveries. I will always opt for a midi-length dress for an evening celebration. They just seem a bit more formal and are much more comfortable! I also love reaching for a dress with a sleeve so I’m not dealing with straps all day.
How stunning would these dresses be seated at this dinner party?
A destination dinner party calls for comfortable yet, stylish footwear. I picked out a range of sandals that I’m in love with. Keep it super casual with a flat sandal or elevated your look with a block heel. I’m a big advocate for a block heel – they are insanely comfortable and make you look just a tad more put together. Depending on the location a flat sandal could be the way to go. If it’s in more of a rural area with a rough terrain definitely opt for flat!
