I, the Fashionable Hostess and Arielle, the Nutritionist behind BeWellwithArielle.com teamed up to host a series of Dinner Parties called Delicious & Decadent Dinners. I am excited to share a recap of one of our recent events.
The Delicious and Decadent Earth Day Party was the perfect mix of green food and eco-friendly decor. BeWellwithArielle whipped up a fabulous menu of healthy green (literally every dish was the color green in addtion to being organic and healthy) while I found an array of Eco-Friendly products to complement.

A few Table Top Styling Tips that I gave in my Tutorial at the Event:
Table Top Styling Tip #1: Mixing and Matching prints is very in style for clothes AND tables! I decided to implement this trend via my Tablecloth & StoneTextileStudio Table Napkins. The only “must” is keeping them in the same color family, so I chose neutral and grey.
Table Top Styling Tip #2: Incorporate “natural” elements to make your table feel more “green”. Instead of opting for a fancy centerpiece, I took a small clear glass bowl, filled it with rocks, then placed a candle on top. I also added a green leaf to each table setting.
Table Top Styling Tip #3: Be eco-friendly with your menus. Rather than printing a copy for each guest, take 2 copies and frame them in a picture frame so all of your guests can share! Keeping in the natural theme, I chose a brown wooden frame.
