Dinner For Who??

Looking for a great way to celebrate with friends and family this Summer - host a fabulous dinner party! It’s an inexpensive, fun and creative way to show off your hosting skills.

What makes a dinner party a success – besides the food of course? Whether you’re going simple, themed or grand, the key is in the details, big and small. And you don’t have to spend a fortune. Choose your style - an informal gathering with a few friends, a colorful B.B.Q. under the stars, a low-key cocktail party or a dinner that will feed 50, LMP will help make your dinner picture perfect.

Check out these chic and sophisticated ideas your guests will love!

An elegant, yet simple setting with a soothing display of earth tones and white calla lilies are sure to impress. We love this idea for Summer..and of course, black and white décor with red accents are always a favorite and a classic.

Outdoor events are another way to break the monotony of casual dining. Use of colorful decorations help bring out the spirit of this season. Cool blues and vibrant greens create a calming atmosphere on a hot day.

Along with color, outdoor lighting is a great way to add atmosphere to your evening B.B.Q under the stars.

Interested in something a little more formal? These table settings are easy to recreate – or we can use your favorite colors to create your own look. We love the deep purples used in the next photo and for a girls night, why not go pretty and pink?
