Radiant Red Ikat Holiday Dinner Party

Radiant Red Ikat Holiday Dinner Party

Radiant” is the perfect word to describe this warm & modern, textile-inspired HOLIDAY DINNER PARTY by Jennifer and Jeff of Honeycomb Events & Design!

The chic Ikat fabric that hung on the wall behind the dessert table served as the inspiration for this entire party (Learn more about Ikat here.), and I love how Jennifer & Jeff carried their ornamental ikat design throughout the gorgeous invitations & paper details – including the super cute “place cards” that hung from ribbon on the backs of the chairs! Other favorite highlights include the cactus party favors, vibrant red peonies, and whimsical desserts like chocolate dipped spoons and pudding adorned with Persian fairy floss.

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jennifer & Jeff

::
The holiday season is full of life, color, and brilliance. We wanted to take the best and brightest parts of the holidays and create an intimate and radiant dinner party.

The inspiration for this party came from the Ikat fabric featured on the wall behind the dessert table. Ikat is a dying process similar to tie-dye, but the threads are dyed before construction. This red and white repeating pattern reminded us of the shape of a glass blown Christmas ornament. It had just the right touch of holiday color and modern, natural aesthetics. We kept the color story easy and modern, but brought out the details in the textures, from the woven strands of the Persian fairy floss that adorned the pudding, the shredded flakes of the coconut cupcakes, down to the smooth and uniform petals of the succulents. This dessert table was all about taste and texture.

The ornamental Ikat reappears in paper with the name cards pinned to the backs of the dining chairs. A white lacquer branch and ribbon polish off this festive touch. This table combines the abundance of life and little dash of shine. These marvelous succulents bring in a soft sprinkle of green while the vibrant red peonies and gold candlelight radiate the warmth of the season.

The real fun and whimsy of this party is found at the hot cocoa bar, where guests are invited to grab a mug of cocoa and customize it to their liking with salted caramels, whipped cream, toffee chips, homemade marshmallows, and chocolate and peppermint dipped spoons. All of this atop vintage board games that can be played while enjoying a one-of-a-kind chocolaty creation. The hearty succulents were so beautiful that we had to give them away as favors, so our friends and family to take a little bit of our holiday with them.”

This event design hits all the marks–innovative and sophisticated! Love the homemade marshmallows and other homey touches, like the books and games, juxtaposed to the glitzy gold and glossy white touches.
