Last December, the eco-friendly grocery chain Fresh & Easy tasked one of their members, Stephanie, to throw a holiday party for all their employees. Boy oh boy, was this one a stunner! With a palette of black, white, and gold, the hostess sought to marry the formal with the hometown. And if you ask us, she couldn’t have done a more beautiful job. Here’s what Stephanie had to say about the inspiration behind this gorgeous fete:
After having read the book Bread & Wine earlier, my passion and perspective for my time in the kitchen and around my table was renewed. I appreciate, even more, the value that is found when we dedicate our time and energy to the feeding of bodies (and souls). So many of life’s memories are truly made around the table. The message of the book was brewing in the back of my mind when I asked to host a Fresh & Easy sponsored Christmas party. I knew immediately that I wanted to throw a formal dinner party (served family style).
My vision for the Christmas Soiree was classic glam. I love the richness of gold mixed with the boldness of black and white. Black and white striped linens from Munkeboe Linen Rentals gave the ambiance the classic feel I was looking for and Lindsey from Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market helped bring the gold accents with a variety of gold decor.
