Cobalt Blue + Gold Holiday Dinner Party

Are you feeling abundantly dosed in Christmas yet?

I swear everywhere I turn there is a red and green Christmas tree covered in glitter. And trust me, I’m a HUGE fan of glitter, but I am a little bored with the red and green. I know, I know, they are the “traditional” Christmas colors.

But answer me honestly; have you really NEVER gotten just the tiniest drop of annoyance seeing red and green everywhere? Something tells me you likely had at one point or another.

Today I wanted to share with you some inspiration for those of you potentially hosting your own dinner party this holiday season. Why not consider a nice cobalt blue and bright yellow gold? They mix up the traditional holiday décor so well, and transition beautifully into New Year’s celebrations.
