A modern, minimal dinner party

With an ever-changing world full of pesky rules and restrictions, we have collectively adapted our approach to celebrations, and changed the way we drink to those big and small events with our family and friends.

Whilst we may not yet be able to invite 50 of our nearest and dearest over for a party, we can certainly make the most of the intimate gatherings we can have (between lockdowns) and continue to create truly special moments.

Enter: The Humble Dinner Party.

We take every opportunity to forge wonderful memories, and continue to spread positivity and celebrate success in our stride, so of course it was time to have our very own 1st Birthday Party, and reflect on our first year as Coral & Co. A dinner for four, hosted in a beautifully cosy home setting, we opted to keep things minimal, muted and modern. 

 We worked with an array of talented suppliers who made this dinner party just right for the occasion.

Beginning the quiet celebration in a more sophisticated sit-down style meal, an exquisite collection of candles, vases, cutlery, stationary and florals were perfectly styled in our signature Coral & Co. way, to create a dreamy and calming ambience.  

As the perfectionists that we are, we had a good time mixing and matching different setting options before deciding the final look. 

Saving the best part of any dinner party for last, let’s talk desserts. Minimal themes in the dessert world (when done right), can be truly beautiful and eye-catching. All dessert designed incorporated the ivory, light caramel and neutral tones, and the addition of the gold leaf gave that extra finesse! A decadent spread of mumbles, mini cakes and floral fondant cookies were all part of the delicious dessert spread.
