Holiday parties are a wonderful way for families and friends to get together and spend quality time catching up over delicious food and drinks. Whether you’re having a family gathering or small dinner parties for friends or co-workers, the decorations are an important detail. While many people choose to decorate with traditional Christmas colors such as red and green, some people might draw décor inspiration from something more colorful, like a peacock-colored palette. Here are some ideas of how to deck the halls with vivid blues, bright greens, and shimmering gold.
Setting the Table for Peacock Themed Holiday Party
To wow your guests with an elegant peacock inspired table setting, begin with a deep blue or turquoise tablecloth and a lime green runner. Set the table with square gold charger plates, which can be found in many stores such as Target. Place smaller lime green plates on top of the charger plates and display a napkin of the same color that you chose for your tablecloth on top of the dinner plate tied with a gold ribbon. You can tuck a peacock feather (found at many craft stores) underneath the ribbon. You can also fold napkins into gold napkin rings that coordinate with the color of your charger plates.
For a centerpiece, place a peacock feather wreath, such as this one from Pier 1 Imports, in the center of the table. You can place a gold tabletop ornament tree in the middle of the wreath and decorate it with glittery miniature jewel-toned ornaments in teal, lime green, and deep blue. If you have a larger table that needs space filled in, you can further decorate with smaller freestanding gold ornaments in festive shapes or small clear vases filled with coordinating colored craft gems and peacock feathers, but don’t overdo it with the decorations. Your guests will still want enough room to dine in comfort.
When serving drinks at a holiday party with a peacock theme, you may want to look for a signature drink recipe that will yield a cocktail that is blue or green and then serve those drinks in elegant clear champagne flutes or funky martini glasses with blue stems. If you want to go with a different colored beverage, look for cobalt blue glasses to tie in with the peacock theme.
