How To Curate A Dazzling Dark Dinner Party

Everything you need for your next evening soiree.

This month, as the evenings get darker and the weather colder, it's time to turn to the delights of the home for glorious get-togethers. In true Halloween and Rockett St George style, we always love a dark-themed dinner party. As such, there's nothing more delightful than a glow of a gorgeous candle, warming food and even better company! So, to get inspired and be the hostess with the mostess, see below to discover our dark dinner party guide...

Marvellous Mood Lighting

The key to a brilliant atmosphere in the darker months is of course marvellous mood lighting! So, whether your dining area needs that extra twinkle of an evening, a selection of lighting choices is imperative. As such, a combination of table lamps, wall lights and a fabulous focal ceiling light will indeed help you set the mood in your space. Finally, don't forget to inject interest into your dinner party scheme with fun features such as glowing neons or a stunning-shaped light bulb which could be styled on a statement drinks trolley! What's not to love?!

Quirky Table Setting

When setting the table, you can add dazzling dark details for a spooky-themed dinner party or a get-together with a quirky edge. During the autumn months, we love a splash of daring dark decor for a sophisticated yet sexy scheme. So, choose golds, charcoal greys and beautiful black to elevate the look of your table design this season. On top of this, the glorious glow of a candle at your table setting is a must to illuminate and add magic to the space.

Fearlessly Fabulous Accessories

For a dinner party during the Halloween season and beyond, you can get really creative with your accessories. Whether it be going sumptuous and sultry with some divine designs or adding a wicked sense of humour to the space with art or ornaments, these pieces are perfect for a touch of grown-up glamour.

So, if you adore the spirit of Halloween and want to weave that into your dining space, don't be afraid to go all-out eccentric. Often, it's the subtle touches, with a nod to your theme that makes for an oh-so-characterful space. Plus, there's no such thing as being too over the top when it comes to a fabulous themed party! And, we have just the accessories for it!

Fantastic Food

Finally, your dazzling dark dinner party needs fantastic food! We say, getting creative at your with your food need not be complicated. But, as the host of such a fabulous night, the last thing you want is to be swept up in the kitchen. So, for this reason, we love easy food, pretty presentation and sharing plates. Pair that with some divine drinks and you have yourself a tremendous themed evening!

There's nothing not to love about an Autumnal Charcuterie Board. Plus, for Halloween, you can embellish your creation with some spooky accessories and perhaps some pumpkins too. As such, we're simply loving this Black Pasta Recipe for the main course. Perfect for this season and ultra-easy to prepare, the black mushroom pasta main course will be a show-stopping dish for all to adore. These two fabulous recipes combined will guarantee a brilliant night.
