Please welcome Brynn of chartreuse & a twist!
I cannot express enough how much I heart today’s guest! Brynn’s ultra-creativity gets me totally energized every time I visit her bright and happy page, chartreuse & a twist. I urge you to check out her series the “Color Collective” every Tuesday, where she creates collages based on a different hue every week. You’ll leave with your day improved…trust!
I am Brynn of chartreuse & a twist
and I am so incredibly happy to be here with all of you today!
I am a huge fan of Erika for so many reasons, as I am sure you all are too!
Her creativity, style & talent are so inspiring to me…
so when she inquired for me to do a guest post, I was beside myself!
It wasn’t too challenging to pick a topic…
if there are two things I know about ‘that girl’, erika, it is
#1 – she loves gold! & #2 – she is a fabulous hostess!
so, today i have for you ‘the golden hostess’…
a little guide on how to keep your entertaining skills nice ‘n’ shiny!
First thing is first…set your table…
serve from ceramic bowls & golden dipped serving utensils / a salad would look so lovely in pretty petal bowls / eat from clean, simple white plates & golden flatware / serve special dishes from a brass tray
always make sure your guests have a drink in hand…
stock your bar cart with a pretty whiskey decanter & matching glassware / impress guests with a unique brass crescent bottle opener / shake up some fire & ice martinis with a golden rim
& a prepared hostess always has tea & coffee on hand…why not a gold french press, a pretty teapot or golden ‘drip tease’ mugs?
the icing on the cake is an effortlessly decorated space…
seat your guests in gold add a vintage lighting fixture, a funky vase, brass tea light holders, decorative gold leaf papier-mâché bowls (so pretty for fruit) / a hint of quirkiness never hurts…like this gold capped gnome cookie jar …and always gets conversation flowing!
Thank you SO much, Erika, for having me over today!
And it is so lovely to meet you all! Feel free to pop on over to
chartreuse & a twist anytime 🙂 XO Brynn
Brynn, you know me so well.
