Are you guys getting pumped for a month full of holiday parties? All of us here at 100LC have definitely hosted + attended our share of gatherings. It’s easy to do a basic “holiday” vibe since there’s so much to love about this time of year, but it’s also super fun to take it a step further and create a real theme for your fête like we did when styling up this fondue party with Crate and Barrel. Once we landed on fondue, we were *really* on a roll, so we gave it a retro spin too… Why not?

Aren’t these two so cute? BTW, for all you recently engageds, you can add all the entertaining necessities to your Gift Registry when planning an engagement party and be able to use all these pieces when celebrating with those same friends + fam for holidays to come.

Tip: Hang a wreath above your bar cart for a festive little gathering place. Moon Canyon always wows us with those florals!

We’ve for sure mentioned that we can’t get enough of the Jars Tourron Black Dinner Plates for a modern place setting, and the great thing about them is that you really just need a fun pop of color like these aqua blue napkins to complete the look. Record menus = a fab bonus if you’re going with the Mad Men-esque theme we had going on!

(Pssst, if you serve up deviled eggs at all, you totally want to add the White Deviled Egg Tray to your registry. Specialty items like this and the Cast Iron Fondue Set shown above are sure to make you think fondly of your wedding when breaking them out for events to come.)

Our DIY copper tape tree is kinda neat too, right? With something as playful as a retro theme, it’s nice to have some laid back decor that you can pair with the more elegant serveware.
