How to Clebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Remember! Celebrate! Act!

Celebrate the life and achievements of Martin Luther King Jr., an influential American civil rights leader, well-known for his campaigns to end racial segregation and achieve racial equality in the United States. In honor of this day, organize a party for your closest friends and family members to encourage them to remember the injustices that Dr. King fought. To remember his fight for the freedom, equality, and dignity of all races and peoples! And don't worry, Smarty Had A Party is here to help you! With our fantastic assortment of tableware pieces, party supplies, and party inspiration that we prepared in this blog post, you will easily organize an enchanting party in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. that will for sure be a long time remembered! And that's not all Smarties - we prepare a phenomenal MLK Day Sale! Just use our COUPON CODE: MLK15 and get 15% OFF SITEWIDE!

If you haven't set up already, start by getting the chairs and tables out of storage. Once everything is in its place, it's time to accessorize for the perfect Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration. Start your party preparation with a red, white, and blue color scheme to make a lovely first impression on your guests and get everyone in the mood.
When it comes to decorating any table, it is wise to set things in motion with a beautiful backdrop to create a festive ambiance and draw attention to your table. We have opted for a gorgeous navy blue tablecloth and placed a sparkling metallic white table runner on top.
As soon as the foundation for our table was ready, it was time to move on to the centerpieces. We opted for carafes that we filled with red, blue, and white crystals as the main centerpiece for our tablescape. These decorative carafes will complement the place settings perfectly.

Your party won’t be complete without stunning plastic dinnerware. Since we wanted to complete the look beautifully, we have decided on blue, red, and white plates, a shiny metallic silver flatware set, and crystal clear hard plastic tumblers positioned on the side for a harmonized appeal. Our premium plates come in three sizes, so start by serving the main course on 9.5" Red Square Plastic Dinner Plates (sturdy and large enough to hold a huge feast), appetizers on 8" White Square Plastic Appetizer/ Salad Plates, and dessert on 6.5" Blue Square Plastic Cake Plates.

Though we could have left this setup without any additional decorations, we felt that something was missing. To fix things up, we have complemented our table decoration with red, white, and blue paper flowers, which we placed on plates and carafes and add a perfect finishing touch to our table setting.

In the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, remember to MAKE IT A DAY ON, NOT A DAY OFF, for you and those around you!

Linens

Loving the blue rosette table runners? Us too! Nothing says you can't use two. We put two blue rosette table runners next to one another over a gold satin tablecloth so that we could show more of that beautiful navy blue color.

Table Centerpieces

As soon as the foundation for our New Year tablescape was ready, it was time to move on to the centerpieces. We decided to decorate our table with a couple of lovely flower vase centerpieces for a riveting posh allure. We have opted for chic gold zircons vases as the base for our New Year table flower arrangements, which we decorated with a blue satin bow. We bunched up some luscious white flowers and brought a refreshing flair to our party table.

Place Setting

Once the tabletop decorations were complete, laying out exquisite place settings to enhance our New Year's Eve party was next on the agenda. For the dinnerware, we were looking for beautifully designed chargers that would infuse a dramatic opulence into our New Year table setting. Hence, we have coupled gold charger plates adorned with beaded rims with beautiful white with blue and gold harmony rim plastic dinnerware value set on top along with a set of gold disposable silverware and clear plastic pedestal wine glasses positioned on the side for a harmonized appeal. However, when it came to picking napkins, we didn’t look any further than our navy blue dinner napkins, which have beautifully tied all our elegant New Year's table settings together.
No doubt, organizing even small parties will take lots of planning and effort, but being able to meet your loved ones in-person makes everything worthwhile. Don’t you agree? This blue and gold New Year's Eve table setting is classy, modish, and downright festive, and will for sure impress all your friends and family. We hope you have gathered enough inspiration from this blog to create an elegant and magical ambiance for New Year's Eve. Have a great time Smarties!

Winter Wonderland Christmas Table Setting

With the temperature dropping down and the sky showering those fluffy softballs upon us, be prepared for the most fascinating and enchanting time of the year. Yes, winter is finally here with all its glory! Filling your hearts with joy, warmth, and hope winter is the season of festivities and togetherness. Christmas, the day of presents, families, a jolly man with a beard in a red suit fully clad with white fur and a belt buckle will soon be visiting the homes of holiday party planners. So with the holiday season in full swing and Christmas right around the corner, we thought now is the perfect time to channel our inner snow queen and set up a Winter Wonderland Christmas Table Setting to tap into the sensational wintry charm.
The key to any festive holiday table is choosing the right tableware and statement pieces ahead of time, so you're ready to create an elegant and merry table when all of your party guests come knocking. But don't worry, Smarty Had A Party has prepared the perfect Christmas presents for all of you Smarties. We prepare a majestic Winter Wonderland Christmas Table Setting to inspire you and bring the snowy splendor into your party space without the bitter cold. Keep on reading to know exactly how we have arranged an enchanting winter wonderland that elegantly captures the ethereal beauty of the season. And that's not all Smarties we also prepared a fantastic Christmas Sale! Just use our COUPON CODE: CHRISTMAS20 and get 20% OFF SITEWIDE to supply all the Smarty's disposable partyware you need for the most beautiful and joyful Christmas dinner!
Table decor for Christmas is one of the prime staples for the festive holiday season. Color schemes for Christmas have traditionally relied on a plethora of red and green. Sure, such a palette will absolutely scream Christmas, but when it comes to decorating a winter wonderland table setting, there is no doubt that a soothing white color palette pops into mind. Thus, to imbue a surreal winter wonderland vibe into our setup we decided to set a wonderland of white, silver, ivory, and blue.
We set the ball rolling by creating a base for the tablescape. We decided to throw in shimmering blue tones into the mix and swathed a blue tablecloth over the table. Moreover, we have also unfurled a silver crystal table runner along the middle of our tablescape. Next, we bring in white chivari chairs to complement our lavish winter wonderland theme and color scheme.
As soon as the basics were done, we moved on to the place settings. For the dinnerware, we were in search of plates with unique designs to emulate the distinctive Winter Wonderland Theme. Thus, we took our Silver Charger Plates and paired them with our beautiful Ivory Vintage Disposable Plastic Dinnerware Value Set. In order to elevate our table arrangements up a notch, we also positioned fabulous crystal clear champagne flutes, clear wine glasses, and baroque silver disposable flatware, along with the plates for an elegant and cohesive winter wonderland table setting. However, when it came to picking dinner napkins, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that we have opted for ivory polyester linen napkins that ingeniously tied in with the rest of the decor. And since we were going for a festive look, choosing an elegant diamond napkin ring was a great way to add glamour to the tablescape.
As far as centerpieces go, classic designs of Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettia are a sure-fire way to stay true to the holiday spirit, but centering an enchanting centerpiece that’ll highlight the winter wonderland theme was our preference. To make a grand impact, we choose a fabulous crystal chain tree centerpiece. Combining the glistening luster of silver metal with the crystal clarity of dazzling diamond acrylic pendants, this whimsical tree centerpiece will look majestic on the table.
 
 With all that shine, shimmer, sparkle, and glimmer, this tablescape is the perfect embodiment of a winter wonderland theme, isn’t it! Now that it’s all set, it's time to invite some friends over for dinner. I hope this Winter Wonderland Christmas Table Setting provides a little inspiration for your holiday decorating and entertaining!
