Interior Envy: Upping Your Dinner Party Game

Interior Envy: Upping Your Dinner Party Game

The Sprinkles of Style team is back with a brand new post and it's time to 'up' your dinner party game and make your guests feel super-welcome along wth a few inspiration features too. 

Staying in, is the new going out and is a great alternative for those nights when you're trying to save money or when you simply want to stay home and relax.

Therefore, a dinner party could be the best way to spend an evening with family and friends - even if your cooking skills aren't up to scratch, it's all about having fun and of course that means being in a lovely environment so at Sprinkles of Style HQ - we're writing up this post. 

You really don't need to take on a huge renovation project BUT you can update your interior decor theme to make sure you host an evening in an environment that's always comfortable, ambient and so-to-speak a haven for you, your family and friends to relax in. 

Furniture and Theme

If you’re going to invest in dining room furniture then it's worth looking at a number of different styles so that you'll have something which will last you for years - think of it as an investment piece for your home.

 Classic and timeless tables and chairs will compliment both neutral and bold colours so it's worth choosing neutral items which you can then change with different accessories and colour-themes. For instance, look at the picture on the right - the table is wooden and neutral however all the statement and style comes from the bold colours and different textures. This is one of the best ways to make a difference in your home and this way, you can continuously change the colour-theme without having to think about the table. 

Check out websites like which help you to discover how you can incorporate different dining furniture to your home. 

Think about your style, your home and what you think will suit you and your needs for the coming years. 



Dining spaces and rooms in general rely on good lighting. You really don't want to have cold lighting in any room as that will make you and your guests feel extremely unwelcome and it's generally not the correct lighting to have in your home. 

Always choose (and look for) warm lighting - this is perfect for every room around your home and instantly transforms the room, making you feel relaxed, comfortable and at ease which is just what you want. 

Don't forget to take a look at websites like which are perfect for gaining inspiration!

    I love the idea of holding a fancy dinner party! A low, big table with lots of cushions would be so lovely!

    I love dining in and would definitely do it more often with some awesome interior decor of the dining room! I love that there are so many ways to make the overall atmosphere feel great. I’m 100% about the lighting! I prefer having more lights so I can see what’s going on but don’t want the room to be blinding either. Thanks for sharing :).
