Game Night Dinner Party

I recently hosted a Cards Against Humanity dinner party. My whole goal was to get a fun group of ladies together to play the game. But I wanted to class it up a bit - the game is super dirty - so we did a more formal dinner party. Guests all brought a main dish and we had appetizers and dessert as well. The weather has been gorgeous so I hosted cocktails and apps inside and then we went outside for dinner and game playing. This was a great choice since we stayed up until midnight laughing hysterically. I decided the colors would be black and white to match the game but add a pop of color.

Apps were placed on the dining room table. We used white craft paper on the table and black/white scrapbook paper under the plates. The plates are old and from the Target Missoni line.
As guests walked outside they were greeted by a decorated coffee table. We placed all of the wine bottles here during dinner. The cups, napkins, cake plate and ice bucket are all from the Oh Joy! for Target line out this past spring. The light up question mark also sold at Target and are in stores now.
The game itself was displayed on a side table. We used the larger plug in ? here. Also sold at Target.
The dining table featured paper place mats (so easy at clean up), missoni chevron plates from Target, napkins tied with ribbon to look like bows and Oh Joy! for Target cups filled with flowers and vases. We used mason jars for water and printed place cards in a chalk font.

 The entire evening was fantastic. I can't wait to throw my next party.
