The next couple of months of the year is all about gathering loved ones and celebrating togetherness. As awesome as all the parties and festivities are, it can get pretty overwhelming mentally and financially. Not gonna lie, during this season, I used to stress over making sure all the table settings and decor looked on point and not go crazy with my credit card. Little did I realize is that you can still pull off a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing party without breaking the bank. Everyone knows that paper flatware is the way to go for easy party planning, but it’s time to think outside the box. Paper plates, especially cute ones, can also make excellent and inexpensive party decor! The Brit + Co line for Cheeky has everything you need to host your next dinner party this fall. You can find our Cheeky products in Target stores and at Target.com for a limited time.1. Set A Mandala Table
Standing amid the bustling streets of Hanoi’s Old Quarter is one of my fondest memories of Vietnam. Your senses are abuzz – and that’s not just the Vietnamese coffee kicking in. The smells from street food and the sounds of vendors is awakening. And bicycle after bicycle, packed high with flowers, vegetables and fruit, are like explosions of color whizzing by. It’s like nothing you’ll ever experience, which is why I absolutely love this series of bicycle vendors from above, photographed by Loes Heerink. The photographer posts up on different bridges around Hanoi to capture the vendors as they ride beneath her. Although there’s no shortage of bicycle vendors, you can imagine how much patience it requires to capture the right shot. Can you imagine toting around all of that beautiful cargo on a single bike?! Amazing.
