When I started my blog, I knew I wanted it to be mostly about Interior Design. However, my passion for riding had to be incorporated. In the “about” section of the introduction I wrote “somehow I will make the connection”. I have to say, it has been easier than I thought.
For the past twenty years that I have been riding, the annual Christmas party was mostly held at the barn. Whether it was in the indoor arena or in the aisles with the horses joining us, I learned to associate the textures and aromas ( I’m being kind) with having a good time.The best thing was it did not matter how elaborate the decorations were or how much money was spent on food.
It really was all about being together and having a good time.
A barn party can be a really fun and different way to celebrate an event.
The most popular seems to be weddings.
There never really has to be a good reason for a party, but to use a barn setting adds a special touch that you will never find in a catering hall.
A simple string of lights, freshly picked flowers, and bright colors will overshadow the folding chairs, unmatched tables and even paper plates!
If you are lucky enough to have the resources, some crystal chandeliers ALWAYS add a great touch!
How simple but elegant! Bales of hay covered with cloth.
How about a romantic dinner for two? If you don’t own that many mirrors, just hang all of your blue ribbons.
And if you are lucky enough to own this much Mackenzie Childs, there is no way that you ever go wrong with a setting like this.
I would save this spot for my morning coffee being there is only one chair. What a great way to start the day! But just remember….
Always remember to wear your wellies!
