If you need to plan a holiday dinner party, but can’t think of what theme to use, consider a Zentangle-Inspired Party. Zentangle is a fun an relaxing drawing method that traditionally uses the colors black, white and gray. You can incorporate these colors into your party as well as give your guest an great experience.
If you already tangle, create a small simple tile with your favorite tangles and incorporate that into your invitations. Zazzle.com has some paper options which are the perfect size for a tangle and party information, plus they make it easy to add your own artwork. If you need an easier option, any black and white invitation or an evite will work just great.
Choosing a party theme based on two or three colors makes planning and decorating an easy task. Party supply stores have a wide range of monochromatic supplies that you can combine into the Zentangle color scheme. Black, white and gray are elegant colors when blended together that also complement any house decor.
For this party, guests can be asked to choose their favorite of the three colors, and dress appropriately. More formal parties can ask for dresses or shirts and ties, while more casual parties can just ask guests to include the colors into their ensemble.
Even with your menu, you can include the Zentangle color theme. You can choose some black or white side dishes to complement your main meal or cook only foods that are completely those colors. White foods might include mashed potatoes, white beans, cauliflower, hummus while black foods could be wild rice, black beans or olives. Anything white or dark chocolate would work well for your trichromatic dinner table.
Book a Zentangle class for your party. If you have one in your area, contact a Certified Zentangle Teacher to plan an event. You can go the traditional method and learn Beginning Zentangle or your class could be project-based, like cards, holiday ornaments or even DIY coffee mugs. If you don’t have a Certified Zentangle Teacher in your area, I do have online classes available through Creative Workshops. More information can be found on this blog post.
With some planning, your dinner party will be a hit. Whether you want to inspire your guests, have a unique get-together or spend a crafty night with friends, a Zentangle-Inspired Holiday Dinner is a great way to do that.
