Moody and Organic Rehearsal Dinner Party

Kapnos in Washington DC has a private room that is ideal for your rehearsal dinner party for up to 50 guests. When you celebrate there, about half of your guests will sit at this long banquette, which is ideal for dressing up! Tremendous thanks to Deb Lindsey for these beautiful photos!

Paperzest took the colors that already lived in the dining room, and incorporated them into this fabulous rehearsal dinner invitation suite. The chocolate, mustard and paprika color palette (how is that for foodie rehearsal dinner inspiration?) is perfect for this masculine, moody event space and it will be a fun surprise for your guests to get in the mail. I am loving the RSVP postcard with a photo of Kapnos on the front. Meant To Be Calligraphy also contributed to this beautiful stationery set.

Table space is hard to come by in restaurants, such as Kapnos, that serve a family-style menu. Elegance & Simplicity made long and narrow centerpieces and I turned them sideways to better accommodate the food plates to come! The natural wood boxes fit perfectly in the room, and the whimsical and bright yellow, orange and red flowers are tempered by the muted linen they sit on.

Purple water goblets and rattan charger plates from DC Rental round out this organic, textural design. I love these chair signs, and I love the lemon leaves used at each place setting. The menu cards and place cards are backed by the same print that was used in the envelope liner, keeping the stationery cohesive throughout.
