A Starry Night To Remember, Hostess Stephanie Booth Shafran Brought Celestial Delights To Her Guests On New Year's With A Zodiac Themed Dinner Party!

Embroidered Moon & Stars… Divine Details!

For her New Year’s Dinner Party, hostess extraordinaire Stephanie Booth Shafran chose to entertain her guests with an out-of-this-world party, using astrological motifs and the theme of the Zodiac to set the tone. Isn’t it gorgeous? I love the color scheme, with beautiful blue candle-sticks, gold-embroidered napkins, and stars everywhere….

In California, we’re always dining outside, so I set up the tables in the loggia for a true dinner under the stars. I think that’s what made this so successful, that it aligned so well with the setting. Enjoying the night sky was an organic—and beautiful—part of the experience.

Midnight Blue, Heavenly!

I’ve always been captivated by astrology because I believe there’s more to life than meets the eye.

A gorgeous feature lies in the astrological china by the Milanese ceramicist Costanza Paravicini.

Discovered in her favorite tableware shop, Talmaris, Paris, Stephanie Booth Shafran procured a set of gold-trimmed porcelain, on them, artistic interpretations of the zodiac.

They were so unique and sophisticated, without being fussy

Entertaining Master Stephanie Booth Shafran hired a popular Los Angeles psychic to do readings at cocktail hour, and at each setting, she placed golden scrolls detailing guests’ personality traits based on their astrological sign, sparking conversation for guests who weren’t well acquainted.

This is something that can be done easily, thanks to free online birth calculators like this one, and so many descriptions of the Zodiac Signs available online.

 I’d asked guests to share their birthday with their RSVP, which created an element of mystery…

The special celestial zodiac-inspired party appears in Booth Shafran’s new book You’re Invited: Classic, Elegant Entertaining (Rizzoli), on sale now.
