Inspiring Mood Boards: Elegant College Dinner Party

Here at Orchid Events, we love planning events. Any type of events! Right now we are planning a dinner party for Dartmouth College. Founded in 1769, Dartmouth is a member of the Ivy League and consistently ranks among the world’s greatest academic institutions. In today’s mood board we aim to reflect the liberal arts of Dartmouth College in a classic, elegant and sophisticated look.


First of all the dinner party will be held at the Penthouse and Pavilion of the Dorchester Hotel in London. Located on the 8th floor of the Hotel this suite connects  rooms with a private terrace that has exquisite views of Mayfair and the London skyline. The rooms were designed by Oliver Messel. The theater set designer encapsulated the ambiance of the enchanted forest in Sleeping Beauty. This suite is the perfect setting for an intimate dinner party.
