A new Denver company promises to take the hassle out of entertaining.
Cloth + Gold is an online one-stop shop for dinner party essentials. The company will deliver all the ingredients for expertly set table directly to your door and retrieve them when the party’s over — no dishwashing required.
“Far too often, we get caught up in daily living and our online lives that we forget to actually live in the moment and make memories with those we care about,” says Bridget Rogers, the company’s founder. “I’ve had some of the best nights of my life at dinner parties — totally unplugged — and want to make it as easy as possible for others to share meaningful experiences with great friends, family, food and drinks in the comfort of their own homes.”
Each Cloth + Gold table is expertly planned and delivered straight to the host’s door. The company offers six styles of tables, with frequent additions based on new trends and seasonal occasions. Each table includes complete place settings, including charger, dinner and salad plates; wine glasses; flatware; and cloth napkins. A runner and centerpiece accessories also are provided. Hosts can purchase in increments of four for up to 40 guests.
Pricing ranges from $17 to $24 per place setting and is all-inclusive with delivery, cleaning and pickup. Tablescapes have a three-day rental period and can be ordered with at least seven days’ notice.
Cloth + Gold also provides a recommended playlist; suggested menu, including recipes; entertaining tips; example photos; and a timeline to ensure everything runs as smoothly as possible. Hosts can purchase additional party supplies such as candles, cake toppers and cocktail services from Cloth + Gold’s online shop.
“Our goal is to regain the elegance and excitement of the social gathering without the hassle, Rogers says. “We want to create beautiful, celebratory experiences, where people are inspired to put down their phones, pick up their forks and truly connect.”
