Gone are the days when Melissa Gorga and her family had to eat dinner at their basement bar (catch up on that moment in The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 10 premiere here.) Now that the boutique owner and her husband have finished renovations on their $2.9 million home, they're not only ready to eat in the dining room— they're ready to host a picture-perfect dinner party replete with shimmering decor.
Melissa's Instagram Stories from November 7 let her followers peek inside the intimate bash, which featured an Italian feast that a professional chef prepared onsite. After sampling meats and cheeses from a charcuterie board, guests had pumpkin risotto served inside an actual pumpkin.
Do you remember Melissa's 39th birthday cake? Silver is kind of her thing. So it only makes sense that the feast was served against a sleek, silvery backdrop. The charger plates glittered, and a metallic branch added a little autumnal punch. There were also votives glowing in silver jars. Keep scrolling to see inside the beautifully glinting soiree.
