The Invitations ^
A great party starts with a fun invitation to your guests. As the first thing that your guests see, make sure the invitation sets the mood for your party. Gives them a little peek into what to expect.
The Cocktails ^
All good parties have some great drinks! Here are some of our favorite creations and plays on some great winter cocktails to impress your guests. Moscow Mule (because the copper mugs!) a Classic Negroni, and of course champagne! Greet your guests with a drink and you have them from the moment they walk in.
Deck the Halls ^
For your dinner party, we recommend keeping things minimal, mostly black and white, but add that holiday sparkle and glitter with mixed metallic. Add in some lights, a great rug, pretty champagne flutes and you are set. OH and don't forget to wrap your presents and add some fun calligraphy tags, champagne stirrers for mixers, glitter rims of glasses, etc. Pro Tip: Dress up some plain simple wrapping paper with stripes of washi tape for a fun pop!
Setting the Table
For your pretent holiday party, we love the idea of a glittering white linen, keeping the tablescapes white and minimal, sparkling like snow on a sunny day! Hanging a mix of greenery above the tables, mixing various metallics, also touches of decor that is light and delicate adds a level of sophistication to any sparkle! Other festive touches include calligraphy menus and name places, DIY glitter centerpieces, including copper to match the flatware and Moscow Mule mugs for cocktails. Pro Tip: Add some fun floral pieces in various heights, and some fun modern taper candles and suspended candelabras for impressive illusions!
Whatever you do this NYE, we hope you have fun, stay safe and ring in 2018 with people that you love!
