An Elegant Celebration

elegant celebration dinner partyWe focus so much on theme parties here on The Party Dress….but some occasions just call for pure elegance!  Whether you are planning a wedding, an engagement party, a 60th birthday celebration or an elegant company event – there are always 4 main ideas that are key to making your event one to remember.

  1. A stunning invitation: Bold.  Simple.  Elegant.  Cute.  Whatever your style, make sure that your invitation sets the tone for your party!  I love this navy blue floral invitation from Wedding Paper Divas!  It’s formal enough for a wedding, yet would be festive for a shower or birthday party.
  2. Centerpieces: Using a unique vessel, create a floral centerpiece that pulls together the colors of your palette.  I love the use of the stone urn in this inspiration – it creates a stunning “elegant garden” image for me.
  3. Cocktails: Choose either a signature cocktail, or a fabulous drink display….you don’t need both!
  4. Dessert Table: The trend of the moment and a spectacular surprise for your guests.  The dessert table should be color-coordinated to your specific palette and can serve as a focal point for your event.
