I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend! We took a little time off from blogging and designing orders to spend time with family and friends and just RELAX!! We are back today with some serious inspiration for you from Chris Nease of Celebrations at Home. She put together this colorful party shoot for the holiday issue of The Party Dress Magazine. Read on for all of the sparkling details from Chris:
This new years eve party is festive and family friendly with its bright colors and glittery accents. Inspired by a trio of vases I had in fuchsia, purple, and aqua blue, I designed a party with bright colors and added a whimsical touch with a harlequin pattern. To tie in the countdown aspect of the night, I place a clock and hour glasses as part of the decor. The result is a space that is attractive to both kids and adults.
Bonbons from Bedazzle My Bonbon were the perfect go-to treat to make this dessert display shine. Some were placed on Pastry Pedestals and some were placed on top of cupcakes with coordinating wrappers. Other treats were colorful Sixlets inserted into clear ornaments and tied with an inspirational word for the New Year.
Drinks are divided with blue tinted juice available for the children, and mini bottles of champagne for the adults. To keep the color scheme uniform, I covered the gold foil on top of the bottles with pink foil and tied it along with a straw. Homemade poppers can be opened at midnight and contain candy kisses – for a midnight kiss of course! Guests can also write down their new year’s resolutions and pin them to the board above. Some final details of our family-friendly new year’s party are colorful horns, noise makers, and masks to help celebrate with.
