I’ve met a lot of blogger “friends” over the last 4 years, but Lili of Swanky Chic Fete is one of my favorites! Her blog radiates her friendly personality and love for parties, fashion and the latest products. I have worked with Lili a couple times previously, and she also hosted a WH Hostess trunk show for us last holiday season! I was so pleased when she asked me to help her create a preppy golf-themed party for her soon-to-be 6 year old, Aston. Especially when she mentioned she wanted to forgo the traditional golf colors/patterns for a more “summer Ralph Lauren” madras plaid!
Since Lili was able to hand deliver the party invitations, we had flexibility to get a little creative. I designed a 5-page mini booklet to house the party details, which was placed in a crisp white box with some shredded paper “grass” and a golf ball. The boxes were sealed with a striped grosgrain ribbon and a madras plaid sticker featuring our custom “The Aston Golf Classic” logo.
The kids table were dressed with a madras runner over a white tablecloth. Extra fabric were sewn for accent pillows for the patio furniture. Polka dot blue and green balloons also were scattered on the backyard lawn.
The 3-tier cake featured a preppy stripe, mini golf balls, and frosting that looks like grass peeking out of the bottom of the cake.
