I love to throw parties and have gathering with my family and friends, that’s the planner in me. I think the key to a good party, it good food, laughter and a warm atmosphere which is what inspired me with this year’s concept. I debated on which colors to use for this year’s party. I wanted something that screamed festive yet would be warm and classic. I decided on black and antique gold with a hint of cream.
For my design, I wanted to make sure that all of my family and friends joining us would feel the love, happiness and festive spirit of the night.
First, I created chair tags with the words Family, Friends, Celebrate, Cheers, Party and Love to ignite those feelings of closeness amongst our guests. I love things to be textured so I used three types of card-stock for the textured look.
Second, I created name tags for each guest. I want everyone to feel special when they walk into our home.
Third, I wanted to pull in some of my favorite elements. I love a little touch of bling, candles and flowers. So what a perfect pairing the rhinestone candle holders that I used for vases (which I found as Michaels) and cream roses. I put a few roses in each and cut-out the words Happy New Year and put them in the floral arrangements. I think this added just the right amount of flowers without going over the top and taking away from the festive atmosphere. I added a few candles to give it a glowing and warm feeling while we eat dinner.
For a final table component, I wanted to add a little wow factor to my table. I’m always looking for something different to add to my concept to make it “Pop” as I say. This is when I found this neat little idea on Pinterest about making starburst out of Styrofoam and toothpicks. I had so much fun playing around with this idea, and I used the starburst as a place setting accent. I didn’t want just a plain old table cloth, but instead create something different to add a pop to the overall table look. This is when I created my own paper table runner! Yes the table runner is made of metallic card stock. I cut out 8 inch circles and created a pattern for a fabulous table runner.
And lastly, as we begin to count down to the near year, I created this back drop for our friends and family to gather around as we countdown to 2014. I used votive holders in clear and frosted gold. I used more of the starburst that I created. To top off the design I used 4 crackled vases and put 2013, I also cut out a 4 so once the countdown is finished, I’ll change it to read 2014 as we continue to party the night away.
The beauty of this design, is that most of the elements I used came from Michael’s. All it takes is a little bit of creativity and a lot of love.
