Christmas Series: Desert Tables

My favorite part of hosting a chic party has to be the desert table. It’s fun, usually the center of attention + can be themed to match whatever occasion you’re wanting to create. In our case, we are celebrating Christmas (YAY) so I’ve shared some desert table inspiration in preparation for this holiday season.

Tori launched her latest book (of 5!) – Celebratori this month, where she dishes on favorite menus, party ideas + advice for anyone looking to throw a perfect party on a budget!

Oscar Party

With the Oscars only a short few days away, it’s time to start planning your perfect Oscar viewing party! If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you’ll know by now that I love to plan a good party!

Create fun decor + Oscar-inspired focal points to have set up in your ‘viewing room’. Fill large glass containers with gold colored candies or saved wine corks. Create custom invites on evite.com or socializr.com to track RSVP’s, save paper + spread the word!

It’s the Oscars afterall, so break out the sparkling cava, brut, prosecco or champagne. Add frozen raspberries or straberry slices to give your beverages an esay cocktail-style upgrade

Chanel a luxe, elegant vibe + sophisticated ambiance with the same basics you’d use for any party

Serve fresh popcorn in custom bags + have a seasoning bar set up for your guests to choose any flavor of their preferred choice!

Must-haves: fresh cut flowers, real china (not paper plates!), stemware + napkins

Once the show is over, make your guests feel like VIPs with an end-of-the-night swag bag filled with inexpensive but fun freebies like packs of candy, lollipops, bubble wands, notepads etc.

Enjoy!

Be Mine XO

No matter how big or small the gesture is, it can have just as much of an impact! Here are some lovely V-day ideas for you to pass on to your loves!!

Hand-made stationery is a sweet, genuine way to say I love you! Not often these days, do people mail notes to show they care – take advantage of this holiday + write a v-day note to all you’re besties who you don’t see nearly as much as you’d like!

Who says V-day isn’t big enough of a holiday to throw a party? I’ll take ANY excuse! Print customizable labels, create + assemble a colorful candy-bar + make a reason to celebrate the loves of your life!
