The summer solstice is the perfect time for an astrology themed dinner party! I invited all my girlfriends and asked them to bring a new friend along so we could all meet new people. Of course it ended up raining that night, so I got two 10×10 pop up tents with beige tops. I hungContinue reading “Astrology Mixer”
Nothing says 50 better than stuffing your face with ice cream! For this birthday celebration, we asked guests to bring their favorite ice cream toppings and set up a sundae bar. I made a banner that said “Sundae Funday” and underneath, set up toppings bowls with labels for people to write their names. We alsoContinue reading “50th Ice Cream Social”
I’ve always loved a citrus theme and decided to take it full on orange for Mother’s Day. We did a sit down brunch with a white table cloth topped with greenery, dried oranges, yellow flowers and string lights with clipped on photos. Each place setting got a white glass plate, orange napkin, wine glass andContinue reading “Orange-y Mother’s Day Brunch”
There is a dumpling in almost every culture! That was the idea behind this party. Every couple/guest brought a different kind of dumpling and a matching alcohol. We had raviolis + wine, mandu + soju, pierogies + polish beer, gyoza + sake, and empanadas + beer. Each guest got a turn in the kitchen andContinue reading “Dumpling Birthday Party”
St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t have to be all about partying, it can be a *mature* adult brunch too. I set up a cutesy brunch tablescape, perfect for sipping mimosas. I found a green clover/flower-y table runner and topped that with green and white candles. The center piece was a light green plant and I addedContinue reading “St. Patrick’s Day Brunch”
This is a birthday party for the astrology lover! We had six guests – everyone chose a cocktail from the Mixology of Astrology recipe book, brought ingredients and glasses, and then presented to the group. Of course we did a taste testing after each one. DECORI tried to keep it simple and choose a blueContinue reading “Astrology Cocktail Birthday Party”
Since we can’t go to any sporting events, I decided to create one at home for a 30th birthday party. I did my best to bring Little Caesar’s Arena vibes to a living room. DECORI hung up red curtains and put a “happy pucking birthday” banner across it for photo opportunities. I hung up redContinue reading “Red Wings 30th Birthday Party”
Summer calls for ice cream and ice cream calls for a party! Below is how I planned a full on ice cream themed bash for friends. (My ice cream obsession includes two cone tattoos and lots of ice cream themed home decor.)
Obviously, the most important thing at this party. I set up a station where people could make their own sundaes! I asked each guest to bring their favorite topping. I got a bunch of basic ice cream types (chocolate base, vanilla base, mint base, etc.) and the put all the toppings out in cute bowls. Make sure you have a good mix of hard toppings (sprinkles, oreos, candy) and liquid (hot fudge, chocolate syrup, caramel).
It didn’t feel quite right to be full on red, white and blue this year. I decided to do a tropical theme and integrated some stars for tradition.
I tried to stick to turquoise/green, pink, white and silver/gold decor. I hung up star and tropical garlands. And found a cute pink flamingo.
I’ve always loved the vibes of the Swedish celebration of Midsummer to commemorate the first day of the season. I decided to try my own version this year. I did my best to research what actually happens in Sweden, hopefully I didn’t butcher the holiday too much.
