And we LOVE this skull invite from Wiley Valentine! Perfect for your slightly dark holiday party!
Luxe paperie has so many pretty invite options.
Tell, people if you want them to get extra dolled up for your party.
"Classic Cocktail Attire Please!"
will help direct your guests when they are getting ready.
Remember to get your invitations out at least 2 weeks ahead, although 4 is better! The sooner you let people know about your fun cocktail party, more guests will be able to save your night in this party heavy season!
So the guest list is made and the invitations have gone out. At this point we hope you have some sort of dream in your head about they style of your party... So that means it is time to talk drinks. Signature cocktails are always fun at a party,
here are a few fall and winter style drinks that may work for your soiree.
If we are looking back to the 50's for inspiration for our Cocktail Party, then why not have a punch bowl? Try this Blood Orange punch! So easy for you, you mix it all together once, set it out and Viola!! Mixed drinks for your guests all night!
Now, because this is a cocktail party and not a dinner party, you are only required to have horsd' oeuvres but if your party runs through the dinner hours say from 7-10pm then you want to have enough hors d' oeuvres to feed hungry people!
Start with the basics, cheese plates. It always looks super fancy when you take a nice round of brie or a log of delicious goat cheese and cover it with honey and crumbled nuts. Easy and gourmet!
Set cheesy bread sticks in cups around your house.
Hit up Trader Joes for a nice selection of baked goodies. They have a pretty vast selection of affordable delicious finger food for your party.
And most important of all, don't forget the desert table! Because sweets make every party, that much better!
Don't spend your whole day baking... Just swing by the local bakery!
Remember this party is meant to be simple for you, not exhausting!
Set the mood at your house with candles and soft lighting.
Throw around a few floor pillows and make sure you have lots of side tables for people to set their drinks on.
Use any outdoor spaces you may have. You can rent space heaters from most event rental places, they drop off and pick up, so that could not be more simple for you!
Candle light is key in outdoor spaces... So grab a few bags of tea lights from Ikea and set them around your whole yard.
Now for the reason you had a party in the first place... A chance to wear a fantastic outfit!
Here are a few of our key choices for this holiday party season.
O.K listen Lieberman, we get it, you are the queen of stylish simplicity.
