In the past I have shied away from doing too many party features since as so many parties are featured over and over again at other blogs. However, I also realize there are a lot of parties that are incredibly special – even if they don’t have the glitz and glam of a professional photo shoot. There have been some adorable parties lately that I think should be getting more press. Not just because they’re gorgeous, but they’re also incredibly creative and incredibly special.
My first feature of the year is from Kristy at The Purple Pug. I know it’s a little late to be posting a Christmas party, but the details she used could be easily adapted to just about any time of year. What makes this party particularly special is how the entire party was inspired by a pinata that her son made. How much more personal can you get?! So, instead of some fancy inspiration board…this was what drove the details of her gathering:
Giving special attention to the pinata as the buffet backdrop, Kristy pulled from the colors to make a striking buffet using craft paper and pom poms.
The details were carried over to her dining table display using bakers twine, more craft poms and of course some extra sparkle details!
One of my favorite creative touches? Using placemats sideways! What a great way to get the look and feel of charger plates without the expense! (and who hasn’t been frustrated by how large placemats can overtake the table display?!)
