Holiday Party Snapshots

It’s a funny thing about the business I’m in: the holidays literally start in May, and by the time August rolls around, I might be found cooking a turkey for a Thanksgiving photo shoot or setting the table for Christmas feast inspiration. So when December actually hits and the rest of the country is entering the frenzy of holiday plans and shopping for gifts, I’m just ready to slow down a bit and celebrate the season, for real. This year for our CamilleStyles.com holiday party, I decided to invite everyone who’s played a significant role in making 2012 such an amazing year for our company, from contributors to designers to photographers & videographers to chefs. It was my turn to treat all of them to great food and pretty flowers. It was almost overwhelming to get everyone in one room, and made me feel incredibly thankful for the talented people I get to work with all the time. Definitely one of my favorite nights of the entire year. I’m so glad that She-n-He Photography was there to capture the details – I didn’t have a moment to pull out my camera even once! Keep reading for my favorite moments…

Camille Styles Holiday Party

Adam and I put the finishing touches on our signature party punch made with gin, fresh citrus fruit, framboise, lemon juice, orgeat syrup and champagne. We made a ton…and the punch bowl was empty 2 hours into the party!

      Aren’t they adorable? I’m keeping them as my new go-to menu cards! Since I attached kraft paper to the front with double-side tape, it makes them reusable!

    This party looked so fun, I am swooning for my invite. My favorite were the bubbly favors so perfect for the season. I agree Camille I am a fan of beverage/edible favors as well. You know they will be used. A girl loves a glass or bottle of champs. Thanks for sharing.

      Agreed – and it can be SO hard to think of favors that guests will actually use and enjoy! Thanks Lotoya!

    How did you get the Grand Courtâge bubbly? I wanted to use your discount and place an order, but the company will not ship to Texas :(.

    This post is perfect timing- I am preparing for my annual holiday party (in my much smaller NYC apartment!) as I type this! I always get such inspiration from your site, but it is really great to see a “real” party in action. A lovely (and fun) looking party like this is definitely something to aspire to!

    Frozen cream puffs are the best party trick! The party looks amazing – I love your green dress, Camille! Happy Holidays!
