As much as I love dreaming up the perfect party theme and spending hours crafting all the little details…the holiday season is way too busy for me to DIY everything! I was so excited when my friends at Minted gave me the scoop on their new line of party decor suites full of all the decorative details to make holiday soirées, birthdays and other special occasions unforgettable. Created by indie designers, the collections include customizable (!!) banners, signs, confetti, centerpieces, stickers, cupcake toppers and more… all printed on super luxe paper. I flipped when I laid eyes on the fresh, sophisticated selections covering such a wide array of themes and events, and I’m super excited to unveil the first party that we’ve styled around one of them! I chose the Glitter Bling collection for a girly and glam holiday cocktail party full of sweet treats and bubbly cocktails. Click through to see how we styled it, and be sure to hop over to Minted.com to peruse their full line of party decor. If you see something you love, now’s the time to scoop it up – today just happens to be Cyber Monday, and Minted’s offering free shipping, 15% off holiday cards (code: CYBER2012) + a whopping 25% off everything else (code: CYBER25)!
This holiday party is a bit deeper and more dramatic than the norm… no Rudolph noses or candy canes at this soirée! Think bold graphic elements like chevron and stripes mixed with moody black and glam pops of gold.
