A Holiday Soiree

How to create a Gorgeous Holiday Tablescape with EASE!

 This post is sponsored by Posh Party Supplies. All opinions and ideas are my own.

The most wonderful time of year is upon us, the Holiday season!  
It's a magical time of year to gather and make special memories with family and friends!  But as many of us know, the hustle and bustle of the holidays can sometimes be a bit overwhelming as well.  This year I had the pleasure of partnering with Posh Party Supplies to show you just how easy and stress free, not to mention budget friendly it can be to create a gorgeous tablescape with disposable tableware! Yes, I repeat, disposable tableware.  

If you are looking for something disposable that's just as fabulous as your real china, then Posh Party Supplies has exactly what you need.  They have tons of beautiful collections to choose from and all of them can be mixed and matched to create a gorgeous custom look that your guests will go gaga over. 

They have everything from plates, chargers, cups, flatware, napkins.... the list goes on.  Their prices are super budget friendly and if you're worried about the environment, many items are even recyclable. Now,  for the best part.....your clean up time will be a snap which leaves more time for visiting and spending time with family and friends!

The Holiday tablescape I created was inspired by all the rich beautiful jewel tones of the season.  The basic palette consisted of red, green, navy and plum with accents of rose gold and pops of rhinestone sparkle.  


 
To create this look, I decided to set a low table and add gorgeous throw pillows for seating to not only give it a more cozy vibe but it allowed me to bring in lots of extra color and texture to the overall look.  


For the actual table, I first started with a beautiful red table runner, added some fresh greenery atop and sprinkled festive ornaments throughout the greenery.  I placed a gorgeous floral arrangement in the center and flanked it with simple white candlesticks.
To create this look is a lot simpler than you think.  The table runner is a piece of fabric from your local fabric store, allowing you to customize and match any theme.  The greenery can be cut from what you can find in your yard or nearby park. and finally, most local grocery stores have a lovely selection of florals to create an arrangement to match your event perfectly!


For the place settings, I first started with stunning copper cutout placemats, topped them with a rose gold trimmed dinner plate, followed by a royal blue trimmed appetizer plate,  placed a plum napkin wrapped with an elegant rhinestone napkin ring atop and finished the look with a simple leaf embellished with each guest's name.  Glamorous rose gold flatware flanked the place setting and a Manhattan green napkin with beautiful gold detail sat to the left.




 To the left sat a lovely little water glass and to the right a glamorous champagne flute and my absolute favorite, a Moscow mule mug!  Your guests won't believe they are all plastic!




It's ALL in the details when creating the perfect tablescape and thanks to Posh Party Supplies, entertaining couldn't be easier!  Pop on over to Posh Party Supplies and find out just how easy and convenient your holiday celebrations can be this year!

Skellycorn Halloween Soiree




Skellycorns, Scairies & Spiders . . . Oh My!
Join us for a frightfully good time!  All the little goblins and ghouls will  be dying to attend this spooktacular Halloween soiree!
It's full of mythical Skellycorns, magical Scairies and a sprinkling of spooky little Spiders.  Follow along to see how easy it is to  create your very own spooktacular Skellycorn celebration!


As always, I started by designing the invitation and party printables. The palette chosen was a ombre pastel iridescent vibe with the addition of the cutest little spider web and spider detail.

All your little guests will gasp with excitement as they enter into the mystical and eerie Skellycorn hollow.  Black, grey and iridescent streamers along with some spooky black cheesecloth hung at varying lengths to create a spooky backdrop. A giant balloon garland made up of black and grey balloons framed out the backdrop and a plethora of tombstones and eerie black pumpkins along with a few strategically placed "Scaries" (skeleton fairies) and spooky spiders completed the look.  "Skelly," the most adorable little Skellycorn with her pastel mane and tail greeted all the little ghosts and goblins as they joined the celebration!

 My little skeleton wanted to be sure she had the perfect costume to match "Skelly" perfectly! 


The table was set low to the ground and a collection of cozy black and grey fur pillows became the seating.  I love floor seating!  It's fun and easy and little guests love it! 


The party table decor was a sure winner with the kiddos.  It was the perfect mix of spooky and glam. The table was dressed first with a silver tablecloth, then topped by a black lace spider web table runner.  The centerpiece of the table was a purple and blue ombre cake with a creepy black drip topped with fun sprinkles and an irridescent cake topper that read, "Skellycorns, Scairies & Spiders . . . Oh My!"  The cake was set on a DIY weathered stone cake plate perfect for any Halloween gathering. The cake was flanked by two concrete vases filled with pastel and black roses and hydrangeas as well as some spooky black twigs.

 
Each place setting started with a black octagon shaped plate topped with a smaller ombre pastel plate with a darling iridescent edge. To complete the look, a simple black napkin was folded into an adorable bat and each guests name attached to the wing. A festive iridescent cup was placed to the right with a fun black and white straw tied with a glittery ribbon placed inside.  To the left was a fun ombre pastel napkin with clear glittery silverware criss-crossed on top and the silliest skeleton bendy straw for the win!






Finally, one of my favorite elements of a party, . . . the favor!  This favor was too cute.  Tucked neatly inside a clear favor box, among a pile of shiny black shred, was the sweetest little mythical skellycorn. Finish the look with a lovely black ribbon and favor tag. (Download FREE favor tag printable HERE)




A definite must for most parties in my book are activities!  They keep the guests entertained and keep the party flowing.
One of the activities for this party is the easiest DIY Skellycorn Ring Toss game. This along with cake and yummy treats kept the little goblins and ghouls entertained for hours.
