You might remember Michelle Schobert from the colorful, Tinkerbell-inspired party that she created for her daughter’s birthday. Well, she’s back with a gorgeous, adult-friendly soirée this time! Read on for the details, as told by Michelle…
“Here is the first official event planned by the newly established Six Chicks Designs. With Interior Architecture degrees under their belts and an eye for design, two chicks set out to find something they would love and that would give them an outlet for their endless creativity. Inspired by their daughters, Cassidy & Courtney (Michelle’s daughters) and Madison and Emma (Jennifer’s daughters) the designers and best friends launched Six Chicks Designs, a collaborative design company specializing in interior, event and graphic design.
“Dinner Among Friends” was an intimate dinner party for six dear friends featuring a black and white theme accented with bits of sparkle. The idea of the party was inspired by a fabulous set of black and white dishes handed down from a family member.
Utilizing digital scrapbooking materials, the graphic was created for the invitations, place cards and menus. They were simply printed out on cardstock with a home printer.
We also printed elegant saying to help set the mood and placed them in small rhinestone picture frames. Black velvet ribbon and silver wrapping paper was wrapped around a clear flower vase, topped off with an additional festive saying and a few more rhinestones for a little glitz.
The meal began with floral shaped French bread (baked in fluted Pampered Chef bread tubes) and Italian spread. The main entrée consisted of grilled chicken, whole fresh green beans and roasted red potatoes.
The highlight of the evening was definitely the dessert bar…
Double chocolate fudge cupcakes, Hershey bar cupcakes, white and milk chocolate covered cheesecake pops, “rollo” turtles from HWTM and chocolate martini’s were just a few of the tasty treats on the bar.
The tall cupcake/cake stands were a fantastic find, half off at a local craft supply store (Hobby Lobby). The stands were also dressed up with black velvet ribbon, printed tags and rhinestones.
Favors included small silver tins filled with Hershey kisses and small bags of glazed sugar cookies tied with black and white polka dot ribbon.”
Thanks to Michelle and all of the Six Chicks for sharing these ideas. There’s so much great DIY inspiration here!
