Modern White Party Inspiration Board

Modern White Party Inspiration Board

I coordinated a “Delano Hotel-Inspired” White Holiday Party this past Friday night and can’t wait to share pics soon! Above is a peek at the inspiration board {click here view it larger}. This was a holiday party at a Manhattan Beach residence, and we ended up going a little more modern minimalist with the florals than above, so the end result was a little different (and much easier to recreate!), but still had very much the same vibe.

The main decor elements were contemporary “lamps” used as cocktail table centerpieces (and created from super tall pillar holders & lamp shades from IKEA, “pull cords” made from beaded crystal strands, and battery operated LED lights), giant monstera leaves & other tropical greenery, white orchids, white lacquer pillar holders from Z Gallerie, white coral & sand, silver disco ball ornaments (for a festive party feel) and TONS of white candles & twinkle lights.

All of the existing patio and living room furniture was also re-covered with white sheets white faux fur, and signature drinks included White Cosmos and Miami Mojitos (of course!).

This would also be such a fun theme for contemporary weddings or New Years Eve parties

More details coming soon, but I want to give a quick thank you/shout out to Carissa at JL Designs for doing a fabulous job with the florals (and being so sweet & helpful!), Gina at Gina Lee Photo for driving all the way from San Bernadino (in the rain & LA traffic!) to photograph the details so that we can share them with you here soon, Whitnie Burke for the delicious cupcakes that starred in the white dessert bar, and the entire team at The Party Goddess for doing such an amazing job with the food and drinks. This was such a fun team to work with – thanks again to all of you!

We just hosted a “Soiree en Blanc” to celebrate my friends’ engagement! It was rustic/chic, held under the towering oak trees in New Orleans. Here are pictures, along with a few tips and ideas: http://hammer-and-heels.com/2014/04/30/dominique-and-lees-soiree-en-blanc/
