{Video Tutorial} Sparkle & Shine Dinner Party + Free Printables!

Hi, there! As part of the Sparkle & Shine Dinner Party I recently styled for Pier 1, we also shot a DIY video that covers some of the ideas and projects from the party! You’ll find helpful tips on how to create the Hot Cocoa Station, “Metallic Flower” Centerpiece, and Desserts Display in the 4 minute video – plus get a peek at how it all came together in the end…. hope you like! ;)

{Video Tutorial} Sparkle & Shine Dinner Party + Free Printables!

Also – as I mentioned in the video, you can download all of the paper printables that I designed for this party in the original overview. But to make things EXTRA easy for you, you can also download them right here.

The zip file of the printables includes:
– 8.5×11 Paper Patterns (4 styles)
– 2″ Party Circles (4 styles)
– 5×7 Party Signs (2 styles)
– 4×6 Party Signs (2 styles)
– Party Flags (2 styles)
– Food Flags (3 styles)
– Large Double-sided Centerpiece Flag (set up on 11×17 paper)
– Place Cards (2 styles)
– Hot Cocoa Bar Signs (2 styles – sized at 4×6 and 5×7)
– Flavored Marshmallow Tent Cards (pre-filled: Pepperming, Chocolate, & Vanilla)

I really hope you’re able to use some of these tips and printables for your own festivities this holiday season!

Cheers,
Jenn :)

P.S. There are 10 high resolution PDFs included in the folder, which is a little over 10M and may take a couple minutes to download. Once the file is full downloaded, you will need to unzip it to access the PDFs. We recommended that everything is printed on premium or photo quality paper except for the 2″ Party Circles – which should be printed on a more sturdy cardstock paper.

What fun ideas! I especially love the creative way to use bowls and candle holders into cake towers! I have now found my new favorite way to showcase desserts! And I loved the wire balls on the wooden dowels…such a great way to be able to get your centerpiece down days in advance of your party, too!

Awesome idea, Jenn! I LOVE the Hot Cocoa station and the tip to pour the rum into a pretty decanter. I love the one you picked! The floral arrangement idea is so clever… I have seen some things at Pier 1 that I think I can do this with for a Hanukkah party theme, too! Super-fun video! I’m sharing on Twitter & FB now!

I love all of this! Especially the centerpiece idea! Also, I have never in my life thought about using a candlestick and platter together to create a food stand! That is fantastic and i will be using all of the ideas at my neighborhood block party in two weeks! Thanks!

Christy Smith SAYS:

I was unable to download the printables. It is directing me to a unknown site stating the page is unknown. Jenn or any one I was really hoping to use this for my Holiday Party Dec. 25 2013. Please if anyone knows how I can get these printables, please share. You can email it to me at christysmith72@gmail.com It would mean a great deal to me.

Hi Christy – Sorry you are having trouble with the link! I just tested it and they downloaded okay for me, so I’m just going to paste the full link right here so you can hopefully try copy/pasting it directly into your browser and see if that helps: http://cdn1-blog.hwtm.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/HWTM_MetallicDinnerParty.zip

If it still doesn’t work, let me know and we can email them – but the file is pretty big so I don’t want to clog up your inbox if it’s not necessary :)
