Trend Alert: Spooky Monster High Parties
Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Monster High Parties. Have you heard of Monster High? If not, I’m sure your little girls know them all too well. They are the hot new trend right now for kids & tweens with collections of dolls, dress up items, party goods, cartoon series and movies. The latest DVD release is a “Clawsome Double Feature” Fright On! and Escape from Skull Shores which my daughter, Riley, watches almost every day, so it wasn’t hard to guess that she would choose a Monster High Party as the theme for our end of the summer party!

Crafty & Enchanting Floral Fox Birthday Party

For a fresh new take on your typical princess party, Alicia Johnson & Betsey Hodges of Happy Wish Company styled this Crafty & Enchanting Floral Fox Birthday Party filled with bright colors, fresh and paper blooms & woodsy touches. When planning a party, I like to find inspiration from one central theme, so I love that the whole look of this party came together from the (adorable) invitation! Crafty foxes + crafty DIYS = a creative masterpiece!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY tissue paper flower dessert table backdrop & matching tissue tassel garlands
– Burlap pennant banners & rustic tree bark vases + a cherry blossom orchard venue
– Gold glitter star topped cupcakes, party flags & cupcake wraps + a gold glitter birthday cake candle

Classic & Chic Black, White & Gold 30th Birthday

There is not a whole lot in party decor that I love more than a neutral color palette with pops of gold. Tali Bar-Netzer of Revelry Street hit the nail on the head with this Classic & Chic Black, White & Gold 30th Birthday. Since it was her ‘golden birthday,’ this sparkling look is an even better fit! I am absolutely loving the swanky outdoor venue, with strings of twinkly lights and a beautiful city view, there’s really not a better way to ring in a new decade :).

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– White tablescape with a black & white runner + gold painted antlers & gold candle centerpieces
– Gold speckled cake with ’3o’ sparkler candles + gold mylar ’30′ balloons & a gold heart shaped piñata
– Black & white dessert table with striped cookies, gold dusted macarons & ‘midnight munchies’
– Gold rimmed drinks with rock candy stirrers & gold star topped ‘Pot of Gold’ cocktails
– Greenery wall photo booth + a popcorn bar, gold flake lollipops & mini champagne bottle party favors

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Brightly colored honeycombs & pinwheels cluster with pineapple poms over the fireplace
– Amazingly detailed flamingo & pineapple cookies + pipe cleaner flamingo topped toothpicks
– DIY potato stamped pineapple tablecloth + lush pineapple floral centerpieces
