Playful & Glamorous Stay Wild FOXY Flower Party

Playful & Glamorous Stay Wild FOXY Flower Party

YOU GUYS…. this party is so much fun! I had a very hard time narrowing the pictures down, because pretty much everything about it has me WILDLY inspired. ;)

Juliet Boydstun, master of creative party themes and co-founder of The COOP, crafted up a storm for an all out glamorous-meets-playful 2nd birthday party for her daughter Hazel, who you may remember from her groovy + glitzy “Purple Haze” First Birthday that we shared last year. This Wild Heart & FOXY Flower Party is inspired by Hazy’s playful spirit and one of my personal favorites “What does the foxy say?”, so if you need me I’ll be swimming in confetti and crepe paper flower dreams right about now… join me below!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Gorgeous DIY crepe paper flowers adorning everything from the backdrops to the party hats!
– Darling place settings with glitter dipped utensils, confetti party horns, & fox face masks
– Ravishing black and white stripe cake + watermelon bites shaped like foxes
– Vibrant tissue paper painted backdrops + “stay foxy” necklaces with fox figurines
– Amazing fox piñata + “Stay Wild” signs in red heart Ikea frames
– Lemonade & Mimosa Drink Station covered in confetti + “POP” spelled in gold letter balloons

Trend Alert: How to Host an App Themed Party!
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 — App Themed Parties. They are all the rage and gaining in popularity. Don’t be surprised like I was when my daughter requested a playdate themed after one of her favorite apps–Disney Creativity Studio 2!

App themed parties are tricky to decorate for as they usually don’t have a line of party goods to use, so you’ll have to get creative and really concentrate on the apps theme and scenery. Here I styled my daughter’s playdate with an art theme as Disney Creativity Studio 2 is an art-themed app where she can draw, paint, decorate and use many online tools to create fabulous online art pieces.

5 Steps to Hosting an App Themed Party

::
STEP 1: Host your party at a venue inspired by the app’s scenery or theme.

I chose to do the party at a local kids’ art studio in my city called Kidcreate Studio. They provide all the art supplies (paint, paper, aprons, easels, etc) and I don’t have to worry about any mess or cleanup in my house! LOVE THAT!

A Rustic Glam Wine Tasting Party at Home

I’m so excited to share this gorgeous, Rustic-Glam Wine Tasting Party with you today! And my personal affinity for a good vino only has a tiny something to do with it. ;)

This beautiful party was dreamed up by Silvia Lucena of Classy Detailed Events & Creations, and it’s absolutely filled to the brim with creativity, so get ready to drink it all in…

Silvia wanted to treat her party guests to the vibe of an authentic Italian winery, so she transformed her home into “Villa de Lucena” for the evening! I was instantly smitten with the wine-inspired floral centerpieces in particular…. they have such a beautiful mix of deep, rich reds accented by pops of bright purple, blue thistle, and greenery.

And then of course I also love that she incorporated our Rustic Wine & Cheese Party Collection from Hostess INK too! You’ll see some of the elements from this collection woven through the party pics below – from party invitations (which we customized for her event) to a flag banner & framed wine quotes.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Wine glasses adorned with ice-breaker questions on the base (great idea!)
– Wooden wine boxes used as buffet risers + wine cork keychain favors
– DIY rhinestone accents everywhere, from glass votives & mirror stands to the custom VINO letters
– Shimmery macarons & cake pops + hand-painted wine cookies with incredible detail

Coca Cola Cupcakes with Thirsty Game Day Toppers

Have you ever made Coca-Cola® cupcakes before? This was the first time for me, and I was VERY pleasantly surprised at how they turned out! Not that I didn’t expect them to be good, but they were seriously incredibly moist and kind of that perfect level of sweet. This is the kind of chocolate cake that would pair well with so many different frostings… but it’s even good by itself! And I’m a huge fan of frosting, so that’s a pretty bold statement coming from me.

This is also the 5th and final game day inspired recipe we’ll be sharing for the Coca-Cola “Home Bowl” campaign, and even though we’ve been super happy with how all of the recipes tasted, I kinda think we may have saved the best for last with this one. Of course, as a certifiable sweet tooth, I might be a little biased to the dessert recipe too! ;)

Free Printables – for Game Day Cupcakes (or Drink Stations)

I also designed some “Thirsty for a WIN” printable flag toppers, which you can download for free right here (+ check out the DIY info below). I loved the play on the type of cupcakes they actually are, paired with the football-watching-party occasion!
