Good morning, everyone!
I've been dying to share this beautiful look book that we recently put together for Bookalokal with super talented entrepreneurs and bloggers! Thanks so much to Spicy Candy DC for organizing us all, Katya for the fab jewelry, Julien for the pictures, and Jess for the always-delicious food!
It was so much fun to do the styling for this event. Dinner for the ladies, fall colors, beautiful details and obviously, champagne cocktails! I wish it could happen every week :) Here are some of my tips and sources for your next lady event. Make sure to invite me if you organize one!
Pamper your guests! Make easy placeholders or name tags for each of them. It welcomes your friends with a special treat. And remember, nothing beats your handwriting :) Seasonal flowers and colorful napkins add the finishing touch.
It's still warmish out there, so take advantage of your outdoors! Place candles everywhere. They are the perfect way to add a bit of flavor and ambiance to your party. Plus, don't they look oh-so romantic? :) The more the better.
Use what you have! Mix and match placemats and glasses. It adds personality to your set up and tells a bit more about your life experiences. Vintage pieces are always perfect!
- Flowers: Trader Joes.
- Napkins & Tablecloths: Homegoods.
- Placemats: IKEA and Maison du Monde.
- Vases & candle holders: IKEA and vintage finds.
- Champagne coupes: Vintage.
- Cocktail straws: Amazon.
Hope you liked the details! and hope to inspire you to create your own get-together. Let me know if you organize your own! I would love to see your own set up ideas.
Happy weekend! xx.
