Hosted a cocktail party last week to celebrate the Born on Fifth x Antonio Melani holiday launch at Dillards! Perhaps you saw a peek into the party on Instagram, but as promised I am sharing the full recap below to inspire any holiday party planning you’re dreaming up this season.
All good cocktail parties begin with a pretty invite.
Sip & Shop
Creatively I was inspired by Father of the Bride—the pieces are perfect for party season and the idea of having a party at home is so special. I wanted it to feel like you walked into the movie, which in my opinion is the benchmark for beautiful at-home events! I shared my vision with Brianne from Party Bound who I tapped to help with rentals and lighting. I sent a photo of the outdoor scene at the end of Father of the Bride and she knew just what to do!
The Cocktail Party
The lighting and drapes were the loveliest detail and the perfect backdrop as Atlanta Jazz Trio played into the night.
I gave specific color and bow design direction to Henri’s Bakery and the petit flours were precious.
Decor & Details
The weather was perfect and the clothes looked like a dream next to the gorgeous blush linens Brianne and her team sourced. She’s a great resource and is so knowledgeable about the event space (and as someone who personally has thrown many events but does not love the logistical aspects having good partner is key).
As mentioned, the Belle bow is beautiful as tabletop decor for so many occasions.
Baked by Ave color-matched her specialty, heart cakes, for our dessert table/shoe display.
Ruby Bond candy was also a crowd favorite. Look at the tiny bows! They are the best and can do custom for large scale events or gifting.
