This beautiful black and gold party was created by Penny Rumming, our newest addition to our design team. Penny shares a common love for all things pink and sparkling, so she is definitely a perfect fit! Penny is also the owner of Posh Pedicure Lounge and has designed some of the most spectacular birthday parties for her little girl.
Penny’s inspiration for her New Years Eve dinner party came from our Holiday Glitter Party Kit of black and gold party supplies.
Here is what Penny had to say:
I wanted to wrap up the Holiday Season with something a little different then my traditional decor of silver and plum. I wanted to challenge myself with a new holiday color theme, and be on trend with gold! Since my table and curtains are black I knew the accents of glittering gold would work perfectly.
I dressed the table with a black tablecloth and glittery black place mats to set the stage. I then taped some gold glitter tapeacross the tablecloth to resemble a wrapped gift. The fact that this was tape was amazing as there was no shifting and it was so much easier than trying to use ribbon. This then inspired me to cut the glitter tape in half lengthwise and jazz up my plain glasses. After all that, I still had about a yard left so I wrapped the tape around a vase to use as my centrepiece.
The paper napkin rings with bedazzled jewels were just so cute and easy. They added that touch of glam wrapped around the black napkins. For me it’s all about the little details, and those details are the ones that get noticed most by my guests.
After adding all that gold, I thought it would be fun to bring in some chevron print through mini paper bags and paper straws. I put chocolate thin mints in the little bags and sealed them with gold vinyl stickers. I then took the extra bags, folded them in half lengthwise and trimmed off the ends to make little name place cards!
I also added a glittery element to my black damask curtains by hanging some gold glitter garlands. To contrast, I hung black tissue pom poms from the center chandelier. Finally, I added just a sprinkle of gold glitter around the table.
Tomorrow my guests and I will say goodbye to 2013 and ring in the new year with lots of glitter and gold!
Happy New Year!
