how to throw a fabulous party

I love parties. And party food. And, obviously, I love the company. But what I really love? The little touches that make a soiree special. I’m the girl who geeks out over party playlists and handmade invitations and vintage milk glass.

Today, two of my friends posted about recent (fabulous!) bashes they’ve hosted, and I have to send you ladies their way so you can get inspired by their creativity!

Justine, my lovely friend from college who’s now a talented editor in NYC, shared about her Kate Spade-themed bash for a girls’ night in.

Isn’t she the cutest? Today, she spilled all the secrets for throwing your own colorful, classy affair. She includes it all: Recipes, decor, party games, and free printables. Go get you some!

She made that cake! Impressive, no? It’s called a Naked Funfetti Layer cake — check out her recipe here.

And if you’re throwing a baby shower soon, you seriously need take cues from Erin, my lovely and uber-talented friend from Des Moines. She left the corporate world to stay home with her two sweet little ones and I love following her cute little family’s adventures. (Her little ones are named Ruby + Sterling. Adorable, right?).

She shared her tricks for hosting a whimsical baby shower on a budget. Her style is a lovely mix of modern lines and vintage touches.  (She’s roadtripping to the Influence Conference with me and I could not be more excited! Along with Madison and Nicole. Yay, friends!)

It’s so important to carve out girl time. And while sometimes it’s fun to have a backyard barbecue, every once in a while you just need to throw on heels and buy some flowers. In fact, I feel like I need to gather some ladies and throw a little shindig now. Who’s in?

  1. What a small world! I see your friend Erin at our library storytime. Next week I’ll have to introduce myself! And so fun that you’re going to the Influence Conference! I’d love to go next year when I don’t have a newborn!
