Hello friends! Although my Spring Break is over, I feel like there's always a good time to talk about parties.
In mid-February, I received a blog post request from Paperless Post, asking me to describe how I would celebrate a milestone in my life--whether it be a birthday, my graduation, etc. And let me just say, I hardly ever have parties. But the thing is, I actually love hosting parties! The last party I hosted (if I remember correctly) was a 2014-2015 NYE party. We all dressed in formal attire, listened to classical music, and surrounded ourselves with glistening string lights. I'm not sure yet if I'll have a legitimate graduation party, but simply seeing my family will be wonderful as is.
However, if I was to imagine a "perfect", very festive party, there would be three necessities present (that pun was unintentional), besides the amazing company.
1. Colorful Décor
What's a party without the fun? Besides the entertainment and the guests, I believe décor plays a huge role in a really fun party. Specifically, bright banners, buntings, and bulbs brighten the mood of your event. A bright environment gives life to any party.
2. Pretty Things
When it comes to party favors, treats, gifts, and invitations; fun packaging and designs once again boost the spirits of both the host and the guests. Bonus: if you give gifts in pretty boxes like these, the recipient can keep them and use them for other things in the future. For me, I keep some of my craft supplies in these. And I've had these boxes for a solid couple of years now (thanks Angie!).
3. Your Look (duh!)
It's a party! Why not get all festive? Bold lips and voluminous hair are the perfect touches to basically any outfit imaginable. Get out there and do your thing!
Thank you all so much for reading! What do you think are necessary additions to parties? Thank you to Katie from Paperless Post for requesting this post!
