Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and it always has been. Family is the most important part of my life, and there’s nothing I love more than spending time with them. The holiday is right around the corner and we want to know how you celebrate. What are your favorite traditions? Do you celebrate with family or friends? Are you hosting a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If so, I’ve gathering a few of my favorite serving pieces to make your Thankgiving Day fancy and fabulous. I love these pieces and I hope your guests will too! We have a few, upcoming posts for the holiday so we hope you stay tuned, and celebrate with us. As always Beauties, I’m thankful for your love and support. Wishing you a safe and happy holiday. xx
Happy New Year, Beauties! It’s officially 2015 and I hope you celebrated in style with the ones you love. Here at Sleepless in Sequins, we threw a New Year’s Eve bash at our home. It was a spontaneous party, that we decided upon just two days before NYE! I’ll admit that I’m a bit of a perfectionist. I wanted a themed party with a color scheme, an abundance of flowers, crystal cocktail glasses, the perfect hors d’ouvres, plated on lovely serving pieces and…well, you get the point. I want everything perfect. Always. I spend hours on Pinterest (check out my inspiration boards here) at 2am searching for party planning inspiration. This is the exact reason that entertaining people always overwhelmed me. I love being creative, but the entire production of a party always seemed to be too much for me to handle. If you know me personally, you know that I am by no means a domestic diva. My cooking skills aren’t quite up to par. I’m not kidding…I can burn toast. Therefore, I leave the culinary creations up to the superstar chef of the house, and Sleepless in Sequins photog, Grant. On a side note, I’m great at chopping vegetables and I can make a mean salad.
It’s almost time to ring in the New Year, Beauties! If you are hosting a New Year’s bash for friends or loved ones, you may be on a last minute shopping spree for the perfect entertaining pieces. Inspired by a theme of metallics, we’ve created an New Year’s Eve party guide to help you with your party planning. Wishing you a fabulous party, my hostesses. Clink your glass of bubbly and toast to 2015! xo
This past weekend, we hosted a fall themed Blogger Birthday Bash for two of our dearest fashionistas, Cara Kovacs of The Stylephile and Leslie Marin of Bleecker and Spring. Unfortunately we missed both girls’ birthdays, so we planned a belated birthday celebration. Our other lovely friends who celebrated were Kathleen Osborne of Le Vintage Dress, Aishly Tromp of Style L4b, and Olivia Ribera of Sweets by Olivia.
I chose a fall theme for the party using shades of plum and metallic gold for the decor. When you are planning a party, it’s important to choose a color scheme and theme for your event. I always start with the look of the room. It helps me to envision the end product, before I even begin. I searched Pinterest for creative, fall themed table ideas, and floral centerpieces to create a story board, which helped me plan the party. You check out my party inspiration boards here.
