Home Confetti: December 2016

Tuesday, December 27, 2016


I hope you each had a wonderful holiday weekend. To keep the magic going, here is a beautiful gem of a party to give you lots of inspiration in the New Year. The inspiration was taken from one of a girl's favorite places - her jewelry box!  The party decor uses brilliant shades of emerald, aquamarine, pearl and more, along with playful decor. This is such a fun theme and can be used for a bridal shower, bachelorette, Bat Mitzvah or birthday. Big thanks to Connecticut's Carla Ten Eyck Photography for sharing the photos with us.

Every year it's a bit of a creative challenge on what we're going to do for our holiday card. (Not doing one is NOT an option! ha ha) With photo booths being such a party craze this past year, this seemed like the idea to go with. One of my daughters wasn't too happy that she was cut out in most of the photos, but I tried to explain to her that's just part of the photo booth fun, and besides I post enough photos of her on Facebook, people know what she looks like!

I hope your holidays are filled with laughter and fun.

I am always in awe when I see blogger tours of their elegant homes beautifully decorated for the holidays. How do they get it all done? So I really appreciate little projects like this that are easy but really add a nice festive touch to a living room or entrance. I found this pretty project via Craftberry Bush, but it was originally posted on eHow here. If you give it a try, let me know!

While I was going through these photos I felt like I could actually smell the fresh scent of greenery. It immediately relaxed me! Get together with a few girlfriends to relax while putting together a plush green Christmas wreath. It'll be a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays. With Christmas just over a week away it's the perfect time so your wreath is nice and fresh. This get-together was hosted by Janelle, wedding industry florist expert, in her home studio (nice room, right?!) who taught participants how to make their own wreaths using boughs and pretty adornments. (Having them use rubber gloves is a smart tip!) Thanks to Calgary's GingerSnap Photography for taking and sharing the festive photos.

No doubt that the movie Frozen was thoroughly enjoyed by adults as much as kids. So it doesn't surprise me that Kirkbrides wedding planners took inspiration from the beloved fairytale for this styled shoot. Their inspiration came specifically from the Nordic culture that was worked into Frozen's setting with the teal, purple, white and blue color palette. The icy crystal branches overhead are magical. One very easy decor idea to take away from this styled shoot is the tall glass cylinders filled with colored water. I've actually used this idea for a spa party. It's budget friendly and makes a statement. The fuchsia chair bands add a nice luxurious touch and complements the hanging floral accents. Big thanks to photographer Cleveland photographer, Lauren Gabrielle, for taking and sharing the inspirational shoot with us.
