Holiday festivities are on the horizon! Many festivities will be taking place between now through New Year’s Eve. This is my favorite time of year to entertain, but it’s a rarity when I can have an impromptu soiree since I usually prefer to plan far ahead. It turns out that throwing an impromptu soiree is easier than it sounds!
This holiday season, Evite® invited me and 14 other influencers to throw a holiday party on the fly, on the cheap, and with our own twists. Combining old traditions with new ones keep the holiday season fresh and the spirit alive for us and our loved ones, whether it’s an ugly sock party in lieu of an ugly sweater party or even a “Wine & Wrap” party to make a girls’ night out of wrapping gifts.
Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of elegance and femininity. No film captures this svelte beauty’s flighty charm and impeccable style better than Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It has been 55 years since her impish grace stole hearts of many as the urban sophisticate Holly Golightly. I wanted a small get-together that was chic, fun, sophisticated, and unconventional for the holiday season. There was no better choice than Breakfast at Tiffany’s, especially since it’s a theme that is often thought of for weddings and birthdays – not the holiday season.
It’s effortlessly easy to go all out for a theme like this, but I wanted to keep it simple and sweet with chocolate cupcakes adorned with black frosting, faux diamond rings, and blue edible pearls; blue punch (a mixture of Blue Hawaiian Punch and lemonade), touches here and there to give it pizazz, and a viewing of the iconic film!
It also wasn’t complete without the legendary icon herself surrounded by a sea of faux diamonds and snow-covered trees, which added a wintry touch to the theme.
