A modern rose gold Christmas party
I love hosting my girlfriends over for a Christmas celebration and blush is currently my favourite trending colour (I’ve even decorated my house in blush tones). Hence the theme of this party!
Elements featured in this event include the balloon garland, mimosa bar cart, dessert buffet, and my favourite feature; the blushing Christmas tree.
There were also some DIY hacks. The centrepiece was created using artificial Christmas greenery from Bed Bath N’ Table and large and mini Kmart baubles assembled then tied together using wire.
The Christmas bonbons were a new DIY I wanted to do this year as I had the stunning reindeer headpieces made and didn’t want anyone replacing them with the paper crowns from the Christmas crackers – this way I could also add what I wanted to the bonbons (lots of treats).
Our cake pop stand was created from a sleigh we picked up from Kmart that we spray painted gold. We cut to size and added some styrofoam to the inside to stand the cake pops in, then covered up using gold sweets.
Inspiration for the colour scheme for this event came from my house. We recently moved and I was finally able to decorate from scratch and I wanted to go with blush tones, and as a result I wanted our Christmas to match. Rose gold is really trending right now and I’ve always loved that colour so wanted to incorporate that too. The end result was really warm and welcoming and the pinks made it really fun. A totally different vibe to last years cool white and silver.
Our dessert buffet featured the adorable blush reindeer cake by Lisa from Cakes2Celebrate with the rose gold antlers custom made by Emily from XOXO Designs. Nikki from Niknaks Sweetest Treats provided me with Christmas desserts to match my theme including cake pops, Christmas cookies, eclairs and truffles. The gingerbread house was from Woolworths (pre-decorated) and I whipped up the mini pavlova nests using ready-made nests, pink whipped cream and added a raspberry and mint leaf to garnish.
Our bubbly cart featured our custom made Bubbly sign from XOXO Designs, with rose gold script to match our theme. We also got the gorgeous rose gold antler stirrers for our drinks. Champagne was pre-poured in coupe glasses and garnished with lime, raspberry and mint for our guests on arrival.
Our dinnerware featured gold cutlery and gold charger plates with pink plates. Kmart also released brand new pink and gold drink-ware which was featured on this table setting.
I know every Christmas party features those paper crowns that you pop out of Christmas crackers, but I wanted something more magical for this event so I asked Liz from Schooza Handmade to craft some adult-sized Reindeer crowns (in rose gold of course).
My guests loved these as a keepsake instead of the paper crowns that usually wind up in the bin on the way out.
