A Sophisticated Birthday Affair in Blush and Gold

What is it that sets a fashionista apart? We believe it’s her ability to blend feminine with fashion-forward. So it’s those 2 qualities that we chose to focus on as key areas to styling a gathering that’s just so ‘her’!

Feminine touches

1. Color – What could be more girly than the color pink? But to keep the look from becoming too sugary sweet, we suggest you choose a subtle and sophisticated blush tone paired with gold. You can see the ideal hues in the elegant invitation (photo #5), gorgeous macarons (#4), and pink champagne flutes (#3) that we found.

2. Florals – You mustn’t miss out on the natural charm of flowers! Whether as understated as a single bloom atop a fabulous cake (#1) or a spray of pink buds gracing each guest’s place setting (#6). Or else as flamboyant as centerpieces spilling over with roses, peonies, and hydrangea (#7).

3. Sweets – Even a figure-conscious lady loves a sweet indulgence once in a while. So be sure to oblige her and her party guests with extra-special treats for the occasion, like fancy parfaits (#8) or sorbets, gourmet chocolates, those ever-elegant macarons, and of course that show-stopping cake!

Fashion-forward elements

1. Ornate accents – Just as with striking accessories like necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, don’t be afraid of intricate, even over-the-top trimmings in the party decor. For instance, have ornate borders in the paper goods like the invitations, place cards, and favor tags. Serve appetizers and sweets on fancy gold frames (#4 again). And just look at that gold filigree adorning the cake!

2. Actual fashion references – Make no secret about the celebrant’s penchant for posh by incorporating decorative nods to the fashion world. An example we love is the use of gold mirror stands for the table numbers (photo #2)! Other ideas could be: having guests walk in on an improvised ’catwalk,’ naming the appetizers and drinks after top designers, or dressing up each chair with a strand of pearls, a perky little headpiece, or a blush-and-gold printed scarf.

3. Favors that make fab fun – Think of items that no fashionista should be without, and give those as party favors (in blush and gold, of course)! Perhaps chic little makeup bags each holding a mini mirror, a powder compact, and lip gloss. Or pampering products like hand lotion, lip balm, and eye cream. Or for the hair, a tube of styling mousse, a fancy hair clip, and a gold comb.

So thanks to some amazing wedding inspiration, we were able to spin off these tips we’ve shared above. Now, you can throw your always-in-style friend a birthday bash that will have her kicking up her stilettos! Wish we could be there to see!
