When it comes to entertaining, Caroline of POSH PR sure knows a thing or two. As an incredible wedding and event planner, she knows just how to incorporate all of the best chic little details into every party! Today, we’re thrilled to have Caroline with us sharing details from the Kate Spade inspired party she recently threw for her talented POSH PR team. Here’s what Caroline has to say:
I am so excited to share with you the girly details from our party! This party honored some of the most important girls in my life, my POSH PR dolls! It was so nice to treat them to a night out. The color pink is an icon for POSH PR, however, I wanted to make a bold statement and incorporate a chic black and white stripe pattern to really make the pink pop.
Our table was set with gorgeous black sequin linen and beautiful blooms in tall gold vases. It was so fun to include these pops of gold to the table setting. The gold crowns were filled to the brim with pink candy and macarons, of course! The gold flatware really made a statement on the black sequin, and the black and white stripe charger plates were a perfect fit for our theme. I decided to keep the china neutral with white and gold accents in order to focus on the black and white stripe candy cups that lined the table. I always like to add an element of surprise to my tables. I was so excited when I found black and white stripe party noisemakers with pink accents – it was the perfect touch to add to the tablescape.
At POSH PR we believe that champagne is always the answer. With that being said, our specialty cocktail was a blush champagne! Each flute sat on a Pink Lips coaster and I added the black and white straws to the champagne flutes to add a little extra touch. I also showcased a unique way to use our Pink Lips Gift Tags – – as a place card! To stay consistent with our chic theme, I also included our Pink Lips cocktail napkins next to our appetizers. I cannot wait to tell you about how yummy they were!
We had the most incredible food to pair with our specialty champagne cocktail! I love items that are easy and fun to eat. The Pecan Cranberry Spread was so tasty paired with Town House® Original Crackers and Town House® Pretzel Thins. It was such a unique flavor and I loved including the frozen orange juice concentrate. The girls loved having the option of using both crackers to try each appetizer. It was a different experience with each bite. I decided to place this spread in one of our gold crowns to really make a statement! I loved how gorgeous the spread looked with the crackers, so I decided to place this as a centerpiece on the buffet adorned with champagne and fashion books!
The Mediterranean Hummus Dip was the second appetizer I made for the girls and I decided to pair this with Town House® Pita Crackers Sea Salt and Town House® Flatbread Crisps. I absolutely love hummus, but this was truly one of the best dips I have ever had. My favorite pairing was with the Flatbread Crisps. However, the girls fell in love with the Pita Crackers! I placed this dip in the breakfast nook near the champagne so everyone could see! I included a gorgeous gold tray with soft beautiful blooms as an extra chic touch.
We had such an incredible time laughing and chatting, enjoying our champagne, and indulging in delicious food!
