Pretty California Christmas inspiration

Categories   Party + Entertaining Ideas

The lovely Leila invited us and some other blog friends to a chic California Christmas dinner a couple weeks ago, and look what a cute little party it was! Such pretty colors, don’t you think? We love California, we do.

That most cutest pup is Carissa’s dog “Bossy”. Oh Bossy! We love you. Come be our 100LC mascot, pls.

Succulent trees (dreamed up by Cortnie of Canvas and Canopy, and made by her and Carissa) and sugar cookie ornaments and desserts from Cupcakes Couture.

Giant tillandsias are always amazing. So graceful and weird at the same time, don’t you think? Love them with the bits of coral and huge red flowers.

Don’t you want to plan a little holiday party yourself now??

You can see more photos on Green Wedding ShoesGrey Likes Weddings, and Hostess with the Mostess too!

(And P.S., there are a few sources to buy giant Tillandsias and other air plants in the resources section of our site! You can also buy some of the items from this party here)

This makes me wish I had a December wedding! Ah... I didn't want a december wedding because I think they can get overwhelming, and honestly a little tacky sometimes... but this is perfect! The succulent and flower "trees"- mini deserts... table setting. Oh well... I will plan on using these ideas for holiday parties
