Remember that holiday party we had last year with Urbanic gift wrap? We told you it would end up a tradition! Sipping cocktails and wrapping gifts with the prettiest boxes, bows, and ribbons we can find is obvs on the top of our list of ideal December evenings. This time around, the lovely Fondly Forever Photography was there to document all the fun, starting with this awesome tissue paper decor from Shop Sweet Lulu. (I spy Oh Joy! for Target cups in the mix, too!)

Every party should have at least one nice, big DIY, don’t you think? It doesn’t have to be complicated, just something to show your guests how inspired you were by the event, and perhaps give ‘em a little something to talk about. This orange and olive wreath Type A Society dreamed up was the focal point of the holiday entertaining ideas shoot we posted yesterday, and it’s ideal for those who want to replace the traditional holiday color story with bright, unconventional details. Click through our DIY gallery for the two-step how-to and lots more photos by Josh Gruetzmacher:
