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:
If you like mixing things up whenever you play hostess, you’ll love what Carrie of Type A Society had in mind for today’s shoot: Her goal was to show how to create a holiday party setup without relying on the traditional color palettes, and instead showcase something equally inviting, but unexpected. Thanks to photog Josh Gruetzmacher for capturing all the deets for us below…
Type A Society crafted this orange + olive wreath as a Mediterranean-inspired décor piece. Don’t the olive greens look amaze? Carrie says it’s perf for holiday use because it dries nicely and lasts the whole season.
Check back tomorrow for the DIY!
