This Very Merry Pink + Gold Holiday Party has the Perfect Creative Twist

Holiday parties are most likely filling up your social calendar this month but here’s an idea you might not have thought of before. Instead of your standard cookie exchange, why not throw a Creative Exchange party? The ladies of Lemiga Events and Amanda Jewel Floral + Design invited their talented friends over for a party that included creative projects to share. It’s genius and the sparkling pink and gold decor certainly pretty to look at. For more captured by Tulle & Grace, head to the vault.

Collaboration makes my heart sing! And when fabulous women get together, we make magic! Sort of like a Cookie Exchange party where everyone brings cookies to a holiday party, I planned a Holiday Creative Exchange Party were my talented friends brought a creative project to share.

We learned how to make a holiday arrangement, winter sangria, what makes a good cheese board, perfect holiday bows, and cookie decorating. Then we sipped cocktails and enjoyed lunch together.

Peek Inside a Home that’s Decking the Halls in the Most Glamorous of Ways

Amanda Gluck of The Fashionable Hostess truly lives up to her blog moniker. Each and every holiday, she pulls out all the stops for a home that literally sparkles with the season’s best. Peek inside her Miami abode decked out in Holiday glam. Even her office is getting in on the action. From bar cart to backyard, this home tour has the merry, merry vibes. See even more shot by Simply Lively here.

This winter I couldn’t wait to add some Holiday cheer to my home, starting right at the entry. I just love my new spiral topiaries from Frontgate and my festive wreaths from Grandin Road.

Then in my foyer you are greeted with a winter white theme; a gorgeous 7′ tall faux white tree from King of Christmas, which I decorated in all silver and white ornaments.

 In my family room, I created a Holiday Bar Cart to greet guests. A bar cart is such an easy way to transform a party from average to festive. Welcome guests with a bar cart right at your entrance filled with a display of welcome drinks, or pull up your bar cart alongside your couch for an added side table display of nutcrackers and mini pine trees.

 By placing this one in my family room, I had a fab new space to display an array of gold and glittery Holiday pieces. Shimmery nutcrackers, gold-rimmed glassware and limited edition Chandon made it perfectly elegant for the Holiday.

In my dining room I created a beautiful table runner of green garlands and candles, see the DIY in this Fashionable Hostess post.

Of course I never leave any space unattended to, so even in the powder room I added fresh guest linens, linen with beautiful ornament embroidery by Sferra and red roses in a crystal vase.

 My guest bedroom was such a fun space to add holiday touches {and a great place to decorate since its filled with guests all Holiday season long!}. I replaced one of the mirrors on the wall and hung a wreath wright above the bed. 

Then I opted for Boll & Branch’s plaid bedding for that cozy winter feel. I love their bedding because it’s organic. I am always sure to have a few extra throw blankets as well!

 Last but not least I added the most gorgeous frosted garlands from Frontgate to our patio. Miami winters are actually the best time to be outside with the cool breeze and no mosquitos so this space will be the most popular location for my holiday parties! Wishing you all a happy holiday season!
