Everything You Need To Throw The Perfect Party

When it comes to parties, you have to go all out. Throwing a get-together can be a bit overwhelming if you don’t know where to start, so we’ve decided to gather up some tips to share with all of you!

Certain colors and items can work for any kind of party, anytime of the year–whether it’s for a friend, loved one, sibling, or child. Gold goes great with literally anything and is the perfect base to start off with when planning color-themes for the party. For inspiration, we picked a color scheme of gold and navy, because we like more neutral colors that fit any gender. We’ve collected a bunch of ideas below for you to steal and use at your own party.

Bar Cart. If this is an adult party, your biggest concern is going to be a stocked bar. Bar carts are perfect for setting out liquor and glasses for guests to serve themselves.

Cake, Duh. What is a party without cake? Sip the boxed mixes and go all out. Make a cake that will “wow” your friends like this gorgeous bright blue velvet cake from Add A Pinch.

Gorgeous Tassel Garland. Believe it or not, this is the most eye-catching piece of the room (besides the cake), because it actually draws everything together. You’ll want to shop Gen Woo’s shop to explore her amazing, personalized garlands.

Finger Foods + Dessert Tables. It’s always a great idea to have little nibbles on hand for enjoying before, during, and after the party. Dessert tables are so much fun and give guests unlimited options to choose from.

Table Setting. A whimsical tables a must. Match the table with your color themes, even down to the drinks and food.

Little Touches. Personalized napkins are such a fun touch, inexpensive, and will end up being the talk of the party.

Fresh Flowers. Placed around the room, flowers are always a great idea, bringing life and elegance to the setting.

Glitter + Gold. Instead of cliche candles, top the cake with these amazingly cool “party letters” from Urban Outfitters.

Matching Desserts. Get creative with various desserts by decorating them with colors of the party theme.

Fancy Drinks. Rim drinks with edible gold sugar and choose a drink that’s bright and fitting for the decor of the room.

Festive Additions. Non-drinkers can get in on the fun using navy-striped straws that you place inside of a gold-glitter-dipped mason jar.

Unique Munches. As for snacks, leave out grab-and-go nibbling options like a beautiful cheese and fruit plate.

Make It Sparkle. Lastly, if you want to go out with a bang, serve ice cream with lit sparklers while you sing the birthday song to the guest of honor!
