Summer Potluck, Tiki Lounge and More! How to Throw a Theme Party

The Theme: Gold and Silver Masquerade Party

The Stylist: Amy Oren of Blowout Party

The Look: “I wanted my masquerade party to shimmer so I used glitter and metallic wherever I could! The tablecloths and backdrop were a metallic gold fabric and I attached glittered circles of gold and silver to the backdrop. The platters were all gold or silver and even the desserts were sprinkled with edible glitter sprinkles! I used tall gold and silver candles for a luxe look.

To add decadence I used feather plumes in mosaic vases and embellished them with crystals and gold masks. Lots of candelabras were used to add height and drama. All the desserts were served in mini wine glasses of different shapes and sizes.”
