Create a Photobooth

Every great party needs a Photo Booth/selfie station. So make a backdrop for those amazing photos to happen!

You can keep it simple like with some gold balloons or grab some gold metallic fringe to tape to the walls. (You can see the one I linked in this birthday party post.)

While you’re at it, don’t forget some party props! A selfie stick, some top hats and printable party signs will make it that much more fun.

Get Festive With Your Decor

Dress up the glass! Why should you be the only one dressed to the nines? A cute bowtie and little black stickers is all you need for this fun DIY.

To make the bowties stick, try some adhesive like Zots. I always keep these around for craft projects.

There is no such thing as too much sparkle. So dazzle your eyes and your tastebuds with sparkly donuts. You’ll need edible glitter to pull of this project.

Keep Dinner Simple

{Eat Yourself Skinny}

For parties like this, it’s best to serve tiny treats. That way, guests can enjoy the show without having to worry about a sit-down dinner situation.

Finger foods like meatballs, or a charcuterie board are things people can eat without utensils and something you won’t have to worry about spilling.

Bring on the Bubbles

You all know I love me some Champagne…and for a night like this you should bring it on!
