Throwing a Holiday Party: Girls Night

I wanted to give the traditional party-planning post a twist this year, by planning my dream holiday party for girls only.  Sometimes it’s nice to just kick back and hang out with your girlfriends, and the holidays are a perfect excuse to bring your fabulous friends together.  Plus, dreaming up a holiday party with a more feminine spin happens to be a whole lot of fun.  I went with a color palette as the main holiday theme: metallics, pink and red.  I would probably serve finger foods and a few very yummy indulgences; cue the chocolate-covered strawberries.

By the way, a fun and festive alternative to champagne for that holiday party?  Sauza® Sparkling Margaritas; because what girl doesn’t love a very pink (a.k.a., the wild berry flavor), very sparkly margarita?  I would also probably serve the pink margaritas over ice and topped with a few raspberries, similar to the signature Sauza® drink I dreamed up, here.

  1. Kate Spade Pop Fizz Clink Holiday Cards: Because every great party starts with a gorgeous invitation.
  2. Furbish Studio Python Tray: I collect trays the way some people collect coins or souvenir shot glasses.  I can’t get enough.  And this python tray is sophisticated and sleek … perfect for that girls night in.
  3. Sauza® Sparkling Margaritas:  I love the idea of serving a signature pink sparkling cocktail for a girls night in holiday party.
  4. Rifle Paper Gift Tags:  I love the idea of a gift exchange or secret santa at a BFF girls night.
  5. C. Wonder Gold Ikat Dessert Plates: The perfect excuse to scoop up these adorable gold ikat plates.
  6. Glitter Serving Set:  It’s not a proper girls night without some glitter utensils.
  7. Gold Trim Agate Coasters:  My blogger buddy, Jenn recently got me a set of these gold agate coasters and I cannot wait to throw my own girly bash to serve drinks (and squeal about my coasters!)
  8. Hearts: This sequin heart hair clip/brooch would make the perfect party favor.
  9. Pottery Barn Glitter Alphabet Ornaments:  It might even be cute to buy a glitter letter for each guest so that she can take her ornament home after the party to hang in her own home.
  10. Serena & Lily Gold Glass Ornaments:  I just love these.
  11. Anthropologie Cheers Cocktail Napkins:  The perfect party napkins.

For a relaxed twist to the girls night in, it might be fun to add a mandatory pajamas-only dress code, and include favorite holiday movies to the night’s events.  Pink drinks, appetizers, desserts, and Love Actually (followed by The Holiday) … sounds like a perfect night.
