Chinese or Lunar New Year Party (9 photos)
Lunar or Chinese New Year is just around the corner (23rd January), so I thought you might like some party ideas?! Check out this stunning party styled by our very sweet and extremely talented blogging contributor, Christine from Pure Joy Events!
Christine styled this party for the winter issue of Bird's Party Magazine, and when she told me about the colors she wanted to use (red and tangerine), I just really went to town with the printables!
I love using vibrant colors and unique designs when creating party printables, and this exotic, oriental party theme allowed me to do just that. In bucket loads!
This printable collection has become one of my faves, as I spent aaages trying to get all the details right and searching for traditional Chinese and oriental saying and customs to incorporate in the designs. I also included some editable templates (buffet cards and invites) that you can add your own text to.
Christine and her fabulous team of party vendors really helped to pull the theme together with class and exotic beauty!! I mean just look at these intricate fondant toppers by Edible Details! Oh my! They emulate the printable designs to perfection! AWESOME to say the least!
Christine create some beautiful paper lanterns and paper cupcake stands using the scrapbook papers from the collection. She'll be sharing the tutorial for the lanterns here soon, and you can get the tutorial for the paper cupcake stands here.
The mouth-watering desserts from 6 Bittersweets are also pretty to look at, and beautifully photographed by Rebecca Watkins.
I LOVE the understated look and feel of this party, and the styling is so clean and chic but still very traditional and warm, don't you think? :)
