Sparkle & Shine Metallic Dinner Party


Described Below:  DRINK & DESSERT DISPLAYS + ACCENT DECOR



*****

DRINK & DESSERT HIGHLIGHTS:



– Glitzy Bronze Luster Crackle champagne glasses from Pier 1 embellished with DIY "sparkler" drink stirrers fashioned from bamboo skewers, sparkly pons, and metallic gold pipe cleaners.

– Printable "Raise A Glass" and Hot Cocoa Bar signs were displayed in a sparkly Bronze Mosaic and Silver Mosaic frames

– Pier 1's Metallic Bronze Mugs pre-filled with hot cocoa mix & displayed up next to a tray of flavored marshmallows (peppermint, chocolate, and vanilla). The marshmallows were embellished with printable party flags to make it easy for guests to pick up and stir in their favorite flavor!

– DIY "dessert stands" created from Pier 1 dishes and pillar candle holders. Use glue dots to temporarily secure decorative plates and bowls to pillar candle holders for a quick & easy way to create custom servers that perfectly coordinate with your party! The DIY dessert stands pictured here feature a Metallic Bronze Dinner Plate, Brown & Gold Mosaic Charger, Gold Ribbed Candlesticks, Mercury Glass Candlestick Holders, and some of our everyday white & glass bowls.

– Mini gourmet desserts embellished with {easy!} DIY dessert toppers made from toothpicks & miniature foam disco balls and metallic poms. Both of these items are readily available online or at craft stores during the holiday season.

– Mini Chocolate Cupcakes embellished with DIY yarn pom sparkler picks. We used tinsel infused yarn in 3 different colors to create mini yarn poms, then glued them to toothpicks for a quick and easy way to glam up store bought desserts. Each cupcake was displayed on a 2" circle of glittered paper to add an extra touch of sparkle!

DECOR HIGHLIGHTS:

– DIY gold & silver tissue tassel garlands strung across each side table.
These added such festive vibe to the party! A few individual tissue tassels also hung from the top of the hutch to create a mini chandelier & help tie all of the display tables together.

– Sparkly paper circle garlands created from silver, gold, and copper glitter paper.
We used a 2" circular craft punch to cut out the circles, then used glue dots to attach them to thin silver twine. One of these garlands was strung across the hutch, while others hung vertically and used to embellish the table backdrops.

– DIY  "flowers" and "dandelions" fashioned from pretty decorative knobs and wire ball ornaments!
The decorative knobs were attached to sturdy floral wire with green floral tape, and the wire ornaments were hot glued to wooden dowels wrapped in tinsel infused yarn. We used Pier 1's Flower Glass Knobs, Metal Rose Knobs, Metal Flower Knobs, and Crazy Wire Decor Balls. These fun, creative "flowers" can live on long after your party as part of your regular home decor!

– Cylinder vases embellished with printable patterned paper and tinsel ribbon and used as display stands and vases for the DIY "flowers".

– A Metallic Gold Swirls pillow added an extra dose of warmth to the Hot Cocoa Bar station and a Petite Gold Burst wall accent added a festive touch to the hutch.
