12 of Our Most Popular Party Ideas in 2018
English Tea Party
To celebrate the coming of her little one, English fashion journalist Louise Roe and her friends gathered for a traditional tea party with a modern twist. It featured a colorful spread of savory eats and sugary treats, garden-inspired florals, and vintage floral china cups for sipping Earl Gray tea—pinkies up, ladies!
Galentine's Day Brunch
Call up your besties for this pretty-in-pink fête filled with peonies, Insta-worthy balloon displays, and divine desserts. If the raspberry-cream layered cake and mini mousse parfaits didn't have you swooning, the blooming wall-art was sure to win you over. (It's also one of our most popular crafts this year!)
Cherry Blossom Baby Shower
Touched by one mom-to-be's mission to give back in her babe's honor, you also fell in love with her elegant celebration at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. From bouquets of blooms and butterfly sugar cookies to one sweet swing set (and darling photo app), it was an affair to remember.
Greenhouse-Inspired St. Patricks Day Party
Wall-to-wall greens of various varieties set the scene for this pot-o'-gold party. And it wouldn't be complete without a signature drink—part lime sherbet, part lime margarita—for good luck.
A “Peter Rabbit” Baby Shower
Inspired by the classic tales of Beatrix Potter's beloved bunny, this shower shone a light on all things spring from farm fresh bouquets 'a plenty to baby blue linens and carrot-shaped cookies for guests to decorate.
A Royal Wedding Lunch
When the Royal Wedding had us all lovestruck (and planning our next trip to London), you were determined to master the art of a formally set table. For wisdom, we turned to former White House florist Laura Dowling who lent her vision for a luncheon inspired by Meghan's favorite florals and regal place settings. (As for the result, we like to think that the Queen herself would approve.)
A Girls' Getaway in California
A Crochet and Rose Summer Soiree
Eli’s Skeleton Masquerade Birthday Party
Talk about a bash that's so cool, it's scary—and so scary, it's cool. That was this 6-year-old's celebration featuring batty hands-on crafts for kids, mysteriously bubbling beverages, ghoulish goody bags, and one ominous (but oh-so-delicious) feast.
A Haunted House of Horror Movies
Themed rooms inspired by classic thrillers like "Poltergeist" and "The Shining" were the center of this bone-chilling bash, just creepy enough to keep you glancing over your shoulder between bites of quail egg-topped baguette bites.
Modern Farmhouse Friendsgiving
Who doesn't love hosting a gathering of loved ones? And when it comes to setting the scene, you loved this beautiful balance of rustic and chic featuring smokey glassware, checkered linens, and pink pumpkins.
"The Nutcracker" Christmas Party
We were head over twirling toes for this event which brought the iconic Land of Sweets to life. And when party-planning ladies Royale Ziegler and Rachel Huntington teamed up to combine candy cane cocktails, one whimsical treat-filled tree, and piñatas inspired by the holiday ballet in one room—well, you simply need to see it to believe it.
