LET'S CELEBRATE : A big birthday

Whether you’re planning a chic gathering for a fortieth  birthday, a surprise thirtieth get-together or dinner for an insta-worthy big five-0, we’ve got the top tips for styling and planning a party to remember. All imagery and more inspiration can be found on our 'Let's Party' Pinterest board.

Send real invitations

In a world full of Facebook events and group texts, there’s something romantic about receiving an old fashioned invitation. They’re so simple to create and are a great way to give a special occasion some sparkle. Our favourites are from Papier, where you can choose from hundreds of designs and personalise all the details.

Dressed up drinks

A well-stocked bar is a must if you’re hosting a party at home, but a few little details can make a such a difference, making your guests feel extra special (not to mention how gorgeous they will look in everyone’s photos!). Preparing garnishes for drinks is the quickest way to add a little luxury. Our favourites are lavender sprigs to stand in tumblers; frozen berries skewered onto olive picks to pop into champagne flutes and edible flowers and herbs frozen inside ice cubes. They certainly look fancy considering they take barely any time or skill - bonus!!

Grazing tables

Introduced to the idea of luxe grazing by the incredible Grape and Fig (check out their Insta – prepare to drool) its now officially the only way to feed your guests. Think royal banquet meets slow-motion M&S advert. Grouping foods together with their delicious partnering suggestions and adorning the table with foliage and flowers, there really is nothing more decadent.



Flower power

If flower arranging isn’t your string suit, or your house isn’t quite the place for huge bouquets and the oh-so-done flower wall, then small arrangements around the house are a simple and effective way to dress the space. Using a mixture of old jars, glasses and bottles, with just 2 or 3 stems inside each, is a fool proof way to add a bit of colour and occasion to the room.
