Glam Girls Night {Vendor Challenge}

I’m so excited to share this latest entry in our Vendor Challenge.  This party design comes from Modern Mindy who is super talented, and created a Glam Girls Night full of girly touches.  I like that she added black to our colors of pink and orange, and made it more sophisticated.  Check out all the loveliness and details by Mindy…

“When given the challenge of orange & pink, I quickly decided on a 60’s glam Girls Night Out theme.  I was extremely fortunate to gather a super talented team of vendors.  The florist is Beth of Garden Gate Floral, who I have worked with on several projects including my wedding.  She loves interpreting her clients style to make her creations a reflection of them.  Along with her floral design business, she also has a gift shop & restaurant plus another shop across the street that sells clothing & accessories.  She was invaluable to the project, giving me free range to her jewelery & more! 

To incorporate & second table, I decided on appetizers rather than a dessert table.  Renee, owner of Taste by Renee, created a gorgeous display of appetizers that taste every bit as good as they look!  She caters everything from large wedding to small luncheons.  She also stepped in as one of the “models”, what a trooper!  Photography is by my good friend, Jim Carlson, of CarlsonPhotography.  He’s worked in commercial photography for years & is pure perfection.  His shots are clean, crisp, bold.   He did an amazing job capturing my vision.  My bestie, Jackie Martin, is super talented & helped me out a ton with ideas & contributed heavily to the props.  The Kate Spade stemware is hers & it was so perfect for the table.   Abby of FlairDesignery Artwork, created the menu & appetizer cards.  I have to give her a big shout out, because she did great work in a very short amount of time!”

“I acted as the event designer, collaborating with each vendor, & creating “the look”.  I knew I wanted a fresh & sophisticated location, so I decided  on a pool side scene at my parents home. 

I knew I wanted a black table with a bold patterned runner.  I made the runner by purchasing 3 yards of fabric from JoAnne Fabric.  I then folded it to the size that I wanted & then made one cut at the length I preferred.  I then  took hot pink ribbon & used double stick tape to secure it around the perimeter of the fabric from the underside.   Now, I probably used 2 yards & just folded it to get a narrow strip.  This way I can take off the ribbon & unfold it for a totally different use. 

I used the extra yard or so for the runner on the appetizer table.  I really wanted the two tables to tie together visually, so using the same runner on both achieved this.  To change it up a little, I used a sequined wrap that Jackie had on hand, & ran it down the center.  Another quick, easy, & inexpensive project where the votive holders.  To make them fit my theme, I just used sticky ribbon found at Hallmark, & wrapped it around the top. 

For party favors, we bought black glittery scrapbook paper & Jackie used a die cut at her local library for the purses.  A little rhinestone embellishment & hot pink gloss & orange polish made for a cute favor. 

The finishing touch to the table was all the jewelery.  So fun & so simple to take stretch bracelets & rings & wrap them around the napkins for a bit of bling!  Then placing more in the
orange vase made for an awesome display!  The orange square arrangement was one of my favorite items.  Simple pink carnations were the perfect backdrop for the beads & jewelry.”

Thank you Mindy for all the gorgeous ideas!

I love that she added sassy models to the display.  Can’t you just imagine being in this setting with your own girl friends?!   I also love how elegant but still fun everything is.  You can use these ideas for a Bachelorette Party, Bridal Shower, or Milestone Birthday too!
