Black White & Gold Party

Had another clothing swap party at my house, and went with a black/white/gold theme – on a budget. Lots of inspiration from this birthday set-up and this new year’s eve party! Here are the deets!

gold animal figurines
1. These animal figurines are from Michael’s, for about $2 each. They each got a coat of metallic gold nail polish.
2. For the tissue tassel garland I used black, cream, metallic gold, and antique gold. This is my favorite tutorial.
3. The polka dot garland was cut from gold scrapbook paper and strung with a needle and thread.
4. Polka dot napkins were on sale at Party City. Woot!
5. The gold flatware is from West Elm and are the opposite of thrifty and everything this blog stands for. BUT, they’re kind of worth it. I mean, c’mon.
6. The tableware is from HomeGoods and the thrift store, and totally affordable.
7. The tablecloth? It’s the backdrop from THIS party!!
8. The “shopping bags” for the clothing swap were personalized with each girl’s first initial. I used large kraft bags and cut the letters out of velvet paper to add texture. On the other side are polka dots made from the extra paper from the letters and polka dot garland. The handles got the tassel treatment!
9. A tiny detail that is much better up close is edible gold glitter. The tops of the cupcakes were dusted with this instead of frosting.
10. Lastly, have Moscato and gold snacks!
