How did you ring in the new year for 2020? We kept it simple this year … Lauren had a few other families over for dinner, drinks, and an early ball drop, and my family did the same at a friend’s house. But first, we got in one last event set up of the year! A roaring 20’s New Year’s event at Braemar Country Club

For this event, our focus was on decor and as it was New Year’s we made sure to pull out all of the stops! We set up a prop station next to their photo booth for 20’s inspired fedoras, feathered tiaras, and lots of pearls. Each guest was encouraged to dress up for this fun themed event, and as they were able to keep these hats throughout the night definitely looked the part.

Each table was dressed up as well … In black or gold sequins! We just couldn’t help ourselves!

Centerpieces were created with a gold charger as each base, a glass vase full of ostrich feathers, more pearls, party horns, and lots of candle light. We love how these napkins were folded providing us the perfect place to leave each guest a noisemaker to blow when the clock struck twelve!

Cocktail tables were the perfect place for sequin runners and “midnight kisses” …

… and the buffet was dressed up as well! We added more tall feather arrangements, and don’t you just love a good gold lamè fabric?

We know each guest had a grand old time celebrating New Year’s at Braemar, and that our decor was a nice pairing to all that they had planned … A speakeasy bar, casino games, DJ, dancing, delicious catered cuisine, and more. This last photo was our favorite detail. Beautifully displayed champagne coups that no doubt were filled and enjoyed at midnight. Love it!

I love the holidays! It’s a time for family and friends to get together, for exchanging of gifts, for decorating your home in the most festive ways, for hopefully getting a little time off to relax before the new year, and of course … for company parties! I can’t think of a better way for employers to show their staff that they appreciate them than to host a party (small or big) with tasty food and drinks and time to all be together outside of work. This past weekend, we planned an at-home company party that really encompassed all of these things. Check out all of the details!

Festive decorations? We kept it simple but super festive incorporating live eucalyptus garland created by Mulberry Row in all areas of the home (where the party took place starting with this entry console), small strands of twinkle lights, and lit candles for ambiance. 

Delicious food and drinks? You can’t have a party without it! We set up their formal dining room to house a station of really yummy food and an adorable farmhouse bar rented from Signature Party Rentals.

Here’s another look at that gorgeous garland atop a gray linen table runner. Love this simplicity!

Many guests frequented this bar and were excited to try the signature Paloma cocktail and Lemon Drop shots our bartender whipped up. I personally love the details best … Pinecones and sprigs of eucalyptus, cute cocktail napkins, and black bar glasses to match the party’s decor. 

The living room was another space we used for this particular party. It was a great place for guests to mingle and to watch a special show put on by mentalist Riccardo Berdini later in the night. 

I love the way this garland looked wrapped around the already existing accessories in our host’s home. It really fit right in and gave a festive holiday feel. 

We incorporated candles and pinecones in all trays and decorative dishes too. Oh what fun!

Company swag? We had that too! Each employee (and their significant other) got to take home a special tote bag with the company’s logo filled with swag … T-shirts, hoodies, and eco friendly water bottles created by Invite Amy, and softer than soft Rachel Miriam throw blankets embroidered with the company logo as well. 

Did I mention delicious food? The cuisine at this party was seriously next level starting with tray passed appetizers including Jon and Vinny’s signature mozzarella sticks and so many other yummy things catered by Carmelized Productions.

A “Jon and Vinny’s” station was set up with more signature dishes including their gem lettuce with parmesan and bread crumb salad, pastas (The fusilli was insane!), delicious garlic bread …

… and those meatballs though! We can’t wait to work with this amazing catering company again!

For dessert? Tray passed strawberry cheesecake squares and chocolate fudge brownies! Is your mouth watering yet? This hamburger is not made of meat but rather ice cream! An action station was set up to give guests a taste of this delicious dessert as well!

Guests didn’t seem to want to wander back into this back bar area of the house, but its beautiful garland detail will not go to waste! I hear another party is happening here again this coming weekend! 

We couldn’t be happier with how this company party came together and hope that each employee feels as appreciated as we do by these dream clients! Keep checking back … We have so much more fun holiday decor, gift wrap, and events to share in the next coming weeks! Happy Holidays from Side by Side Design!

Wow! I can’t believe this past weekend was my “sprinkle” … It all has been happening so fast and I am trying to be in the moment as much as possible! Let’s be honest though, being pregnant is not really all that fun, and I am happy most days to be super distracted. With that said, I truly cannot say enough about how perfectly planned this event was. Planning for the planner is no easy feat, and my sister tribe took on the challenge and way over exceeded my expectations! With so much going on, I only had one request. I wanted to keep it as small as possible (just a few friends, my sisters, and the moms / grandma) to have a relaxed time and not make a big deal as this is my second shower. Here are all the details from my point of view:

Joie, Phil, and I arrived just as my guests were getting to Lauren’s house. I love that we have some photos of just us three before we add our fourth!

I mean, does it get any cuter than this? What a great idea to set up the event in Lauren’s newly landscaped front yard! It is such a perfect clean backdrop, and I am so grateful that the weather cooperated.

Lauren and I are not the only ones in the family who do events for a living … Our soon to be sister in law’s sister, Lindsey, is responsible for this perfect professionally done balloon garland. So amazing! 

Other details that caught my eye were these neon pink plastic servingware (LOVE!) and vintage vases full of flowers in every shade of pink! Chairs and linens were provided by our favorite party vendor, Signature Party Rentals, of course!

Printed seating cards told all of my guests where to sit …

… and these sprinkle take home gifts were such a hit!

I especially love my pink personalized Rachel Miriam bag that was waiting for me at my seat!

This adorable teepee that comes complete with a felt campfire, s’mores, and adorable star shaped twinkle lights is a favorite of ours from Heartcraft Girl! I was so excited to get my own and bring it home for my girls to play in! It made for the cutest display at the party when all of our guests put their gifts inside. Here is a link and 20% off to purchase your own!

Lauren used her adorable covered entry area as a place to house all of the food. The salads and sandwiches from Lemonade were so yummy!

So were all of the treats!

This cake was made by Ashlee of cream+sugar (aka my sister in law) and “sprinkled with love”! 

I love LOVE these Daks to the 4th custom cookies she made too …

… and honestly can’t get over the fact that this was Ashlee’s first attempt at making macaroons! So much talent! 

Thank you Lauren (and Scott) for hosting this really special day for me and my family! You are the best sister and business partner a girl can ask for … but from now on, I get to do all the major party planning!

I know Lauren’s girls are excited to add another female cousin into their girl tribe!

I especially want to thank this group of girls (Maya, Lauren, Ashlee, Rebecca, and Lindsey who was taking the photo) for all of their hard work and creativity! My sisters truly are the best!!!
