Come Party With Me: My Birthday Party - The Look

Just because I'm hosting my party at Wish Bar, doesn't mean I won't have any fabulous decorations. When hosting a party at a restaurant, bar, or venue that already has its own decor, ask the owners what extras you can bring in to enhance and change the atmosphere. In most cases they will be flexible and allow you to use the tablecloths, candles, vases, etc. of your choice.

Shades of purples, golds, and yellows are the colors of my 26th birthday party, so I'll incorporate these into the already existing look of the lounge bar. Gold silk rose petals will be strewn around the dance floor and on the coffee tables. Burgundy satin fabric will carpet the walkway in front of the bar and cover the aforementioned coffee tables inside. The snacks will be served in small scalloped gold bowls.

The centerpieces will be large wine glass shaped vases filled with shiny rhinestones and purple bouquets. Hundreds of small candles will be placed in yellow glass votives to create an attractive, glowing light. Yellow ribbon will line banquets and the bar. Instead of the usual, everyday napkins, I'll supply the bar with monogramed purple napkins that have my name and date on them. Got another great idea on how I should decorate the bar for my party??? Please share it with me!

For your bar decoration maybe you could use martini glasses and either fill them with some glass beads or fill them with a little water and float a candle or some rose petals.

That sounds beautiful. I'm really into the monogramed m&m thing right now. You could order purple, gold, and yellow ones, put your name on some and your birthdate on the others...When your guests leave, have plastic bags so that they may take whatever they want as a gift.

If you are giving out favors, I ordered these chocolates for a friend's party and they were delish, and come with the ribbon colors of your choice...the letter lollipop in your first initial would be great, and you can put some around the venue in your gold bowls. http://www.chocolatevault.com/alphabet.htm

FYI - Most places that do parties (have banquet rooms, etc.) on a regular basis have a rule about not sprinkling confetti (little metallic shaped things suburban housewives enjoy putting on tablecloths at parties) all over the places because it's next to impossible to clean up. I'd stay away from doing it at places that will let you, too. Nothing says "The Caterers WILL spit in your food" better than the promise of having to stay late to clean up after your "fun" decorations.
