Ever since we got engaged on NYE, it has been a tradition to celebrate the new year with friends. And since our rehearsal dinner, which was also on NYE, we have thrown the most glamorous parties to celebrate!
In honor of my favorite holiday coming up, I am sharing some snippets from last year’s festivities. The theme: James Bond! I always come up with the theme years in advance, and I was so excited for this one. (yes, I already have what I am doing for 2021- and it’s epic!) I always like to do a glam take on the holiday, but with a fun theme to work off of. And everyone always gets so in to it, which I love!
For this mission, I asked guest to “dress to kill”- with high slit dresses, velvet, black tuxs, and pops of red! I incorporated blackjack chips and dice to play off the Casino Royale movie. And you can’t forget the gold bars from Goldfinger.
For the signature cocktail, I did my own take on the Vespar- doing more of lemon drop vodka martini instead of the dry gin martini from the movie. And my favorite detail- the gun-shaped ice cubes that fit perfectly in the martini glasses. I also made matching Jell-O shots with popular martini flavors.
I was super proud of the 2020 sign I created using the signature Bond font. It was perfect for photos!
Overall, I loved this party so much. And even though the decor, food, and theme was on point, it was the best of friends that made it the amazing party that it was.
Stay tuned for this year’s theme, which is even more epic!!
