This summer while I was away at the beach in beautiful Malibu, I wanted to host a party for my amazing friends who live here on the west coast. It’s not often that I have a window of opportunity to gather my girlfriends together to celebrate the glorious and dynamic women they are. The idea was to bring together a group of encouraging, inspiring and positive women, some who have never met, to connect and celebrate each other. All of the women are goddess-worthy; they are all women who support, champion, and mentor others in this journey of life. What a gift to have these women in my life!
In need of a theme, I searched the web for inspiration and discovered these amazing flower crowns and from there my vision took shape.
This would be a Goddess party with a Boho theme. How fitting! Now that I had my theme, all the decadent details came to life, from the invitations to the fabrics to the flowers. “If you dream it, you can create it, all you need is a vision!”
With the party only two weeks away, time would not allow for the beautiful handwritten calligraphy invitations I am known to send, so I kept it simple and used Paperless Post to create the design and send the invites. Paperless Post offers invitations for all occasions, and you can choose one of their many designs or design your own. The invitations were sent by email, and it made it easy for the guests to rsvp.
In keeping with the theme, guests were asked to wear white, Boho, chic.
Table linens can add a bit of pizzazz to spice up your table, and for this bohemian chic theme, I found a bright bohemian tablecloth in shades or orange and yellow. This was the statement piece for the tablescape. I added Moroccan and mercury glass votives that gleamed with a magical glow of the bright oranges and gold tones of the tablecloth. White flowers of orchids, tulips, dahlias, lisianthus and roses arranged in glass containers were the center of attention on this table.
A menu of fresh healthy selections included appetizers, grilled vegetables, filet and tasty salads served family style. And no theme party would be complete without a signature cocktail.
Over the next two weeks I will highlight all the decadent details of the goddess gathering in my blogs. Check back tomorrow to learn how how to make a flower crown.
