My favorite thing about the holiday season is holiday parties! I’m a sucker for a good holiday party. I think it really stems from too many old movies growing up. So I have this really fantastic idea of holiday parties that they include champagne, records, big skirts, witty banter, and maybe Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.
Not that I’ve imagined this scenario a thousand times or anything. I just watched Desk Set this weekend and it may have one of my favorite Christmas party scenes of all time. I’ve also been watching The Holiday a lot lately and just relate a little too well to Rose so I’ve had to give it up and it’s all Doris Day from here on out.
I have a few parties coming up and I’ve had some friends ask for suggestions on fun party supplies. Since I love a good party, it wasn’t that hard to find tons of great stuff. My favorite cups ever are from Sucre Shop, which also happens to be based in Saint Louis. I can’t imagine who wouldn’t want these cups at their party.
If you want amazing invitations to your party, check out these from Cheree Berry Paper, also a Saint Louis company. I spent like a solid two hours on this site going through all of the amazing invitations and notes. I am obsessed with every single thing. I have never felt more motivated to host a party or to start writing letters so I can get some notes. Not only do they make the best invitations, they have these pickup line napkins, these cocktail napkins, and this adorable reindeer game.
Some of my favorite party picks from this roundup include these monogrammed glasses and these Kate Spade wine stops, so adorable! And no holiday bar is complete without the perfect bar cart like this one that also happens to be a serious steal.
What are some of your favorite holiday party traditions you’re looking forward to?
