Christmas without parties is like spaghetti without noodles. This time of year is clearly an excuse to gather your friends and family and celebrate the night away. From brunches to secret santa parties, it’s a time to stay up late and eat too much cheese. I wanted to gather a few friends and do something a little different and out of the “Christmas box” this year. With the help of Papyrus, I decided to throw a sushi party, complete with a sushi chef. Our good friend, Joel, is a true sushi master, so I requested his skills and he made us a feast to remember. It honestly was a blast!
I still wanted to create a strong holiday ambiance, so I chose to use classic Christmas colors, mixed with gold and white. Papyrus has a new holiday entertaining line that is full of color and style. They have items ranging from plates and napkins to banners and party picks. They also have everything you would except Papyrus to have, including greeting cards and gift bags. I used the florals and plaid pattern and paired it with gold cutlery and simple branch name cards. I also had Wildflower Florals and Events create a few centerpiece bouquets. They turned out stunning and filled the space with color and texture.
For the dessert, I picked up the Berry Chantille Cake from Whole Foods. BEST.CAKE.EVER!
Each of my guests left with a bottle of wine in these adorable gift bags and a personalized Papyrus card.
One quick tip for adding texture and color to your space is to use garland everywhere and anywhere. I even draped some over my pendant for some added hoiday loveliness.
These cute little party picks are perfect for a cheese platter. And speaking of cheese, every party can use a classic cheese tray, complete with chili jam and rice crackers.
Such a fun night! I think we should make sushi nights a tradition in the Grove household.
