Well Winter is upon us here in sunny Queensland!
We are super lucky to live in a state where it doesn’t get too frosty, ( even though I still don’t cope with anything below 20 degrees!) so there is no stopping our party vibe.
I absolutely love seeing all the new trends and decoration styles when I attend parties, so I was super excited to chat to the amazing Roxanne at Lovely Occasions about what is on trend this Winter Season and share it with you!
Lovely Occasions is your go to shop for pretty, stylish, party decor. They have a beautiful range and they support Aussie designers and party makers!
Here is what you can expect to see, or aim to achieve when throwing a party from this Winter.
Glamping & Movie Nights
For kids this winter it’s going to be all about glamping indoors with movies, popcorn and sleepovers. Think hot chocolate and marshmallows, a popcorn treat bar, cute teepees and plenty of fairy lights.
( Ummm…. Hello Can I join in? Sounds awesome!!)
GROWN UP STYLE:
Boho style picnics
Thats right! Boho ain’t going anywhere people!!!!
Boho picnics continue to be the biggest trend in grown up celebrations from baby showers, bridal showers, engagements and birthdays.
New bright colours, themes and styles are emerging to take over from the original bohemian style and lucky for us Queensland’s winter sun is perfect for an outdoor picnic.
Beautiful balloon garlands are still the hottest party decor trend at the moment with new colour tones in darker chrome metallics taking over from bright pops of pink. And DIY garlands kits available from trendy online party stores making it easier to create this look yourself! ( See below)
And with supermarkets going plastic bag free there has also been a big shift away from plastic party plates and plastic cutlery, with people opting for more eco friendly, sustainable and recyclable/biodegradable wooden cutlery and beautifully designed paper plates
This winter you will see plenty of naked drip cakes topped with full size donuts, cookies and other amazing treats! Layered number tarts (now with thin sponge layers instead of biscuit) aren’t going anywhere and donut walls are still super popular. Party guests will also continue to enjoy personalised wrapped chocolates and customised stamped cookies as party favours.
So there you have it my friends! The inside goss from the expert herself Roxanne.
Soak up the Inso and get ready to party in style this winter!
