I played around and created a couple designs in the black, gold and white color scheme. I love when fireplaces are the focal point and seating doesn’t obstruct the view…

I like office desk chairs that aren’t typical desk chairs (that desk is beyond gorgeous). I found those Scandal inspired pencils on Effie’s Paper. Which set do you like?

It’s almost that time. If you are a last minute decorator, head to your nearest dollar store now. With tissue paper, carboard, metallic sharpies, craft paper, scissors and glue, you can jazz up for a party relatively quickly. For starters, you get some washi tape and tape them around basic glasses. If you need more stemware, seriously….a dollar store will come in handy. Sharpies are great for writing your own slogans on black balloons. Pipe cleaners are excellent to bend and make crowns or jazz up drink stirrers. Cut tissue paper in fringe style for backdrops or DIY tassled banners. Tissue paper can also be used to make confetti.

You know those faux silver plated dollar store platters? Buy some. Nobody cares if it’s not real silver. People are too busy trying to get tipsy. They are disposable so you don’t have to worry about cleaning them up. They even have faux disposable china and utensils that elevates the look versus your typical paper products.  Even if you mix and mingle with white serving platters, it will still flow. Notice how they used the square Dollar Tree candle holders to give that platter some height? Buy some of those. If you entertain even a little bit, those square candle holders come in handy for so many things without breaking the bank. Get some. Dollar Tree also has their Christmas stuff 50% off. (yeah I know, I didn’t realize they had sales). Get some of the gold and silver oranments and stars to float and scatter around. They are cheap so if they break, who cares! I love this backdrop. You van easily hang black foam core boards or craft paper behind a table. Use the sharpies to freehand different fonts…
