Parties Garnished with Gold
Whether it’s your first holiday party or an annual event, adding touches of gold to your get-together brings a fashionable romance to your decor.
To create a shimmering rustic charm, use gilded plates and party favors interspersed with natural elements, such as nuts, berries and natural greens.
In order to enhance the motif, add surprise hints throughout to give it a multi-dimensional tone. Sprigs of seasonal herbs in drinks, matching gold gift wrap and thematic jewelry will enchant all of your guests.
Using loose verdant bundles will complement glittering golden pieces and leave all feeling part of a magical winter wonderland. For more intricate details on ways to enhance your holiday get together, see our new Charlottesville Wine & Country Living magazine, expressing the elegant country lifestyle of Jefferson’s Virginia within a modern aesthetic.
