5 In Parties

New Year’s Eve Wedding

As you know, I don’t sit still long, so this week, I’m based in Maryland, getting our New Year’s Eve elopement party all styled and ready for 50 guests. Since I couldn’t do much beforehand besides planning and dreaming, we’re literally putting this party all together in a matter of days. I’m sure you can envision the amount of gold spray paint, glitter and crafting supplies that will be flying around. Luckily, I’m not in this one alone and have enlisted the help of both my sisters and their boys to help! { I can assure you I’ll share all the craziness on Instagram! }

You may remember the beautiful mood board I created a few weeks ago. It’s truly one of my favorites yet — probably because of the over-indulgence in gold!

This mood board guided not just the decor and styling for the event, but also the invitation and website design, which I custom created for my sister and new brother-in-law.

The bride and groom gave me a ton of creative freedom with the design and I can honestly say, it was one of my favorite designs I’ve ever worked on. I love the graphic elements combined with the gold texture I used for some of the blockier fonts. And can we just talk about that ampersand. #todiefor

The one idea the bride and groom had early on — like, before they even eloped, early — was to play off their A&W initials. You know, like the root beer brand. We started with a root beer bottle logo, but that quickly and naturally evolved to the two champagne bottles when the party became a New Year’s Eve celebration.

When the invitation arrived in the mail, I was thrilled to find that my sister had included a handful of loose gold sequins in each envelope! I talk a lot on this blog about finding ways of personalizing little details in your life to make it more “you” and this is the perfect example of that! I swear, I never even hinted at this idea! She is more clever than she gives herself credit for!

We all ended up loving the little champagne glass icon so much, we’ve used it in several other places throughout the party design. It became it’s own stand alone logo and makes an appearance on the header of their website.

From blogging, I’m very familiar with WordPress so I used a free WordPress template for the wedding website. Did you know WordPress can even collect RSVPs for you? And all you really need is a nice header graphic like this to make the website feel like it’s part of your wedding or party design!
