Celebrate From Decor-8: Cute Supplies

While we’re in a celebratory mood, here are some really cute party supplies and pointers. Are you familiar with the Decor8 blog? It’s fab and so is its creator Holly Becker, who graciously allowed me to re-post this. Enjoy, and do jump over to see Holly.

Party Time: Cute Supplies (via Decor-8)

by Holly Becker

Whether you feel like throwing a party or not, these funky and colorful party supplies from Lang Zal Ze Leven discovered via Style Cookie, are sure to get you in the mood to either plan your next fest or decorate a room in your home. I love the punchy colors and despite that we’re entering autumn, I still see these colors on my radar well into the fall and winter seasons because you can add neons and playful stripes and dots to just about anything for a burst of freshness.

I find that simply adding the hot colors to the more subdued ones adds energy and positivity.  Snow white with hot pink, black and silver for winter? Oh yes. Emerald green, mint, peach and orange with copper and neon orange accents for fall, yes yes a million times yes. Let’s toss the traditional palettes this year and bring our spring/summer colors with us right into the cooler months to mix and match and have some fun, ok? Adding brights to moody tones is what I’m inspired by at the moment. What about you?

But yes, back to parties and cute supply goodies. I love those paper plates that look like fancy china shown in the mix above, the patterned doilies, the Japanese fish paper balloons, dot and stripes on napkins, peacock swizzle sticks… And yes, this all looks a little summery I know, but if you mix in deeper shades, you can Autumn-it-up quite easily. Besides, there are no rules except that you love how you’ve decorated your party! That’s the only rule that matters to me.

  1. Oh, I love all those colors and patterns, they look so happy! My teeny tiny home’s base colors are ivory, white, taupe, very pale pink and silver (I collect mercury glass), with pops of cranberry, tangerine, and hot pink. My miniscule powder room has towels in ivory, hot pink, orange and lime green (I like lots and lots of towels). Somehow, the colors work together and, best of all, make me smile. And I am SO getting those peacock swizzle sticks and fancy-schmanzy (paper!) china plates. Thank you much for recommending Decor8!

    1. EB your house sounds adorable, like you! Thank you for writing and for your beautiful smile. I can see it from here. xo F

  2. I have a feeling that it is going to be Party Time All the Time around here since you have come
    (thank the Lord) to live here. Decor-8 will be a great reference since Los Olivos is not innudated with party supply outlets. Thank you.

    1. Oh goodness, thank you Miss Kate. We’re still resting up from that last… but yes, Decor-8 is a great resource. Thank you so much for writing. Love, Frances
