If Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) from Breakfast at Tiffany’s came to Valiant Events to have her Christmas party or an end-of-year party styled, this is what we imagine she would have gone for.
Nothing less than elegance, sophistication and a touch of glitter, this a beautiful look for your cocktail dress kind of affair. Everyone loves that occasional formal party as it’s a great excuse to get all glammed up!
Event Styling Mood board: Regal Christmas
To bring this look together, start with a colour palette of solid black or a rich blue hue paired with your choice of warm metallics (gold, bronze, or copper). Remember to sprinkle glitter into the mix! For our mood board, we focused on black and gold.
While you adhere to these colours in selecting furniture pieces, also consider texture. Lush velvet and buttoned furniture are popular choices for creating that luxe feel. Pieces with shiny surfaces are also great choices.
When it comes to accessorising this look, you can either keep it light or go all out. With the furniture pieces already rich and full of character, you can pare back a few key items to complete the look. Whatever direction you go, make sure you incorporate some sparkle, greenery, and Christmas-y elements!
