Current Party Trends~Hollywood Glamour

Today's Current Party Trend is Hollywood Glamour
Inspired by movies like My Week with Marilyn and The Artist, there is a huge resurgence of Hollywood glamour inspired receptions and parties. Hollywood inspired receptions feature long dramatic tables for dinner as well as luxurious lounges for after dinner cocktails. Many times there is a combination of the round tables with long tables. 
 Long tables are everywhere in parties and events right now.

These extra wide tables are easily created by putting two 8 foot tables parallel to each other. I love using this method. It gives your guests lots of space and it looks really dramatic.
Even a party out by the pool can be jazzed up with a long table and some beautiful linen and chairs.

Smaller bite sized food doesn't seem to be going anywhere! I love miniature food because this way your guests get to sample multiple items and not feel so stuffed! Food presentations are becoming increasingly so much more creative than just plating food on a platter!
If you are trying to achieve these awesome creations and beautiful miniature food displays MY FAVORITE book is by Peter Callahan called Bite by Bite. This book is full of gorgeous, delicious party bites and beautiful ways to display your miniature creations by down-sizing your buffets.

Cakes for Hollywood glamour are all about the bling baby and sugar flowers. I'm not a huge sugar flower cake fan just because I can't imagine eating all of those sugar flowers. I would hate to waste those beautiful flowers however they really are gorgeous and take so much skill! I really love the look of the bling cake so sleek and elegant.
I'm getting so excited for the new launch of Maddycakes Muse in the next couple of weeks! I've always shared with you my own party world...meaning my home parties but I will start to share more of my "event' party world. I will share with you event planner secrets and how to use them in your events and home parties.

  2. Great stuff here. The information and the detail were just perfect. I think that your perspective is deep, its just well thought out and really fantastic to see someone who knows how to put these thoughts down so well. Great job on this.

  3. That was nice. I guess the visitors dress should be appropriate. The Nobility of the dresses are evident in so many ways, they make the clients feel like Royalty with Regal Splendor.
