Over the Top with Gossip Girl - DIY Party in a Box

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of coordinating  a DIY Party in a Box for our client’s 30th Birthday celebrations with the theme being “Gossip Girl” and a requested colour palette of Black, Silver and White with some splashes of Green. Our instructions were to provide something over the top and eye catching but within a budget.

The function was held at our client’s residence with 30 guests attending.  The Inspired Occasion provided our popular personalised DIY Party in a Box which contained everything the client needed to style her very own party in style. Our Gossip Girl kit was complete with trestle table, table cloths, backdrop, decorations, risers, cake stands, champagne bucket and glasses, drink dispenser, trays, vintage bottles with straws and a spectacular centre piece.

The cocktail party menu consisted of both sweet and savoury items:

Green Peppermint Ganache Macarons
Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta
Mini Gourmet Burgers with Cheese and Chutney
Tomato and Basil Bruschetta Mix with an assortment of breads
Red Velvet and cream cheese Rosette Cake

We served the panna cotta in miniature coffee cups and individual portions of bruschetta in clear glass jars which helped create the over the top Gossip Girl theme and gave the table a talking point.

All dessert station edibles, stationery and themed items were designed and made in-house, including the centre piece complete with peacock feathers and white ostrich feathers adding WOW factor and coordinating perfectly with the colour  palette requested.

The dessert station was completed with four candy jars filled with assorted green, white and silver chocolates and jelly beans.

Below are a few pre pickup shots that we managed to grab before all was collected.

  1. The pops of green and yellow are a great touch!

  2. I really love the mix of colors, makes it look really pretty.
