Party Girl: Ladies Night.

If there is one label that I have alway detested it would be that of party girl. I consider myself to be one, but definitely not in the negative context that most people associate with those words. I love a good party- lush flowers, party dresses, whimsical decor, delicious food, and a dramatic table setting are all at parties that I adore. I mean, sometimes there is nothing better than sitting around the television with some beer, take-out pizza and good company; but why not go all out every once in a while? So with this brand new series Party Girl, I'd like to share with you the kind of party girl that I am. Check out all this party's details after the jump and click on the picture for a much larger one. Oh and please, no keg-stands. File under celebrate.

  • The party: A decadent ladies night
  • The invite: Find a vintage magazine cover, make it personal and send it via evite to all your fabulous girlfriends
  • The place: In the formal dining room, of course
  • The table: Decorate with a festive tablecloth, muted flowers and pops of purple, red and gold, gold, gold (never enough). Don't forget the sparkles! 
  • The food: Contrast the formal atmosphere with rustic stick-to-your bones food; try a spring salad with mixed vegetables, roasted Cornish game hens and macaroons with champagne as the easiest dessert ever.
  • What to wear: Fun and camp dresses; get inspired from Louis Vuitton's fall 2009 runway (one of my all time favorites ever)
  • Just for fun: Fill (emptied and cleaned) eggshells with gold glitter and go crazy smashing them on each other
