Gold, Silver & Lots of Glitter: How to Host a Metallic Themed Party

By  November 19, 2012

This holiday season, be the host that shines by throwing a metallic themed party. Hostess with the Mostess suggests decorating the table using bronze colored dinnerware, lustrous golden cloth napkins, and an embellished center vase holding “flowers” fashioned from pretty decorative knobs and wire ball ornaments. The final look, when it all comes together, is gorgeous.

For dessert, keep the sweets in theme with the decor by making a glittery icing cake and luster dust cake pops.How amazing is the glitzy brown icing on this chocolate cake layered with a cocoa-olallieberry Italian meringue buttercream? Get the recipe here.

We even have your shining host outfit covered! If your party is a on the casual side, throw on a hot pair of metallic jeans, totally trending this season, with a chunky sweater fit for fall and winter. In line with the ornate embellishment look we saw on the runways earlier this year, these pants make for glam style with a modern twist. Speaking of ornate embellishment, don sequins, embroidery and brocade for a more dressed up metallic outfit if you’re party is more cocktail style. Check out our favorite pieces to get the look!
