4 Tips to Frame Up Your Entertaining

It’s almost party season! As the weather gets cooler and we want to gather and be around friends and family, decorations and activities are key. Check out these four easy party ideas using readymade frames from Studio Décor™!

Chalkboard Party Sign

 

 

Know where to go with this easy to create chalkboard sign. A pretty, painted open back frame serves two purposes, first to match the decorations of your party and second, to point the way! You can scatter a few about if you have different areas, like a kids area, big-screen section or nosh table to help your guests wander freely without making you the night’s concierge.

 

 

Frame Tray

 

 

Need a way to get drinks to your guests quickly? An 11″x14″ Wall Frame makes an excellent serving tray. Just add some pretty paper behind the glass, make sure you glue in the back so it’s secure, and you’ve got the perfect serving surface. You can even place a few of these around your home, so guests know where they can set dripping glasses, instead of on your reclaimed, hand-stained barn door coffee table.

 

 

 

Framed Menu

 

By framing your evening’s menu, and placing it on the sideboard as they walk into the dining area or even on the table will help your guests relax and enjoy dinner without wondering if there is any tuna surprise coming their way!

Adding little touches, like framed place cards for a dinner, is a nice gift your guest can take away after the party is over. Try your hand at calligraphy and write their names, or use a printer, either way your guests will love the little details!

Of course, it’s all the little details that count when you host a dinner party. Tell us your favorite tips and ideas for the perfect party!

October Trend // Back in Black … and White

Trend Alert Banner black and white

Black and White has taken over the fashion world this fall. I was initially inspired by a bold B&W striped woman’s suit that I saw in a magazine; it instantly caught my eye.

October is a colorful month in which we typically associate with hues like candy apple green, pumpkin orange, and purple (think everyone’s favorite dinosaur). While these are staple Halloween colors, black and white is the thread throughout this oh-so-spooky month of Glitter and Ghouls.

Using a variety of Michael’s product, I have created projects that reflect the simple, stylish nature of this contrasting duo. From a rich velvet and lace wreath to a metal cuff wrapped in baker’s twine, this trend offers endless possibilities for your home, apparel, jewelry, holiday décor and more.
