Throw a fabulous holiday party on a budget!

This past weekend we were celebrating 2014's big accomplishments for Nicole White Designs, including a featured spread in Better Homes and Gardens!
First thing to choose is a guest list,  once you come up with a comfortable number then choose a venue that can accommodate your guests. We choose Brio Tuscan grill because of their private outdoor area with 10 tables for our 30 guests.

Come up with a food and drink plan,  we wanted happy hour cocktails and appetizers along with a fabulous dessert table of cake pops and red velvet cupcakes!
Finally the decor, our color scheme was black, white and gold. The linens were white so we added black placemats to the tables that I folded into a diamond shape that complimented the round tables. I used gold ornaments and added gold tinsel to our hydrangeas vases.
Our dessert table was courtesy of Mimi from Divine Cakery. She used gold candalabra style cupcake stands and black and white cake stands (a score from HomeGoods) to showcase her desserts. The final touches were added by using gold gift boxes I found at the dollar store to create height to the table. I used a roll of black streamer on the dessert table to create the black and white stripes. The result was a perfect holiday party that reflected Nicoles impeccable style!
Dollar Store decorations: $50
Whole Foods Flowers: $40
Styling a party for $90 is almost unheard of but remember to keep things simple and elegant to keep costs down.
