Confetti

4 May

Hello Glamourites,

Sorry for being very MIA the last month but it was the final countdown of school before summer vacation which meant there was lots of work and presentations to be done. Luckily I am all finished now and I have much more free time for hobbies, friends and having fun! I thought it would be appropriate to then write this post on party inspiration and decorations. Confetti is fun, colourful and easy to use in many ways for any type of party. Some people associate it with children’s parties but I have found some ideas of how you can use it in new creative ways! xx Glamour Planner

Taking strips of tissue paper or anything that is colourful and tying to a rope you can hang this for party decor around the room. It is easy to customize making the colour match your particular theme.  confettistring

Glue confetti or glitter to the exterior of balloons to make for a touch of sparkle. confettiballoon2

Using clear balloons and filling the inside with whatever you have around the house, buttons, paper scraps, glitter, sequins, ect makes for an exciting illusion. confettiballoon

Another use for confetti is to decorate your glasses or dishes to surprise your guests! confettiwine

V Day Countdown

31 Jan

Hello Glamourites,

I can’t believe it’s the last day of January today! It feels like just last week we were celebrating the Christmas holidays and only yesterday that school started. Before you know it Valentine’s Day will be here! Which means now is the time to start planning and sending out invitations for your V-day Party. Valentine’s Day is one of my favourite “holidays” – besides showing your family, friends and loved ones how much you care about them, you have an excuse to eat chocolate all day! Anytime I am able to have a themed dinner or party I jump on it. Make it fun and add some special décor; people get that much more excited when they see the effort you’ve put into creating a special ambiance. Hope you get some inspiration for your Valentines plans xx Glamour Planner

When setting your table it doesn’t have to be anything difficult; it can be as simple as putting some streamers down as shown below. vdaypartytable2Glitter up your beverage station with putting some sparkles on your champagne bottles.

Easy decorations to add some festive love around you house, cut out hearts from paper or fabric and attach to red string and hang around! vdaypartydecor

Cute signs for your food and treats add to the visual display.

If dinner isn’t your thing than a simpler option is hosting a brunch. Breakfast items are much easier to prepare or simply buy them from the store. These adorable little yogurt parfaits are very easy and look festive! vdaypartyparfaits

Hi Glamourites,

Hope everyone is finishing up their last minute Christmas shopping and errands….I know I still have a few little gifts to still buy! With all the many holiday parties happening you have many opportunities to get creative and experiment with make-up techniques. Hope these are inspiring to you and you play up the glam this Christmas   xx Glamour Planner

Pair a bold {festive} red lip with a clean silver eyeshadow and black eyeliner. It’ll look like you just walked off the red carpet!HolidaysMakeUp5I am in love with these eye make-up, the shading from silver, gold, bronze and brown. Totally EYE catching!

This look gives the idea of being natural but accenting on facial features, stunningly beautiful. HolidaysMakeUp4

If you want to spend some extra time and get really detailed you can buy jewels and the proper eyelash glue to add to your sparkly touches! HolidaysMakeUp2

Apologies

17 Dec

Hello Glamourites!

First, a big apology for my delay and absence in posting anything the last little while, I was completely taken over by school recently with final projects and exams. It is now Christmas holidays and I will finally have time to relax and spend more time on the blog! Here are a few topics I will be touching on this week to prep for Christmas and this festive season.     xx Glamour Planner

Baking! It’s not the holidays unless you have sugary, sweet, tasty treats to snack on. These Gingerbread doughnuts are ones I will be trying shortly. More recipe suggestions to come!

A touch of GOLD

15 Sep

Hello Glamourites,

I hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend and found time for some relaxation today! Grab some inspiration from this post and throw together a little gathering for this evening. My main inspiration when planning a party comes from having a theme of some sort to bring everything together, from the decor to the type of food served. However when you are having some people over for a casual dinner party or drinks on a Thursday, it’s a lot of effort to go all out last minute, but it’s still nice to have little touches to make the evening special and create flow. One example that is easy is to pick one colour to coordinate everything with: napkins, flowers, table decor ect… Now of course I love anything sparkly or bright so naturally I love the colour gold; it adds some shine to the room and makes your guest feel like they are being spoiled. These pictures are examples of some straightforward tips that can be done last minute! xx Glamour Planner

Take some streamers from your cupboard or run to the dollar store, cut the sides of the streamers and twist them as they hang. The simplest way to transform a wall for a party time! c6ae2d5f55abf7ea8cdafd06d161ceb8

Serving up some champagne or sparkling wine? Dip the glasses in eatable gold glitter. 8306396e524ca10e2e2505be0f178a93

Creating signs for a buffet table or snack table adds an extra level of sophistication, it shows you took the time. Take the sign and pop it in a little frame for a professional look. b0fa1b6f8fef0d97faad40b641ca1c89

Take your old wooden candle holders or some cheapies and add some glitter, a quick DIY project! efd752d694065c78001b35a8eed3efc5

The simplicity of this table I adore. Adding two tone table cloths also adds interest and something as simple of a hanging feature above the table completes the table setup. 11edad85e33a25420af3b964f8ccc554

I just enjoy this 🙂 f82af8a0f9ea5de195e72a4904b0c015

THE outfit

15 Jul

Hello Glamourites,

After all this time I can’t believe I have yet to do a post on Weddings! So here it is, my first post related to my ultimate dream job -wedding planner. I thought to myself today what is more important than the bride’s wardrobe and how she looks on her wedding day….well nothing! This is dedicated to everything the bride  is wearing as well as her accessories. Enjoy xx

THE DRESS ~nothing can top this so we’ll start there..

This glam show-stopping gown is fit for a fairy queen. The intricate gems and beading on the bodice draws the eye upwards towards the bride’s face as well as creating a sleek cinched in waistline. The ballgown skirt makes this every girl’s dream dress.

weddingoutfit-dressDREAM TRAIN! Especially if you are having a simpler dress in the front or top portion, having a dramatic train is a gorgeous aspect. When walking down the aisle, this dress makes a real statement after you have passed them on your way to the altar. A ruffled train, almost mimicking the look of large rose petals, creates the ultimate drama!
weddingoutfit-dress2Another important item that you don’t want to overlook is the bouquet holder as it compliments the thought that has gone into the flowers themselves. This sparkly gem will show off the flowers and appear like glitter in the bride’s hands.
weddingoutfit-bouquetholderWe cannot of course forget about the shoes….after you have chosen your stunning, yet comfortable heels, it is fun to add a little pizzazz. These clip on broaches can be added on later for the ceremony if you have an alternate dress and want to show off the shoes!
weddingoutfit-heelsIf you are going with a more understated dress it is exciting to chose from the variety of fabulous veiling they now have available. This particular veil is interesting how it is bunched to one side and now balanced creating an alluring effect.

wedding-theveilNow I know this may not be the bride’s decision but I can’t help but post this stunning ring!! The ring of course completes the wedding day’s outfit.
