I believe that creativity is a powerful skill that can be practiced and developed. I hope my blog inspires you to find your very own "creative lment". ~LM
I’ve always viewed party supplies as an investment, and for this purpose, I keep two cupboards above my fridge. It sits brimming with materials, from platters to candles – and has become my go-to-zone for celebrating loved ones milestones throughout the year.
I tend to invest in a palette of white basics: plates, plastic cutlery, napkins, table clothes…since these items work with any season. I have never felt the need to have my guests use hot-pink plates screaming “Girls Night Out” or reach for a vaguely cheerful “39 and Holding!” napkin. The party supply market is flooded with a lot of these products, and while they can be festive, I haven’t found an occasion to use them. I like things simple, unique – and somewhat reusable (when possible). It ends up being less expensive, and because I am particular with what I buy, I think I am able to keep better quality products on hand.
Recently, a client commissioned me to make some party supplies for her upcoming house warming party. She had already made and distributed her own invitations but wanted just a few decorations to complete her vision. While the sky is the limit in terms of the types of products you can incorporate, I wanted to show you how just 2 products helped bring this client’s vision to life. Its low on costs – but high on style!
With just two products, you too can create a classy, customized look to celebrate your next special occasion, whether it be designed from scratch or inspired by an existing item. Contact Creative LMent for a quote today! ~LM
