Hi everyone! I’m Kristie and a new contributor to The Celebration Shoppe! So excited to be here!
One trend I’m loving now is the easy breezy style of rustic chic parties, showers and weddings. The decor and food can be so effortless, and an early autumn evening is the perfect time to take advantage of the lingering twilight and host this kind of relaxed soiree.
Pick a pretty party invitation to set the tone, like this one from my design collection on Minted, then pull a farm table into the back yard and dress it up with a bohemian mix of candlesticks, mismatched china and chairs. Add simple twinkling votives, a fall-inspired menu, and some easy DIY projects using natural elements like leaves, apples and artichokes. Enjoy a relaxed evening with your friends and celebrate the start of a beautiful season.
