Last week, we talked about great dresses and gift ideas. In case you missed it, you can read all about it here.
Right after Black Friday and right before Christmas, we look forward to that in-between breather to take a moment and celebrate the holidays with our team knowing how hard they have all worked to represent the DIVA brand. This effort translates into our Holiday party!
Each year, we like to make our Holiday party extra special – by taking a new design theme and creating a space and experience that our DIVA family will enjoy.
Today, we would like to take you behind the scenes of different party ideas we will incorporate to hopefully inspire your holiday party as well as the great styles we will wear.
Come take a peek!

We decided this year to stay away from repetitive holiday colors in our décor. So, we opted to use white and gold theme to give our space an elegant look. Gold and white just brightens up the space and gives the space good energy setting the perfect tone for holiday cheer.
We decided to go for a slight vintage look to replicate old Hollywood glamour. We took faux gold pearl necklace pieces to form a chandelier casing to fall straight down from the fixture. These were fairly easy to incorporate as many of these necklaces were already in-tact. As an extra step, you can add some color shimmer to it such as gold or bronze.

What parties miss sometimes in the décor, is making it personable. So, why not honor your guests with cute place settings? We were inspired by an idea to make more creative eye-catching cards where guests and pull it off a pin board and find their spot for the night. It also is a great keepsake from a special night.

We love Chevron and decided to take a design concept to create a special canvas board. We took pieces of white canvas and lined it with diagonal pieces of blue painter’s tape in a chevron pattern. We then painted the canvas black and let it dry.
In order to make it extra special, we called this wall Art the ‘Picture Board.’ We pinned photos of our employees throughout the year and placed their photos on vintage post card prints and applied them to these boards. It’s a perfect way to celebrate friends and good times.

We found massive displays of lotions, perfumes and glosses to be a little chaotic last year - with displays and gifts pulled out of place and strewn all along the table. So we decided to make it personal and private with a small gift wrapped in a delicate faux colored feather to represent the DIVA style with employee names etched in. This idea was inspired by a DIY blogger above.
It's the touch of a feather than can give a fashion forward feel to gift giving. When laid on a platform of worn white washed wood, it creates a wintery white feel and a play on the eyes.
We would not be DIVAs if we did not have finger foods. Forget the cucumber sandwiches. We’re hungry for tasty desserts - particularly macaroons. We love the muted pinks and golds, which delicately wrap each dessert display from macaroons, truffles and cake pops. Tree lit branches give it an aesthetic and delicate appeal.

Get your drink on at the most popular table at the party! We decided to steer clear of grasshoppers and Bailey's Irish cream and opt for a more fun party drink. We chose 'Sugar Plum Dream's, which creates a playful pink with rimmed sprinkles around the glass to set the tone. When laid out on a chevron gold and white tablecloth, these drinks really pop and get a lot of attention---and traffic!
What to Wear to the Holiday Party
Now comes the fun part - on picking out what to wear for the party. Fortunately, we picked out three of our favorites that we are planning to wear.
Some girls on DIVA staff like to keep it traditional in reds, wines and burgundy colors. It may be safe, but always the color in the spotlight at a holiday event in our Sultry Stretch Cross Back Midi Long-Sleeved Dress (Burgundy). We opted to pair it with nude pumps.
Strapless Sweetheart Gold Sequin Bottom Dress (Black/Gold) Dazzle in gold sequins. We love this strapless dress to show off sexy shoulders and legs during party time. It fits perfectly with the theme and decor of our party. Pair with strappy sandals.
We dared to be different by picking our Dolman Batwing Shiny Snakeskin Maxi Full Length Dress. One of our employees prefers the long and lean look being slightly petite. And, we love this look on her. This dress gives a classy and elegant feel to any holiday party. The snakeskin gives a fashion forward edge - making it the perfect sexy party dress.
