After executing  Nordstrom Vancouver’s multiple opening events ranging from 500 to 3,000 guests, our in-house creative dynamo Natasha Frankowski of PartyArt Design is already at work on holiday events. Here are her favorite party décor details for Winter Rustic Chic and Boho Glam looks.

Winter Rustic Chic Holiday Party

This look incorporates the warm tones of winter with finer elegant features. Characteristics of silver birch weaves itself throughout the theme. Imagine yourself by a warm cozy fire wrapped in soft fur, seated on luxurious comfortable furniture, melting winter away with a warm hearty meal.

Sparkly crisp drinks akin to the snow and temperatures outside, are a welcome refreshment. Tables lit and decorated with soft candlelight, pine cone accents, along with white and silver birch décor enhance the mood.

Boho Glam

For winter events, Boho Glam combines all the rich grandeur of 2014 but with a more glamorous feel adding softness and vintage character. Floral are over the top with high flower and bloom content, beautifully loose with natural design shapes; as if almost freshly picked from a garden rather than tightly packed and overly sophisticated.

Trailing  and hanging elements that catch the glint of gold in the light can be found in all aspects of the decor. Mirrored surfaces, elegant chairs combined with rustic-boho vine chairs or antique weathered and traditional wood tables. Color tones are warm and soft with an abundance of amber, gold and bronze hues.

Dessert tables drip with delicious treats adorned with rich bold gold and accented with floral. Sparkling gold is the main focus but notes of pinks, sherbets and ambers work really well with this palette. (via Culinary Capers)
