It is crazy to think it is already December and the year is coming to an end!  Today I’m excited to share my final Monthly Mood Board of the year with you!  There is so much to celebrate in the month of December so instead of focusing on a specific holiday, I’ve created a board that is full of glitz and glam and I hope it provides you with inspiration for pretty much any December soirée!  The color palette of black, creams, metallics, and a hint of blush is moody, glamorous, and the perfect way to welcome winter.  Sequins are everywhere this time of the year, from clothing to table linens – December is definitely the month sequins shine most!  In addition to sequins, I’ve incorporated luxurious velvet and sassy leather to add depth and texture.  As you can imagine, I am a big fan of stars and think they are the perfect addition to holiday events.  Although this mood board lends itself to pretty much any winter celebration, I think it is particularly perfect for a New Years Eve party!

I used this mood board as inspiration for the holiday party I threw for my Star Hansen Events team this past weekend.  My team of administrative and event assistants is so incredible and I wanted to treat them to a really special evening in celebration of them and their dedication to our events!  They know better than anyone how much work goes into designing and planning a special event and I spared no detail when planning their holiday party.  I used the color palette and many of the design elements shown in this mood board.  It turned out beautiful and we all had an amazing time.  I can’t wait to share photos from this super special event.  Stay tuned!
