9 Party Items for the New Year - Little Blue Deer

Shari of LITTLE BLUE DEER is the uber hip designer who gives blogs a stylish makeover (including ours). If you don't know her, be sure to check out her portfolio and her blog. You will agree - she rocks!

Shari's 9 Party Items:

1. Anthropologie Fleur De Lys DINNERWARE
Shari has already grown tired of her wedding china. Next on her gift list? Fleur De Lys dinnerware from Anthropologie!

2.  Peonies
What's a dinner party without a gorgeous flower arrangement? Difficult to find, and expensive (which pretty much describes Shari's taste), peonies are a stunning can't miss! Go HERE for the "how to" on this arrangement.

You can serve pizza for a party if you have a beautifully set table, and that includes these whimsical placecard holders. Crane's is Shari's go-to for stationery and paper products, they never disappoint!

4. Cabbages and Roses TABLE LINENS
You will adore Cabbages and Roses table linens! Shari won a set from AB Home Interiors, and they are gorgeous.  

5. San Pellegrino Missoni Water:
Shari serves sparkling water at her dinner parties and loves the new Missoni Edition! 

6. Diptyque Coriandre CANDLE
This candle is perfect for a dinner party. The delicious scent is not overpowering and adds just a hint of warmth.

A fun and fabulous treat to send home with guests! Who doesn't love bacon?! 

8. Ruche Parisian Chic Striped TUNIC:
It's important to be comfortable and look fabulous while entertaining! This darling striped tunic would look fab with leggings and Chanel ballet flats for a cozy evening in! 

9. HOW TO DRESS WELL - Love Remains
Shari's favorite album of the year! It is perfect background music, and how can you not love a band called How to Dress Well? 

Shari - you truly are a style maven - what great ideas!
