If there’s one fashion label and one person who has almost single-handedly contributed to Paris’ place in the center of the fashion world, it’s Christian Dior. In the 1940s, Harper’s Bazaar praised Dior for his ‘new look’ of women’s wear, which celebrated the female form in elegant modesty. Though Dior credited fashion designer Robert Piguet as teaching him that true elegance comes from simplicity, we’ve only kept half of that in mind in compiling all the fabulous ways to Throw A Dior Themed Party.
1) Have An Elegantly Decked Table
You can really think ‘wedding inspired’ when you think your upcoming Dior party. A soft apricot – a shade lighter than peach – aesthetic, dotted with white or apricot colored rose table settings and white candles will be a treat for children and adults alike. Hire white tables and chairs and florals from Luxe Creations for the perfect graceful look. Another amazing idea? White or pink proteas! For an edgy look, have them lightly splashed with red paint. You’ll understand why in a second.
2) Desserts And High Tea
For the desserts and cake, Sugar Tables is a sweet treat genius. A high tea with mini sandwiches, cupcakes, marshmallow desserts and tea will work wonderfully. If you want to go to a great venue for high tea? Tea Rose Garden hosts private events, white tables and chairs included!
3) Have Everyone Wear Gray (And White)
Every fashion house needs its color. For Dior, it’s Trianon gray, also called Montaigne gray. This might sound dull but against that soft apricot will look amazing. Alternatively, guests can also opt for a brilliant white look, a timeless classic in the fashion world. Another color Dior is known for, quite differently to gray, is a vibrant red. Thus, a red lip with a neutral outfit will be completely vivacious. Hence the red paint.
4) Get Your Nails Did
Nail bar? Yes. Dior party favors to take home? Yes! No look is complete without fabulous nails and a Dior nail lacquer. LA Spa On The Go is a mobile wellness spa that will cater to all the ladies wanting a wonderful mani or pedi at your private event.
5) Have A Touch Of Fairy-tale
Design houses are always throwing chic parties for their staff and models after a great show. The most memorable? Their fairy-tale themed party of 2017, where guests masqueraded around in elegant attire fit for contemporary princesses. The point? You can invite a real-life princess to your party, with Yombu’s little black book of princesses on speed dial. We know people. So, let us know and we’ll send them over.
