How many times have you bought décor for a party only to find yourself throwing out when it’s all said and done? If you’re a Your Perfect Party customer, you’ve purchased one of our themed collections, hosted a party for your friends, and maybe now you’re thinking, “How can I use these pieces to create a different look?”. We’ll clue you in on how to transform a party collection to create a different party for each season and even repurpose pieces from the collection in your home all year round!

Metallics, prints, and rich colors make the classic LA Party Collection feel luxurious and posh. Transitioning this party collection into a spooky Halloween Cocktail Party can be done in four easy steps.

  • Start by picking out the darker toned pieces in the collection. We choose the Black and Gold Votives, the Moc-Croc Risers, and the 3-Tier Glass Server (find these pieces included in our LA Collection).
  • Next utilize statement pieces from the collection. We choose the Gold Martini Glasses, the Acrylic Rectangular Topper, and the reverse side of the 16″ x 108″ Table Runner (these pieces are also included in our LA Collection).
  • Next add in pieces from your personal Halloween Collection. We choose a spooky black crow, tall and short ‘Edgar Allen Poe’ vases, Halloween-themed linens, and a “Happy Halloween” sign (items available in our Transformation Collection – email for details)
  • Finally, add the finishing touches with caramel apples, festive cupcakes, a spooky cocktail, and dry ice! To create a spooky cocktail, we added black colored gel and dry ice to our favorite martini recipe. Note: Be careful when handling dry ice – keep away from children and do not add to the drinks you are serving.

Now, we’ll transition the same collection to create a warm and festive Thanksgiving Dessert Bar.

  • Start this transformation by selecting gold-tone, eye-catching pieces in the collection. Our picks were the 3-Tier Glass Server, the Jumbo Glass Serving Bowl, the Gold Metallic Risers, the 16″ x 108″ Table Runner, and the Gold Champagne Flutes (all pieces available in our LA Collection).
  • Next we grabbed the Black and Gold Votives, the Moc-Croc Risers, and the Guest Hand Towel Holder. (Why the Guest Hand Towel Holder? Keep reading to find out!) The Black and Gold Votives are basic, darker toned pieces that can be scattered throughout the dessert bar without distracting from your statement pieces. Risers are very important in this particular transformation to ensure that all of the eye-catching statement pieces are displayed in an uncluttered fashion (all pieces included in our LA Collection).
  • For our personal touches, we choose a Jumbo Gold Pumpkin, a gold sea-urchin sculpture (found on a desk in our office!), assorted squash, and a few pomegranates for a pop of color. To make the Jumbo Gold Pumpkin more visible, we turned over the Guest Hand Towel Holder and repurposed it as a riser!
  • Finally, we picked up some tasty fall desserts from our local market which included Cheesecakes, Mini Pies, Specialty Cookies, Pumpkin Rolls, Ferrero Rocher Chocolates (to compliment the gold-tone theme), and ingredients to whip up Apple Cider Mimosas (get the recipe here).
