Last month, we focused on color. This month, we're talking about entertaining. How about the intersection of the two? If you're looking for color inspiration (or just plain old inspiration) for your holiday bash, check out Confetti System's website and blog. Nicholas Andersen and Julie Ho, founders of Confetti System, handcraft gorgeous party decor using fabric, tissue paper, silk, and cardboard. While piñatas might not work for every occasion — and we have friends who insist otherwise — Confetti System's gorgeous color combinations alone are worth checking out and their fabric-wrapped branches, fringed blindfolds, and party decor are sure to inspire the DIYers out there. Best of all, if you can't live without a shimmery piñata or a tasseled garland, they have an online store.
1. Deep plum and navy would translate well into an elegant dinner party.
2. Multicolored fabric strips make for fun, impromptu decorations.
3. Gold and peach would be unexpected and glam for a brunch on a snowy day.
4. Christmas red and greens look surprisingly chic on these piñatas.
5. Oversized silver, gray, and beige tassels are a pretty take on New Year's Eve colors.
6. A tiny paper and fabric arrangement would work well as place cards draped across each guest's plate.
7. A bedecked branch would look artsy and homemade as a buffet centerpiece.
8. Layers of white crepe look almost like feathers — and icy white decorations would look great at an after-skating party, complete with hot chocolate and cookies.
9. Gold confetti would look festive in bud vases — just don't stuff it in your invitations.
10. Fringed blindfolds would also look great tied around vases or as napkin rings.
